The annual National Association of Broadcasters show NAB bills itself as the place where “Content Comes to Life”. Well this year from April 7-10 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, storage will come to life with the addition of the OWC Jupiter Callisto to OWC’s Jupiter line of enterprise storage appliances.
OWC Jupiter Callisto is a unified storage appliance that can function both as a NAS and as a SAN at the same time. Built on the ZFS storage architecture, OWC Jupiter Callisto provides advanced features to ensure data protection, optimization, and flexibility allowing creative teams to handle nearly any storage requirement from general IT through video production with Ethernet speeds up to 10Gb/s. When more storage is needed, additional OWC Jupiter mini-SAS chassis can quickly be added for up to 256TB of total capacity. Other World Computing can now support any workflow from single-user to large teams all backed by OWC’s leading service and support. Article Continues…
Warranty expiration dates always seem to have a way of sneaking up on us.
And recently, I found myself up against the warranty clock with my MacBook Pro. The machine was having an issue with the Retina screen. Several pesky pixels were “stuck on” displaying white dots where they weren’t supposed to.
It was admittedly a minor issue, but the Retina displays are expensive, and I definitely wanted to make sure it was taken care of under warranty.
But as it wasn’t a major issue for daily use, I put off dealing with it. And then suddenly it was do-or-die time with the warranty – and the date just happened to intersect fatefully with CES 2014. I could not take my MacBook in to Apple and be without it at CES, and I was short on time to borrow a Mac and get transferred over and tested. Article Continues…

Light carves through the darkness like a scythe, bringing the archeologist in touch with artifacts from a century ago. The year is 2114. The location is downtown Los Angeles. He gingerly walks through the ancient office, gaping at dusty cheesegrater Mac Pros like the inaugural visitor to a new museum. The man then stumbles upon a peculiar sight—hundreds of shiny silver bricks. What could this be? Didn’t people back then use small thumb drives?
In the world of film production, large-capacity hard drives are a necessity. At our hybrid media studio, Psychic Bunny, we rely on OWC drives for duplicating footage during shoots, transferring materials back and forth between servers, and as backup solutions. There’s nothing like the warm, fuzzy feeling you get on a shoot after you’ve duplicated that vulnerable little RED card to not one, but two Mercury Elite Pros—one as a main footage drive, and the other as a backup.
