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.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder.
