Televisión Canaria Migrates Archive To An LTO All-Disk Storage System

News Image
Televisión Canaria has migrated its entire archive from LTO tape to an ALTO all-disk storage system from Disk Archive Corporation.

Initially configured with 1600TB of storage, the ALTO replaces Televisión Canaria’s previous archive installation based on a Robotic Tape Library and a third-party Archive Management system.

Two ALTO-II systems with four EX-60 expansion chassis and a dual ALTO Filer, the system’s Virtual File System interface were provided by Datos Media Technologies SA to Televisión Canarias for the new installation based at the Videoreport Canarias headquarters. The ALTO storage is integrated with the broadcaster’s traffic, playout and newsroom systems through an in-house developed Media Management system. Clips are copied and transcoded using software developed by Videoreport Canarias, and each subsystem of the MAM exchanges material from the ALTO in the required format. Access to the audiovisual files is via a network folder accessed from any point in the network, making it easy for the broadcaster to implement open-ended future developments.

ALTO-II is a scalable, flexible and highly secure alternative to a Data Tape Library for media storage, offering faster access for many more users with a low capital outlay and very low total cost of ownership. ALTO takes advantage of recent developments in disk drive technology and new strategies for data protection to offer unique performance and economic benefits for applications including media acquisition, production and distribution, archives and content libraries.
