Atempo and Tiger Technology Deliver Simplified Storage Management and Archiving to Creative Professionals
Atempo, a leading provider of cross-platform data protection and archiving solutions, today announced that Atempo Digital Archive (ADA) has been certified for metaSAN, a high-speed file sharing SAN (storage area network) management application from Tiger Technology, a provider of SAN and workgroup management software solutions for creative professionals.
This certification allows joint customers with rich media files to integrate metaSAN into their existing workflow environments. Atempo Digital Archive enables end-users to archive data either manually, automatically, or through policies and applications such as Final Cut Pro, from metaSAN storage to tape libraries or other storage devices. Media assets can then be retrieved, through metadata indexing from and to metaSAN managed storage resources.
“Broadcasters, film producers and post-production facilities produce huge amounts of digital data that must be ingested, edited, distributed, archived and managed daily,” said Alex Lefterov, chief executive officer, Tiger Technology. “The seamless interoperability between metaSAN and Atempo Digital Archive offers our mutual customers a high-performance, cross-platform, file-level SAN with simplified storage management and file archiving capabilities. Together we are setting new standards for ease-of-use, flexibility and overall value.”
Atempo Digital Archive is the first archiving solution to integrate with metaSAN, and its proxyIO technology ensures it offers unbeatable performance in Windows, Linux and Mac OS environments. Atempo Digital Archive also fully supports metaLAN, the cost-effective version of Tiger Technology’s flagship metaSAN software, designed specifically to be used in conjunction with metaLAN clients.
“This certification is part of our ongoing commitment to provide customers in the creative, media and entertainment market with a sophisticated archiving solution. Customers with rich media files need an easy way to manage and protect their digital data. Atempo Digital Archive together with Tiger Technology’s metaSAN provides just that,” said Richard Heitmann, vice president, marketing at Atempo.
Atempo Time Navigator, a comprehensive server backup solution, is also compatible with metaSAN.
