High performance central storage perfect for digital content creation

Space is ideal for larger workgroups, as it builds on the Mini or Midi Space to offer increased capacity and performance using 16 rather than 8 drives. Its flexible expansion units let you scale capacity and performance as need be.

Optimised for digital content creation, Space works with any mix of Mac, Windows or Linux clients.

It’s safe, fast and cost-effective – the perfect solution to an increasing need for quick, secure data storage. Able to use standard Ethernet connectivity, Space is easy to install without new cabling or client adaptor cards.

Space comes with four 1G Ethernet (GbE) ports for connecting client workstations. For best performance with GbE clients it’s best to channel bond these ports to a GbE switch and connect client workstations to the switch.

When you use Space with a Space Ex you’ll enjoy even greater performance. To maximise this, simply fit a 10GbE Ethernet card and use 10GbE connection with a GbE switch. 

Space has additional expansion slots to add up to five more cards. You can use these to increase the number of GbE clients directly connected to Space without a switch. Or add up to ten 10GbE ports and connect client workstations needing more performance than a GbE connection can offer. The expansion slots can also be used to add extra RAID cards to support more Space Ex units and faster speeds.

See the Performance Section to see how Space really stacks up!
