Munich, Germany

With more content being produced due to high-resolution formats and digital recording, a Media Asset Management system is indispensable for many media companies. To save valuable online storage space, material that is no longer needed for production should be moved offline to a tape Archive and kept safe for future use.

Archiware P5 Archive is a long-term storage solution. This professional archiving software moves data offline to disk and tape. P5 can be setup within minutes, and works cross platform on Mac, Linux, Windows and Solaris. You can restore data on any platform since P5 stores it in a platform-neutral format.

With the FCSvr to P5 Archive App by moosystems a bridge is created between Cantemo Portal™ and Archiware P5 Archive to enable Archiving/Restoring directly from the Cantemo Portal interface.

Restore P5

Using the CP Archive App, users can archive and restore single items as well as collections of items. Archiving and Restoring processes can be triggered either manually from the Cantemo Portal Web interface or automatically after a configurable number of days after cataloguing an item. The information is transferred to Archiware P5 Archive, which in turn communicates with the LTO hardware.

LTO tape is used by corporations, banks and insurance companies worldwide for long-term data storage. P5 Archive supports LTO drives and libraries from virtually any manufacturer such as SpectraLogic, Tandberg, IBM, Quantum and others, making it the ideal solution in any storage environment. The feature set of P5 Archive also includes a cloning option, creating the maximum level of security as one set of tapes can be stored off-site. The P5 parallelization feature provides scalability regarding performance and number of archive/restore jobs running simultaneously.

Archiware is based in Munich, Germany, and privately held, Archiware is a manufacturer of data management software for backup, synchronization and archiving. Archiware P5 software is platform independent and aimed primarily at media and production companies. The latest product line includes P5 Synchronize, P5 Backup, P5 Back2Go and P5 Archive.
