Enterprise storage made ‘Apple Easy’
The Apple creative market is fueled by innovation. Apple has consistently delivered easy to use, elegant solutions for creative individuals and workgroups.
Today more than ever, the Apple creative user can enjoy an incredible level of productivity in a workgroup environment. Whether based on an Apple Xserve or MacPro, a Mac OS X server makes file sharing fast and easy.
From small print projects to complex photographic engagements, website creation and management, publishing, video or audio production, Active Storage understands the needs of professional Apple users.
At Active Storage, our key employees aren’t just Apple fans or users—they’re former high-level Apple employees.
“Active Storage knows a thing or two about the Mac market. The company’s founder, Alex Grossman, was an executive at Apple, responsible for the development of Apple’s server and storage products.”
In these types of creative environments the value of user’s data is paramount.
Keeping that data safe while delivering the speed and performance needed to get the job done is not an either/or proposition. Rather—security and speed are of equal importance, and Active Storage provides cost-effective solutions that deliver on both accounts.
Active Storage RAID systems were designed to provide the highest level of performance and protection to Apple workgroups possible.
Our systems, while affordable, power some of the world’s most cutting-edge Apple creative studios and 24/7 broadcast environments.
“Many vendors are good with designing niche products for niche solutions.
Active Storage has managed to design leading-edge solutions for multiple workflows. The marriage of state-of-the-art hardware to amazing management tools has offered users the opportunity to get the best of both worlds—performance and elegance.”

Apple workgroups are created for easy day-to-day management, so why are most RAID storage solutions so difficult? Active Storage designed our ‘Apple Easy’ native Mac OS X management tools to provide fast, at-a-glance views of your storage system and describe status in a highly intuitive manner. Our Storage Remote Control product even includes an iPhone App, to give you anywhere, anytime monitoring. You can even call or email tech support right from the iPhone App if a warning or problem arises.
“One of our biggest concerns with any Xsan deployment is support. Active Storage doesn’t care if it’s you or the equipment. They just help.”
