Failover made easy

Shared production storage is time critical. Therefore it needs to be kept available all the time. Archiware‘s P5 Synchronize clones data to the secondary storage, creating a failover solution on the secondary storage.
In case of emergency, switching over takes only minutes before all data is again available to continue production.

Additionally, file versions and snapshots can be kept. By using FSEvents copying, changed files can start immediately without scanning the storage. This saves countless hours. Sync intervals can be kept short to reach an even higher level of data security.

Archive to LTO Tape

Save space by moving files to the Archive that are no longer needed for production. This is the central repository for all completed productions. Browse and search the Archive catalog in any web browser.

Add metadata for description. Take advantage of the professional long-term security of LTO Tape that is used by banks and large corporations world wide. Migrate data offline to disk, tape or cloud for added security.

Online Editing & Offline Archiving

The ExaSAN LTO is a unique product combining high-performance RAID storage for production with a built-in LTO drive. This way, organizing production storage as well as Backup to Tape and Archive to Tape are easier than ever. The P5 Desktop LTO Edition is Archiware’s archive and backup license for single LTO drives to protect files and keep them for the long-term. 

Connected either via PCIe or the Accusys C2M converter from Thunderbolt 3, every Mac or PC can profit from this solution. The reduced complexity of the all-in-one device minimises technical risks and cost while making LTO storage easily available.

Portable Video Production Storage and Portable Archive

The Accusys Gamma Carry is a portable Thunderbolt 3 storage designed for DIT and post-production. As the world’s smallest 3.5” 8-bay RAID system, it can easily be taken anywhere by its handle bar. The latest Thunderbolt 3 technology allows for a transfer speed up to 2600 MB/s transfer speeds - enough to handle and expedite large file workflows.

Combined with Archiware P5 and mLogic mTape, the Accusys Gamma Carry RAID offers great performance and forms a complete setup, including Backup and long-term Archive. Production, as well as post-production, become more flexible and mobile.
