Cache-A Announce Integration of Archive Appliances with Leading SAN & NAS Solutions.

Digital media professionals can now pull data directly from Archion, Facilis, Storage Network Solutions and StorNext systems.

Once again responding to customer requests to simplify their workflow while ensuring the safest, most reliable and cost-effective solution to content archiving, access and interchange, Cache-A Corporation has announced that its line of archive appliances is now integrated with storage systems from four of the industry’s leading manufacturers. These include the network-attached storage (NAS) solutions from Archion and the storage area network (SAN) solutions from Facilis, Storage Network Solutions and StorNext.

Cache-A recently featured all of its products that integrate with these NAS/SAN solutions — the award-winning Pro-Cache5, the high-performance Power-Cache and the quiet, desktop Prime-Cache5 — at the National Association of Broadcasters Convention (NAB 2012) in Las Vegas, NV, USA.

“Cache-A remains fully committed and focused on our ‘Archiving Made Easy’ approach to improving archiving for today’s digital media professionals,” said Mark Ostlund, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Cache-A. “This announcement underscores our commitment to not only introducing new products like Power-Cache and embracing new formats like LTFS, but also working closely with other industry leaders to enhance digital workflows.”


The SAN/NAS integration enables Cache-A archive appliances to mount directly to those storage platforms and allows end users to pull data directly from those storage platforms. Previously, a client was needed to see both the Cache-A device and the SAN/NAS. Now, by eliminating the need to tie up another client, faster data transfers are possible, particularly because of GigE, rather than Fibre Channel, connectivity.
In addition to SAN/NAS integration Cache-A have also announced the release of their new Version 2.1 software for the entire Archive Appliance product line.
