The Metropolis 3800 Server models take efficient
data access one step further, exceeding data access over
5.4Gbit/sec ideal for most Server applications such as Aerospace, Animation , Audio/Video, Medical Imaging, Mobile equipment. It's ideal for mobile vehicle, containing all in one rugged and portable design, in 19" rack mount or a tower with lowest noise level in its class of family that doesn't require a major computer room for cooling.

and technical environments, as well as for VTR, 3D Design,
Film Colorist, Animation and Visualization applications.
The unique feature of the Metropolis 3800 is the internal 4Gbit
Fiber Storage that allows you to instantaneously share your content
and have your project available to everyone on the SAN Fiber
network, at speeds that are usually only available on very
high end fiber RAID products, but are a standard part of
the GVS 3800 product. The benefit of having the internal
4Gbit Fiber is that you can configure your Metropolis as an
meta data controller and run GVSAN in conjunction with multiple volume support native to your shared storage.
