DAC Announces IBC 2015 Lineup

Disk Archive Corporation (DAC) has announced a number of new products it will unveil at IBC 2015, Booth 8.B38F.

On display at the show will be:

Web-Browser Based User Experience for Monitoring and Management
DAC will present an entirely new user experience for the ALTO Archive and Content Library. With the increase in popularity of distributed archives comes a requirement for distributed management and monitoring. At IBC 2015, DAC will present a new visual user interface, which will allow each of the distributed archive nodes and all of the system components to be managed from any location, down to individual disk drive level. This offers a new degree of flexibility for facility managers and administrators to see the entire system resource, at a glance from any location on any Google Chrome enabled device. Whether the Archive is in a data center, or in a hazardous or geographically inaccessible location, the new user experience allows the system to be managed and monitored from a network operations center in a secure location.

ALTO Externalizer, Shelf Storage Management for Removable Disk Drives
DAC will demonstrate a new shelf-storage management capability for ALTO. The ability to externalise storage media is a capability supported in high-end data tape library systems, but the ability to externalise individual disk drives from a petabyte-class disk storage system is unique to ALTO. DAC's machine-readable labelling facility for externalised disk drives has been developed in conjunction with ALTO Technology Partner, Squared Paper Designs.

ALTO Protect, Automated Backup Solution for Nearline Storage Systems
ALTO Protect is a new approach to disaster recovery for higher-order storage tiers. Developed in conjunction with ALTO Technology Partner, Nexus, this solution runs in the background on the ALTO Archive and during the course of the day, creates a list of new and edited files that need to be protected. The backup process can be pre-programmed to take place on a continuous basis, on-demand, or at a scheduled time when network traffic is at a minimum, to avoid inconvenience to other users. In the event of data loss, or accidental deletion, this simple solution can restore the lost files to the original file system or to an alternative target storage device. ALTO with Protect is a convenient DR solution for nearline storage or shared editing storage.

Alan Hoggarth, Managing Director, DAC, said: "At IBC 2015, we are introducing new features for ALTO which make it easier to manage multi-petabyte systems in unattended data centers and enhancements for shelf storage of externalized disk replicas, together with a DR capability for nearline storage. These developments make the simplicity, rapid access and robustness of the ALTO platform the obvious solution in a still wider range of applications."
