By Press Release / Jan 30, 2012
EditShare, the technology leader in shared media storage and end-to-end tapeless workflow solutions, today announced the availability of a new version of EditShare Ark, the company's backup and archiving solution. The new Ark release features numerous enhancements including a new user interface that displays extensive information about Ark system activity support for additional tape loaders, and more options for configuring network interfaces to maximize performance across the EditShare tiered storage platform.
“Back up and archiving are critical in every type of production Ã¢Â€Â“ from news, sports, motion picture, and episodic TV to corporate and advertising production. Protecting your assets is essential, but accessibility is equally important,” comments Andy Liebman, founder and CEO, EditShare. “Because Ark is directly integrated into EditShare’s end-to-end tapeless workflow products, archived content can be easily searched in our Flow Media Asset Management tools, retrieved and brought back directly onto production storage. The new interface also provides real-time updates on archive performance and continuous system health monitoring. EditShare Ark ensures both the safety and accessibility of your valuable media.”
EditShare Ark V184.108.40.206 adds Quantum Superloader 3, Scalar i40 and i80 solutions, Spectra Logic Spectra T50e and PowerVault 124T Tape Autoloader to the list of supported tape libraries. The V2.1.3 update is free to existing EditShare Ark V2 customers with a valid maintenance contract.
