DiskLibrary is a Highly Flexible and Cost-Effective Alternative

31 January 2018

Etere DiskLibrary features lower costs, better performance and manageability. It is an archive based on sleeping disks and users can use any archive enclosure. It is a cost-effective alternative to LTO tapes.

Etere DiskLibrary is a next-generation software solution that manages archive based on sleeping disks. It is compatible with any archive enclosure and users do not need to use a dedicated one. Recognizing that data retention and long-term archive are important elements of a broadcasting lifecycle, Etere DiskLibrary is designed to offer greater flexibility and security at a lower cost. It is a cost-efficient alternative to Linear Tape-Open (LTO) tapes. Etere DiskLibrary allows unlimited I/O while LTO access is only limited by the number of files and linear access. With current technology, cost is less than LTO for capacity up to 1 PB. In addition, Etere DiskLibrary is also easy to upgrade and maintain.

The software's integration with SQL database enables faster replications, migrations and integrations. In the event of a site-wide disaster, Etere DiskLibrary keeps your data safe. It is able to cluster multiple disk archives to create a geographically distributed archive that provides both logical and physical redundancies in the event of a system failure. Additionally, Etere DiskLibrary is a versatile solution that works well on its own or as part of a hybrid disk and tape solution.

As a company's requirements evolve and change, Etere DiskLibrary’s modular design allows optimized scaling to fit the specific needs of both single-device and multi-device archive management. It is a cost-effective solution that improves performance and enables faster file restorations when compared to tape. Users who want to restore parts of a file can manage it easily with the partial restore feature. The all-in-one solution can be used together with Etere Media Asset Management (MAM) for a centralised management. It can also be used for newsroom archive and serves as an effective storage solution for agency feeds and media content.
