Performance: In diverse multi-user content creation environments, OpenDrives solutions delivers performance that can increase production workflows by up to 10 times faster than other storage providers. While most vendors are focused on capacity, OpenDrives is focused on performance and removing the bottleneck in media workflows so teams can collaborate in real-time on 4k, 6k, and even 8k projects in a shared storage environment. Product features such as intelligent shared caching and prefetching dramatically accelerate workflows, so you can open projects in a fraction of the time.

Benefit from project sharing and locking, extensive native format support, and support for online and offline workflows.
