Cache-A Corporation’s new high-performance server, Power-Cache, making its world debut at IBC 2011, combines appliance functionality with more disk speed and better throughput. Power-Cache provides faster archive and retrieval transfers as well as greater flexibility for staging content, making duplicate tape copies and working with Cache-A Library units. A high-performance blend of LTO-5 tape drives, RAID and 10GbE technologies, the compact one rack-unit Power-Cache can control up to four LTO-5 drives with up to two concurrently at full speed. Library24 and Library48 options and single or double stand-alone racked tape drives can be controlled from Power-Cache in any combination.
To simplify the archiving of large projects, the Pro-Cache Library24 and Library 48 work with the Power-Cache or Pro-Cache5 to automate archival workflows and provide the ultimate in system flexibility. Cache-A’s Library24 option can accommodate up to two internal tape drives and up to four tape drives on the Library48 option when driven from the new Power-Cache model. Power-Cache also offers an RDX transport and a 2.5” raw disk drive slot as optional removable media interfaces.
Like the company’s flagship product, Pro-Cache5, and the new quiet, desktop Prime-Cache5, Power-Cache includes LTFS (Linear Tape Film System) capability. This new format enables users to interchange content across different operating systems, software applications and physical locations. This provides application independence, transportability and protection from obsolescence.
