Large (B1, C1) system description: Proxy on dedicated Proxy Storage system

A large (B1, C1) GV STRATUS system is characterized by proxy stored on a dedicated Proxy Storage system. The Proxy Storage system is similar to a K2 Nearline SAN, or NAS. The Proxy Storage system stores the low resolution proxy media. The Proxy Storage file system server is a GV STRATUS server that has the role of Proxy Storage Server. This server is the SNFS file system server for the Proxy Storage system. The server provides an HTTP server that GV STRATUS client PCs access for proxy. A SMB share is also required to which servers such as K2 systems and Render Engines write proxy.

This large GV STRATUS system is designed for a large-scale workflow and consists of a K2 Summit online or production SAN, a Proxy Storage system, multiple GV STRATUS servers, and multiple GV STRATUS client PCs. Client PCs that use a proxy media workflow are connected to the Corporate LAN or to the control network. Client PCs that use a high resolution media workflow are connected to the media (iSCSI) network. At least one PC must host the GV STRATUS Control Panel application. A designated PC on the control network hosts the SiteConfig application and the K2Config application. GV STRATUS Control Panel, SiteConfig, and K2Config applications can all be on the same PC, and that PC can be the K2 SAN control point PC.

In addition to the Proxy Storage file system server, one or more GV STRATUS servers host components that provide the underlying functionality to the overall GV STRATUS system. Components can be distributed across multiple GV STRATUS servers to provide processing power where it is needed to support your workflow. A system with one GV STRATUS Core server is classified as a B1 system. A system with core server functionality distributed across multiple GV STRATUS Core servers is classified as a C1 system.
