Optical Disk Archival (ODA Gateway) : Supports single drive and Petasite Libraries
ODA is the high capacity, future-proofed media storage, on-site backup solution from Sony. Quicker than tape and more reliable than hard drives, Optical Disc Archive offers super-fast random access to content. With 100-year rated media life and no special storage requirements, ODA makes a strong case for archival. QuickEdge Asset management along with Gravity Deep Archive has been deployed with petasite ODA libraries. More details can be found at the following link QuickEdge Sony ODA integration Brief
CLOUD GATEWAY : Supports Amazon & Google Cloud Services
Limitless! when it comes to scalability and reliability there is no match for Cloud storage. Gravity Deep is strongly integrated with industry leading cloud leading cloud platforms: Amazon Web Services(AWS) and Google Cloud.
The following storage options are possible
- Complete Cloud: Application and Storage both reside on cloud
- Hybrid: In-premises application and storage + cloud backup
- Cloud as DR – In-premises application and archival to cloud
ALTO GATEWAY : Supports DiskArchive ALTO storage
Disk Archive ALTO is an offline, cold storage archive – a secure and convenient alternative to data tape, optical disk, and cloud for Petabyte sized volumes of valuable media assets.ALTO uses data file replication to create multiple nonsegmented replicas of your files on removable media. ALTO systems can be distributed between your premises and other geographically separated locations.
Gravity Deep uses ALTO API for native integration which enables instant integration with all models of ALTO series. Hybrid workflows involving ALTo and other storage mediums can be created using an intuitive drag and drag interface.
- Advanced data caching techniques keep frequently used data in faster storage mediums
- Complete control on performance with user definable task priority levels
- Frame based tagging: Tag key frames of the media for faster search
- Detailed Audit trail and System performance reports
- User specific interface layouts can be saved for customized user experience
- Soft lock option to prevent accidental reuse of important Tapes
- Open architecture with web based API for third party integration
