P5 Archive helps to move data to cost-effective tape media. In the process, expensive server storage can be reclaimed while backup times are reduced. By relieving your network of traffic, you’ll get a better working experience and increased productivity.
As users requirements grow and change, P5’s modular design allows for optimal scaling to fit your specific needs. There are no limits on possible growth: you can easily add further Archiware products, hardware or media to expand your setup. P5 Archive can be save data on disk and tape, while you can also use the same hardware to operate P5 Backup.
P5 Archive lets you move or migrate data offline to disk and tape. You can monitor files, folders and the directory structure to archive files automatically. Fine-grained filtering can be applied to select or exclude files based on name, size, date etc. Data can be cloned to a second tape for offsite storage. Encryption options protect data against non-authorized access both during the transfer and on the media itself.
Bare bones asset management
P5’s archiving software can function as a bare bones asset management system, for example to manage video archives. Features include extendable metadata fields and Quicktime previews for effective search and retrieval. Search file types like images and videos by visual previews.
Archive provides configurable login areas for restricted or direct access to (selected) parts of the archive to browse, search and restore files.
3rd party integrations
P5’s scriptable command line interface offers unlimited options for 3rd party integrations. The following options are already available: Final Cut Server, Canto Cumulus, CatDV, CANTEMO Portal™, Xinet, Helios.
LTFS Export Option
For data transport files from the Archive can be exported on LTFS formatted tapes. These tapes can be read with free drivers from drive vendors as well as with Archiware’s own tool MediaLTFS (for Mac OS X).
As a new feature data can now be archived in incremental mode. This way only new and changed files will be archived effectively minimizing the growth of the Archive.
