XOR Universal MediaLibrary and Archiware PresStore P4 provide maximum data availability
Greenville, New Hampshire (August 28, 2012) – XOR Media (formerly SeaChange Broadcast), developer of high-performance, open, IT storage for media applications and private cloud data centers, announced its partnership with Archiware, solutions provider for storage backup, synchronization, and archiving. The partnership is based on a data mirroring solution that the companies jointly deployed in Finland’s nationwide television channel MTV3.Product integration based on Finland’s nationwide channel MTV3
Today’s age of digitalization increases the requirement for highly available big data storage. The integration of XOR and Archiware PresStore technologies provides companies a complete and redundant storage system built on the robust XOR Universal MediaLibrary (UML) storage and PresStore P4 Synchronize application. It performs automated file mirroring or synchronization between a source and destination machine.
The UMLs are connected via iSCSI, making them seem local to a P4 Synchronize system installed on a separate server. P4 Synchronize will thus manage the sync jobs without adding any addition workload to the UMLs.
In Finland’s MTV3, two UML units or nodes are mirrored using PresStore P4 Synchronize. The fully redundant storage architecture now supports a ten year old system that had previously reached its operational limit. Each of the 216TB UMLs is in itself a highly available system with redundant server heads, hot-swappable drives, and field-replaceable fans and power supplies. The system achieves maximum availability as P4 Synchronize makes cloned data immediately accessible as failover – no restore required.
Archiware develops, sells, and supports a new generation of flexible and powerful backup, synchronization, and archiving solutions.
Building on a browser based data management platform, PresStore allows archiving, backup and distribution of data. With more than 2,000 installations, PresStore is one the world’s most successful data management systems, especially in the prepress industry where it is strongly represented.
About XOR Media
“The Universal MediaLibrary since its conception has become XOR’s star offering – it provides a robust central storage system for big data requirements and media-rich workflows,” said Stephane Jauroyou, vice president for worldwide sales, XOR Media. “In a cloud setup, a high level of data security must be achieved among nodes in a UML cluster. This is why we develop and maintain an open workflow ecosystem that works well with best-in-class applications like PresStore P4.”
“In the business of data security, our objective is to offer the best possible solution that will allow companies access to their latest data with no perceived lag in case of failure,” said Marc Batschkus, business development manager, Archiware. “While P4 Synchronize is our response to this challenge, it is just as important that the storage be a reliable and capable system. XOR Media, being in this business as a group for almost two decades, provides this environment.”
XOR Media will be at booth 6.C29 in RAI Amsterdam at the IBC 2012 show from September 7 to 11. For more information, visit www.xor-media.com/IBC.
