OWC has acquired LumaForge. LumaForge is the maker of Jellyfish shared storage solutions that are used by content creators, editors, colorists, graphic artists, and sound mixers.
The LumaForge Jellyfish product family consists of Jellyfish Mobile, Jellyfish Tower, and Jellyfish Rack. Jellyfish Mobile was designed to work with teams of four to six editors who are working with 4K media on the road or at the office. Jellyfish Tower features the same plug-and-play powers of the Mobile version, but it allows 6+ editors to be working with 4K and higher resolution footage. At the top of the tree is Jellyfish Rack which is the preferred solution for ultra-high-bandwidth connectivity (25GbE/50GbE) and can merge into the most complex enterprise network environments. All existing customers will be receiving direct communication regarding their support and upgrade paths within the coming weeks from OWC.
“I am excited to welcome the amazing LumaForge team and solutions into the OWC Family. This acquisition both strengthens our enterprise/server storage capabilities and enables an even broader lineup of solutions to serve the needs of video, photography, and music professionals with some really exceptional new offerings. Jellyfish and LumaForge customers will continue receiving the support and development, while this trusted technology will flourish and have a whole new level of support and engagement within the OWC family.”Larry O’Connor, OWC Founder & CEO
The Jellyfish product line up should fit in very well with OWC and it will be interesting to see how it advances moving forward.
