DDP Changes Everything
DDP V3 is a free upgrade for all existing and new DDP users, and is highly
recommended - anyone interested in shared storage should take a closer look...

D

ynamic Drive Pool (DDP) is an
Award Winning Ethernet-based
SAN shared storage, which offers
unparalleled performance, is easy to
use, and with a redefined Workflow
Manager, is not just a shared storage
solution, but a real solution for even
the most complex video and audio
workflows.
IBC2014, the home ground of Ardis
Technologies (the makers of DDP),
saw the new release of DDP OS V3,
boasting many advanced features
unseen anywhere else.
Web GUI
DDP has gained a revamped, webbased GUI for ease of use. New to
the GUI are functions such as, Folder
Volumes with Quotas, AVFS2NAS,
Archiware
P5
backup,
Nagios
integration, UPS manager, direct link
to Raid Card, and many others.
Built-in notifications appear on the
left panel for events, such as drive
failure, volume check, and progress
of backups. Uniquely, DDP has a builtin algorithm that can analyse and
recognise the type of video stream,
allowing the operator to see how
many streams of each video type are
currently running.
Workflow Manager
With the release of the new Workflow
Manager, DDP features another
innovation.
From within the DDP software you
can create lists of users and groups
of users. However, permissions can
be assigned on a desktop level too.
From here you can then assign users
and groups to folder hierarchies
within drives. The folder permissions
assignable are read/write, drop
box, read only, and read/write

with no delete. Crucially, Workflow
Manager functions equally well in a
heterogeneous Windows, Mac, and
Linux environment.
The
Workflow
Manager
was
developed for audio and video, with
the non-IT user in mind. There is no
need for a complex Open Directory
or Active Directory server and the
technical overheads that go with it.
However, DDP V3 fully supports
LDAP and AD/OD services. With
this new functionality, it will enable
enhanced workflow additions for
applications like, Pro Tools, Final Cut
Pro, FCPX, Media Composer, Premiere,
Prunus, Edius, Fairlight, Vegas,
Softron, and many others.
Managing the workflow is important
for every organisation, and with
Workflow Manager it's very easy.
When someone says "SAN", the first
thing that comes to mind is speed.
DDP is even faster than Fibre Channel
systems. It can use MCS (Multiple
Connections per Session), its own
technology to pair multiple 1 GbE or 10
GbE Ethernet lines.
Also, as AVFS drivers are installed,
DDP controls desktops with Bandwidth
Manager to provide QoS - Quality
of Service. However, in large
organisations, not everyone needs fast
access, and sometimes administrators
like to use NAS storage, without
installing any software to client
machines.
Now with DDP's own AVFS2NAS
module, you can use DDP volumes as
NAS, with no need for any software
installation.
What's more, you can create users,
assign permissions, and utilise
Workflow Manager for folder access
rights. So DDP can work equally well as
SAN and/or NAS.

DDP24D provides Ethernet-based SAN storage

DDP can report on video stream type usage

Folder Volumes
This clever engineering deserves
special attention. In a shared storage
environment there are usually multiple
volumes, which are connected to
different
workstations
(variously
called drives, LUNS, media spaces,
workspaces).
This is because not everyone should
have access to all the media files at
the same volume. The disadvantage of
this method is that if you want to give
the same media to another user, you
will need to move files/media between
the volumes, and this means you will
start copying the data, which takes up
extra space, extra time, and reduces
the overall storage bandwidth. Also,
when working with MAM, or backup
solutions, such as Archiware P5, it is
much more difficult to manage these
processes across multiple volumes.
Folder Volumes resolve this issue.
Folder Volumes are folders/directories
within the same DDP Volume and
when connected to a PC, Mac or Linux
workstation, they are seen at a root
level.
This means you can have one DDP
Volume (one Namespace) and any
number of roots.
The
advantages
of this are; no more
copying,
no
extra
bandwidth
usage,
and the administrator
for MAM or backup
applications needs to
manage only one DDP
Volume. All Folder
Volumes are part of the
same DDP Volume, and
therefore users have
all capacity of the DDP.
Capacity per user can
be managed by Quotas,

so for example, if one user is close to
exceeding his quota of, say 2 TB, even
during the ingest, the administrator of
the DDP can extend that quota on the
fly.
Archiware Backup
Every DDP comes with Archiware
P5 pre-installed, and the license for
P5 Backup is included with the DDP
hardware. Every installation gains
immediate professional grade backup
to LTO tape. Tapes can easily be
stored off-site for the highest security
requirement and disaster recovery.
Included P5 Backup license allows
backup to LTO tapes, using a single
tape drive, but the license may be
extended for use with tape libraries,
synchronisation, or archive modules.
An unlimited number of tapes can
be written and P5 Backup keeps track
of all tapes and files written. The P5
Backup catalogue can be searched and
browsed, using a web browser.
Data can be transferred between
the DDP and LTO with a speed of up
to 160 MB/s. Additionally, P5 Archive
for migrating media offline can be
activated simply by extending the
license, with no further installation
necessary
P5 Synchronize is also available as an
extension for cloning DDP volumes for
data availability.
