Munich, February 4th, 2019 – Introducing Archiware.
Keeping media safe is crucial in media production – be it raw material, final edits or the entire project. One of the safest media in the market for professional archiving is LTO tape. It delivers outstanding performance at an unmatched price per TB. But quite often, small production teams lack the technical background to work with LTO – or so they think.
Enter Archiware GmbH
Headquartered in Munich, Germany, Archiware GmbH is a privately held company with over 20 years of experience in data management software for backup, synchronization and archiving.
The product line includes:
P5 Synchronize – Replicate data to ensure high availability
P5 Backup – Back up server data to disk, tape and cloud
P5 Backup2Go – Back up desktop and laptop data to disk
P5 Archive – Move or migrate data offline to disk, tape and cloud
Archiware Pure – Innovative, simple VMware® backup
Archiware P5 Desktop Edition
The Archiware P5 Desktop Edition helps these teams take the first step towards professional archiving. It includes software licenses for the P5 Archive and P5 Backup modules for use with a single LTO tape drive. Both modules are fully featured, so P5 Archive includes the mini-MAM functionality with a browsable metadata catalogue, proxies and previews.
One Archiware customer who employs the P5 Desktop Edition in his daily video production is Director and DOP Anton Nelson (http://www.ahtohcine.com). Nelson safeguards his stunning action and outdoor footage with the help of the P5 Desktop Edition and an mLogic mTape Thunderbolt LTO tape drive.
Nelson is enthusiastic about the solution: “Moving to LTO tape and the flexible P5 Archive platform has improved my workflow and halved my storage expenditure. Now finding a file from a previous production is really easy and provides an additional revenue stream for me.” In a video testimonial available on the Archiware youtube channel, he explains the reasons behind his choice of setup and the experience he’s had with the software and hardware: https://youtu.be/qU3A1R-5UTE
