Cache-A Corporation Key Developments

Cache-A Corporation to Showcase the Latest Innovations in LTO-Tape Archiving at 2014 HPA Tech Retreat

Cache-A Corporation will showcase the latest innovations in LTO-tape archiving that support enhanced productivity and deliver greater levels of asset protection, at the 2014 HPA Tech Retreat, Feb. 17-21, Indian Wells, CA (www.hpaonline.com). Highlights include: enhanced interchange and delivery capabilities; Pro-Cache610, a turbo-charged version of the company's flagship Pro-Cache6 LTO-6 archive appliance; and Simul-Copy(TM), Cache-A's fast LTO-tape duplication and verification capability. Cache-A is focusing on efficient "hub and spoke" delivery models, where remote content creators are providing delivery to larger central data repositories. Based on collaborative work with Discovery Channel, Cache-A appliances can now format LTFS tapes to meet all of Discovery's delivery specifications. This includes automatically placing metadata.xml files in the index partition and automatically building MD5 checksum files for graphics, audio and program content. The metadata file can be easily restored later, slashing access time for that information. Custom policies allow users to specify their own files for this special treatment.

Cache-A and axle Video Join Forces to Deliver Affordable Digital Archiving

Cache-A and axle Video have announced an integrated solution combining media asset management for professional video and digital media workflows. The end-to-end solution leverages Cache-A's renowned LTO-4, 5, and 6 archive appliances and axle Video's highly-regarded media management software and appliances. Details of the integration will be presented at IBC 2013, Hall7, at the Cache-A (7.A04) and axle (7.D07) stands. The new, browser-based axle Video/Cache-A solution automatically catalogs and tracks media content over its lifecycle. Content can be quickly annotated with customizable metadata fields, then archived to, and quickly retrieved from, a network-attached Cache-A LTO-tape appliance, with a storage capacity in the hundreds of Terabytes. The solution leverages Cache-A's industry-leading support for LTFS LTO storage together with axle's user-friendly front-end interface. It is notable for its simplicity of installation, ease-of-use, and compatibility with NAS/SAN storage and operating systems.

Cache-A Turbo-Charges Pro-Cache6 Archive Appliance

Cache-A Corporation announced Pro-Cache610, a new, turbo-charged version of its Pro-Cache6 LTO-6 archive appliance. The high-performance Pro-Cache610 features 10-gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) I/O capability, significantly boosting the speed and power of network archiving operations. Cache-A has made this new development in direct response to the advent of low-cost, 10GbE infrastructure technology, and the corresponding media and entertainment industry demand to take advantage of the extra productivity 10GbE delivers. Cache-A will debut Pro-Cache610, along with its full LTO-6 product range, and brand new Simul-Copy(TM) LTO-tape duplication feature, during IBC 2013, Amsterdam, at its stand Hall 7.A04. Cache-A's archiving appliances can manage 100's of Terabytes of data, written using the industry-standard tar format, or LTFS (Linear Tape File System) capability. Versatile I/O connectivity options facilitate their deployment in on-set carts, with SAN/NAS systems in post and robotic libraries. With Cache-A, users can easily interchange content across different platforms, software applications and physical locations, as well as deliver content to their clients. Pro-Cache610 is based on Cache-A's Pro-Cache6 appliance, and features dual RJ-45 connections for 10Gb Ethernet I/O, allowing high-speed archiving at over 150MB/s. It also has eSATA ports for fast access to direct attached storage, and a SAS connection allowing seamless connectivity to Cache-A LTO-6 library or sidecar expansion units, as well as third-party robotic systems. Pro-Cache610 comes with 6TB internal HDD RAID 0 or RAID 1 disk-cache storage, while LTO-6 cartridges can hold up to 2.5TB of data natively. It is rack-mountable in a central machine room, but can also be easily deployed in on-set cart systems, and is particularly well-suited to archiving operations where massive amounts of data are generated every day.
