ASG Software Solutions Unveils Updates to ASG-Digital Archive for Media Industry at NAB

ASG Software Solutions today announced new updates to its flagship archiving solution ASG-Digital Archive (ADA), including instant ingest of linear tape file system (LTFS) media for improved storage and organization of data, archiving to Amazon S3 and EMC Atmos for more efficient cloud storage, and integration with Primestream FORK 4.6 for more seamless media asset management.

Instant LTFS Media Ingest – Instant ingest of LTFS media to the archive enables customers to simply add LTFS media provided by subcontractors or partners to their central archive powered by ASG-Digital Archive in just two clicks. The first adds the tape media to the tape library and the second instructs ADA to scan the LTFS media content for free storage space and add the files to the archive database. This saves users a lot of time and effort by eliminating the need to extract tape content to disk just to archive it to tape again, resulting in significantly improved storage and organization of data and metadata.

Cloud-Based Archiving – With growing requests from small and large post-production companies to archive part of their data to the cloud, ASG has upgraded its integration with EMC Atmos for medium and large companies looking to implement private cloud storage. And, to further fulfill data archiving needs in the cloud, ASG has also added support for Amazon S3 cloud storage (via the S3 REST API) for small and medium volumes. With this integration, ADA is able to provide several complementary scenarios for disaster recovery in the cloud, making it an extremely accessible solution for archive repositories.

Media Asset Management – To achieve more seamless media asset management, ASG has integrated ASG-Digital Archive with the latest version of Primestream’s flagship suite FORK Production. The new version of the ADA plugin for FORK leverages new capability provided by FORK Drones© to offer more intimate and scalable integration between the two solutions to achieve a more complete, automated management framework for media companies.

“As the media industry continues to evolve, more and more companies are realizing the importance of having a secure archiving solution for their content and files,” said Armel Bilé, ASG-Digital Archive product manager. “We are providing state-of-the-art software that can satisfy everything from tape to cloud archiving requirements – and, it is our goal to ensure that we offer the necessary integrations and technologies to suit their needs. These three updates show our commitment to delivering the most valuable solution.”

About ASG-Digital Archive
High Performance File Archiving Software for Large Data Volumes

ASG-Digital Archive (ADA) is a software archiving solution that can move and preserve massive volume of business data. As a very robust and highly scalable archiving platform, it integrates with existing storage solutions ranging from shared disk and NAS to tape and all the way to object storage and private or public cloud, so customers can easily combine their existing storage technology with the latest storage trends.

As an Open Archive solution, ADA preserves digital assets with their associated business metadata in open formats on disk (with the whole tree structure if needed) or on tape (PAX or LTFS) which guarantees the preservation of data over time. ADA offers multiple and complementary modes for integrating the archiving with new or existing business workflows:

  • Simple user interface when archiving is done via a simple drag and drop,
  • Native integration with state of the art Media & Entertainment applications (Fork, CatDV, Interplay, Level Beyond, EVS,...) where the user can protect his work at the end of the day
  • Automatic and scheduled archiving policies protecting newly ingested data

ADA is the perfect match for volume intensive environments such as media post-production, science and research providing them with the archive solution that dramatically improves the scope and economics of their storage, while combining flexibility, robustness and high scalability.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...

He will examine three use cases: IT operations, business intelligence, and security and compliance. This is a hands-on session that will require participants to bring their own laptops, and we will provide the rest.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
