Server room power, in a cool and silent tower.
Take the performance of a rack-mounted server and remove the server room, noisy fans, IT department, tens of thousands of dollars, and the A/C bill that comes with traditional shared storage. And you have the Jellyfish Tower. The first of its kind, our scalable tower lives quietly under your desk and can be running your work group within an hour of receiving it.
You Customize, We Configure
Every Jellyfish is built to meet your exact specifications. Our team of workflow experts can help integrate a Jellyfish into your existing workflow, or help design a new workflow that is fast, secure, and efficient. Once we've settled on your perfect build and performed a series of demanding performance and endurance tests, our team will preconfigure your server so that it's ready to run right out of the box.
Scan. Initialize. Mount. 3 clicks to better content.
Simple to connect
The ShareClient App, included with your purchase of any Jellyfish allows your team to quickly connect to the server and get to work. Perfect for full time users as well as occasional users who need temporary access for a project.
Tuned for Performance
In addition to mounting the Jellyfish, the ShareClient App tunes your computer's network settings to achieve maximum bandwidth so your Jellyfish is blazing fast.

Search for your media using Spotlight
If you're on a Mac the Jellyfish can be browsed and searched using Spotlight. No more clicking through layers and layers of custom browsers to get to your footage and libraries. Another way the Jellyfish is designed to work the way you do.
Optimized for Video Workflow
Collaborate and create with the software of your choice.
The Jellyfish is designed for one thing and one thing only: collaborative video workflow. That means high bandwidth, low latency, and no dropped frames. Modern video workflow places demands on shared storage unlike any other industry. That's why a repurposed storage solution, one designed for anything other than video workflow will leave you disappointed and struggling to stay afloat. Your storage is either working for you, or working against you. Choose wisely.
Trusted by the very best.
Jellyfish Tower Specs
Maximum READ: 4400 MB/s
Maximum WRITE: 2000 MB/s
10GbE Speed = Between 500 - 1000 MB/s*
1GbE Speed = 100 MB/s
*10GbE speeds vary based on receiving network interface card, Thunderbolt Adapter, Network Protocol, & client machine specs. Contact us for recommendations and best practices for your workflow.
All Jellyfish servers are designed to operate without a switch. Users can connect directly to the Jellyfish for maximum performance and ease of operation. A switch can be used if desired, please contact us for recommendations and compatibility.
Jellyfish Tower servers include: (2) 10GbE / 1GbE user ports
Add additional users based on your needs:
Maximum Direct 10GbE user ports = 12
Maximum Direct 1 GbE user ports = 20
12Gb SAS Jellyfish Expansion Port = 2
Jellyfish Tower is available in 4 different sizes.
80TB = 80TB RAW / 64TB Avail. / 47TB Usable
120TB = 120TB RAW / 96TB Avail. / 70TB Usable
160TB = 160TB RAW / 128TB Avail. / 92TB Usable
200TB = 200TB RAW / 160TB Avail. / 115TB Usable
RAW = Manufacturers stated disk capacity
Avail. = Amount available after parity (Virtual RAID60)
Usable = Actual available space after accounting for server overhead, RAID parity, & 20% performance buffer.
Every Jellyfish Tower can connect up to 3 Jellyfish Mobile Expansion chassis of any capacity for up to 800TB Storage
Note: To expand existing pool, Jellyfish Expansion Chassis must be same capacity as the primary Jellyfish. If expansion capacity differs from primary capacity separate pools will be created.
Example: 80TB Primary + 80TB Expansion + 80TB Expansion = 1 Pool equal to 240TB
To add Jellyfish Expansion Chassis with different capacity than the primary Jellyfish, discrete pools will be created.
Example: 120TB Primary + 80TB Expansion + 200TB Expansion =
1 Pool 120TB
1 Pool 80TB
1 Pool 200TB
Jellyfish Tower uses a software RAID most similar to a RAID 6. With a Jellyfish Tower 4 HDD can fail without any data loss.
