GB Labs unveils Unify Hub and cements new partnership with PROLANE at CABSAT 2021

GB Labs will debut Unify Hub, its new storage management platform at CABSAT 2021 and will also showcase its SPACE, FastNAS and Cloak DR solutions. GB Labs is attending this year’s show with its new partner, broadcast services provider and systems integrator PROLANE, who specialises in offering technology services, AV, and broadcast systems, alongside comprehensive technical support, to customers in the MENA market.

Ben Pearce, CBO Asia and Co-Founder at GB Labs, commented, “We’re really looking forward to meeting up with new and existing partners, customers and industry friends at CABSAT 2021 and highlighting the new innovations we have been working on to help overcome the challenges inherent to the current trend of mixed home, office and remote working. The show offers us a fantastic opportunity to connect with people in-person after a long time of restricted travel. MENA is an exciting market where our products offer a great amount of value as businesses look to increase efficiency. We look forward to working closely with our new partners PROLANE to provide an additional layer of support to our customers in the region.”

GB Labs Unify Hub is a storage management platform designed for today’s dynamically shifting media market. It manages storage – on site or in the cloud from GB Labs or from other vendors – to provide a working environment which is simple and fast. The system provides the tools for maximum productivity from production and post production artists.

Unify Hub offers a flexible and straightforward way to implement remote and cloud-based workspaces, eliminating the need to provide direct access to cloud resources. Instead, this solution connects to the cloud, making the data visible to staff on-premise who need access to that data on the local network, very much like a traditional network share. Unify Hub presents users with an easy to use, familiar way to access data without dealing with the complication of data retrieval – the system takes care of the complicated processes behind the scenes.

Unify Hub applies intelligence to combine on premise and cloud storage, empowering remote production while maintaining data integrity and security to manage storage effectively and efficiently – on site or in the cloud. The system integrates seamlessly with GB Labs’s own storage solutions as well as those from third-party vendors, providing the tools for maximum productivity from production and post production artists and creating an environment for high-efficiency collaborative and remote working.

Maroon Khalil, Managing Director of PROLANE said, “Content producers and broadcasters in the MENA market need to have robust reliable storage that supports flexible and collaborative ways of working without adding complexity to their infrastructure and workflows – in three words: ‘REAL MEDIA STORAGE’. This is what GB Labs offers and we are delighted to be working with them to bring intelligent, futureproof storage solutions to our customers in the region.”

Visitors to CABSAT 2021 will learn how GB Labs’ SPACE and FastNAS storage platforms are designed to deliver easily scalable capacity and performance, with minimal downtime. These systems provide content creation teams with collaborative access to assets for increased productivity and creative freedom whilst being easy to install, configure, maintain, and upgrade. GB Labs will also explain how it can ensure true Disaster Recovery for businesses through Cloak DR which combines two storage servers for continuous resilience and uninterrupted high-performance data access.
