GB Labs Delivers Max Security For Productions With Archiware

News Image
GB Labs and Archiware have joined forces to deliver maximum security for ongoing and completed productions.

Integration has been introduced between the GB Labs storage platforms and the Archiware P5 data management solution, allowing customers to have the flexibility to choose from different storage devices for backup and archive.

GB Labs storage platforms, such as SPACE, Echo and FastNAS, allow content creation teams to collaborate on files and projects for increased productivity and creative freedom. These products give Mac, Linux and Windows users simultaneous access to projects using 1 to 100Gb network connections. They are all designed from the ground up to be easy to install, maintain and upgrade, and the system allows easy configuration of access rights, storage quotas and permitted bandwidth for each user. Moving data between tiers of GB Labs units is optimised by the CORE OS intelligence to increase workflow efficiency.

With P5 now able to run natively on GB Labs devices, the latest CORE.4 OS allows users to configure the P5 client via the integrations tab to access files on GB Labs storage products for backup and archive. The integration provides an efficient way to protect production and provide business continuity. The P5 platform offers enormous flexibility in configuration, setup, storage and policies. The synergy between the two systems also means production is protected in multiple ways.

P5 Backup protects ongoing production against accidental deletion, file corruption and any other mishaps. The scheduled automatic Backup is the best way to keep files safe. The optimised restore process hands any file back identically to continue with production (including xattributes, ACLS, etc.). P5 Backup works with disk, tape and cloud storage to provide maximum flexibility and fulfil any requirements. Encryption is available for both transfer and storage.

P5 Archive migrates finished projects and their assets to disk, tape or cloud to preserve them for the long-term. Finding files at a later date is easy with its MAM-like features, customisable metadata fields, thumbnails for still images and proxy clips for videos. Combined search and visual browsing functionality help to locate files when they are needed for re-use, reference and monetisation. Full LTFS integration (ISO/IEC) provides import, export and archiving on LTFS tapes and the system makes it easy to catalogue and include existing third- party LTFS tapes into the P5 Archive.

Howard Twine, Chief Product Officer for GB Labs, said: "We are delighted to bring this latest CORE OS update to our users allowing them to easily configure the Archiware P5 client so that it can access files for either backup or archive (or both). This allows our customers the flexibility to choose different storage devices for backup or archive like LTO tape from other vendors offering a 'best of breed' approach."

Dr. Marc Batshkus, Director Marketing and Business Development at Archiware, confirmed: "We are proud to have GB Labs as integration partner for P5. Our shared strength, like the focus on customer experience, help to offer solutions that are powerful, cost-effective and easy to use. Especially in media production, the accessibility of any solution is key to improving productivity."

Both P5 Backup and P5 Archive support LTO tape drives and tape libraries from all vendors, ensuring the highest durability and shelf life of decades and the lowest TCO of all professional storage media starting from 10€/USD/GBP per TB. When using multiple drives, throughput can grow (and almost multiply) with each drive added though P5's drive parallelisation feature. For maximum security and offsite storage P5 offers tape cloning to create two identical tape sets with two LTO drives.
