Archive to LTO from Canto Cumulus

Cumulus by Canto is a modern, flexible and powerful Media Asset Management System. Its browser-based interface offers access to assets from any computer, and there are apps for Mac and PC desktop, iOS and other mobile devices too. The sophisticated metadata technology supports all common standards and captures all kinds of metadata.

It can be used for file organization, visualization or workflow automation. Version control lets you keep track of all file changes. The comprehensive rights management based on roles and permissions makes sure that your content is only accessible to those who should see it.

Archiware P5 Archive perfectly complements Cumulus by migrating unused files to a disk or tape Archive. This process helps you save valuable online storage space and adds an extra layer of security, as archived material can be cloned and stored off-site. The most cost-effective and dependable storage media for an Archive is LTO tape, which has a 30 year certified life span and the lowest cost per TB of any storage solution on the market. Archiware P5 Archive is compatible with LTO drives and libraries from all major manufacturers. Archiware P5 and Cumulus are fully integrated through the P5 Integration by Torino, which allows users to archive or restore material directly from the Cumulus user interface.
