16 bay vs 24 Bay determines 2 things
Generally, in a shared environment a fully loaded 24 bay will provide about 25% more sustained video performance. In addition to increased performance, the 24 bay will provide 50% more storage capacity. For full specs click below.

Processors have no noticeable impact on video performance.
The common areas processors will impact Platform users are:
Other area’s more processing cores will help are include:
Full media management for smaller teams.
The MediaHub boasts 10GbE & Thudnerbolt 3.0 to connect users, storage, cloud & LTO for a complete workflow.
To make it even more enticing every MediaHub is bundled with the following software modules.
This bundle includes the following options
This bundle includes the following options
Index + Search + Metadata
Online Storage / Offline Storage / Cloud / LTO
This option allows your server to index all connected storage & media to create a single searchable database of all of your digital assets. Users can rely on file & folder names for searches, or can add custom metadata fields.
This is fundamental in bridging the gap between online and offline files; allowing users to find files at any time from connect storage, removed storage, cloud or LTO.
This license enables the ability to send files directly to and restore files from LTO tapes, supporting both TAR & LTFS formats. This is ideal for backup, disaster recovery & archiving digital media. This is software only and requires LTO hardware.
This license enables the ability to send files directly to and restore files from Cloud storage. This is ideal for backup, disaster recovery & archiving digital media. This is software only and requires a subscription with a Cloud storage provider.
This option enables most common professional digital video file formats to be transcoded to a low-resolution proxy file for video preview of media regardless of media availability.
Allowing you to view all video files at any time from connect storage, removed storage, cloud or LTO.
This option allows you to transcode most professional file formats to a proxy or mezzanine codec for project prep or delivery. When using the transcode module, transcoding has zero impact on your local workstation, allowing for full performance of your workstation while transcoding media files.
This option allows you to offload renders from your local workstation(s) to the Platform server. This can be done with After Effects or Cinema 4D. A minimum of 64GB of RAM is recommended when using this option. Please note, this also requires all fonts/effects be installed on the Platform server and could require additional licensing.

Recommended for installations with >1 million files in the database. This will remove all database limits and increase search response time and results.
This option is ideal for organizations that want to connect and manage Platform users as part of their existing domain.
This option is ideal for large organizations connecting to an active directory domain. Allowing users to be managed not only individually but based on groups.
This option is required for managing multiple Platform servers from a single login with a single database. In these multi-node environments, it is critical to have at least 1 server with a minimum of 16 processing cores.
This is not required when adding an expansion chassis to an existing server.
This hardware option includes the hardware and set up of a NVIDIA P4000 GPU. This is highly recommended for the Proxy Preview module, as it allows all proxy generation to be offloaded to the GPU, allowing all CPU resources to be allocated to indexing and searching.
This hardware is recommended to have as a critical spare component for your Platform server to be up and running at all times. It’s rare that RAID controllers fail, but when they do, you cannot access any media until it is replaced. Having a spare RAID can be the difference of 15 min of downtime or a full day of downtime in the event of a hardware failure.
This is also required for servers with more than 1 expansion chassis and can be used to connect 2 additional expansion chassis.
This is a single external LTO tape drive, a PCIe card to connect it to your Platform server and a cable. When combined with the LTO software module you have everything you need for using the LTO features of Platform.
This is a 24 Bay LTO Library, with a single LTO tape drive, a PCIe card to connect it to your Platform server and a cable. When combined with the LTO software module you have everything you need for using the LTO features of Platform.
This hardware includes a 3U x 16 Bay Chassis and a cable to connect to a Platform Server. Please note, any Platform server can support up to 3 Expansion chassis, however, if you have more than 1 expansion you will need to add an additional RAID controller.
