In modern media workflows, unstructured data is growing quickly and is a valuable and important asset. Protecting this data poses challenges due to time pressure and limited IT budgets. Performance is another concern, since time windows for backup might be limited. Data needs to be available for quick restore if something goes wrong. Files also need to be protected from breaches and hardware failures. 

Backup storage scalability and automatic data protection features are important requirements. Viking Enterprise Solutions Cloud Native Obsidian (CNO) is an on-premises object storage solution with a cloud native architecture. Together with Archiware P5, it provides a comprehensive backup and archive solution and makes re-use, monetisation and referencing of existing assets easy.
