The Abekas real-time processing hardware in Kiva is designed and built to be completely rock-solid. The Kiva server platform is also designed and built to continue functioning even in the face of electro-mechanical failures suffered by most computer hardware.
The main chassis cooling fans in Kiva are redundant and are hot-swappable, as are the main power supplies. The Kiva ‘SSD media storage’ option provides RAID-5 parity and will protect against a single SSD media drive failure. The Kiva ‘HDD media storage’ option features RAID-6 parity, which protects against two simultaneous media drive failures. These redundant media drives are also hot-swappable and feature automatic background data rebuilding, ensuring your live production continues without interruption or loss of any operational functionality.
