LBCI Adds Etere Archive System02 March 2023
Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation International (LBCI) has selected Etere to upgrade its archive system. It is the LBCI's second installation of Etere and a renewal of its trust in Etere.
Earlier this year, the Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation International (LBCI) chose Etere as its preferred Channel-in-a-Box. After the roll-out of a successful project, LBCI is back with another installation of Etere, this time to manage its archive.
The project includes the following modules:
Etere HSM manages all archives in a single environment. It supports proprietary and industry file systems, including Linear Tape-Open (LTO) storage, Sony Optical Disc Archive (ODA) storage, Disk Archive, Object Storage, and Cloud Storage.
The integrated workflow orchestration helps automate multi-vendor and multiformat file transformations across unlimited storage tiers in a hybrid cloud environment.
In addition, Etere HSM also streamlines metadata interchange between third-party systems. Etere HSM effectively manages an archive of critical data on the performance storage and a backup copy on the secure storage. A disaster recovery copy can also be stored offsite for physical redundancy and to ensure system resilience.
Not only that, Etere HSM uses Windows drivers to interface with hardware; it is compatible with any windows-compatible library or tape drive.
