The ArGest™ units are self contained, portable solutions providing both disk storage and LTO-5 or LTO-6 tape archival / backup in an easy to use road warrior configuration - just add Mac Book Pro. We even provide the right-sized SKB cases (desktop or rack).

ArGest units are available in HDD and SSD configurations providing ~500MB/sec read and write for the HDD and ~1GB/sec read and write for the SSD versions via SAS or Thunderbolt connectivity

TOLIS Group's new ArGest™ Rack and Cube solutions extend our tape-based backup, archival, and interchange offerings and provide a high-performance and easily portable solution for editors, videographers, music production / front of house teams, photographers, and other creative professionals in the field.

ArGest offers both high-speed disk storage and industry standard LTO-5 or LTO-6 backup and archival solutions in a single unit. Easily connected via SAS or Thunderbolt*, the new ArGest Cube for desktop environments and ArGest Rack for rack-based environments make high performance ingest and archival available in a highly portable and affordable package for both Mac Pro and all Thunderbolt-enabled Mac systems.

With sustained media ingest speeds of over 1GB/sec (SSD systems), 500MB/sec (HDD systems), LTO-5 archive write speeds of 140MB/sec (.5TB/hour), and LTO-6 write speeds of 180MB/sec (.64TB/hour) using your choice of BRU Producer's Edition or BRU Server software (included), the road is no longer a dangerous place for jobs generating large amounts of data.  No more stacks of Firewire drives or long FTP sessions.

Yep, it's THAT Fast!

Yep! It's THAT Fast

In addition to being incredibly fast, these systems are incredibly quiet - more than 40% quieter than a standard external LTO-5 tape drive. Additionally, the performance of both the SSD and HDD solutions, as well as their extremely quiet operation, make editing on the road very responsive - especially when compared to USB or Firewire solutions.  We even offer the right-sized SKB** travel cases to make traveling with the ArGest Cube and Rack units as worry free as possible.

NOTE: LTO-6 systems shipping Jan/13
