Cache-A Corporation, a company that develops archive solutions targeting the digital film and professional video industry, takes archive appliances to the next level with a new library option. Any new or existing Pro-Cache archive appliance platform can be upgraded to control robotic libraries. This convenient and easy to deploy library option automates cartridge loading for archiving, restoring and cartridge spanning when archiving large projects. At the same time, the drive in the Pro-Cache remains available for accessing content on shelf-stored cartridges while simultaneously archiving to the library.
Cache-A’s automated library option for Pro-Cache5 and Pro-Cache4 provides users with a storage capacity of 36TB for Pro-Cache5 and 19TB for Pro-Cache4 while still managing virtually unlimited storage of shelf-stored cartridges.
The Pro-Cache Platform: Based on the upgradeable and expandable Pro-Cache platform, both the LTO-5 based Pro-Cache5 and LTO-4 based Pro-Cache4 network-attached archive appliances are easy to install and use. Operating system-independent, they can be deployed into Windows, MacOS and Unix environments to provide direct access to archived data from any platform with simultaneous multi-user access and volume sharing.
Both the rack-mountable Pro-Cache5 and Pro-Cache4 offer an internal 4TB of RAID configurable as either striped for maximum speed (RAID 0) or for data redundancy with mirrored reliability (RAID 1). With additional ExpressCard and eSATA connections, the Pro-Cache platform is ideal for the fast archiving of direct connected storage. It also offers SAS connections for high-speed mounts and expansion as well as a sturdy three rack unit (3RU)/half rack chassis for industrial compatibility.
