Munich, Germany/San Jose, CA, Sept. 2017 â€“ G-Technologyâ€™s G-RACK 12 high-performance NAS solution provides centralized, high-performance NAS geared towards content-demanding workflows. It is designed to work as a high-capacity storage resource for popular Media Asset Management (MAM) and Digital Asset Management (DAM) applications running on Windows or macOS servers. Archiwareâ€™s P5 Software Suite offers platform-agnostic data management software for archiving, backup and cloning of data. The browser-based software comprises four modules, which use different methods to secure and restore data: P5 Synchronize, P5 Backup, P5 Backup2Go and P5 Archive.
â€œA G-RACK high-performance NAS solution is considerably empowered by the embedded Archiware P5, so that data management becomes extremely easyâ€, observes Dr. Marc Batschkus, Archiwareâ€™s Business Development Manager. â€œOnly an automatic Backup really protects your data. P5 Backup solves this challenge and offers maximum flexibility with disk, tape and cloud storage as target. Long-term protection of assets needs an archive to centralize, reference, re-use and monetize media. With customizable metadata fields, thumbnails and proxies, P5 Archive gives you insight and access at any time from your browser.â€
Archiware P5 is installed on G-RACK 12 as an App without external server involvement. The P5 modules run on Mac, Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris and Synology. The G-RACK 12 high-performance NAS solution employs its own customized operating system software (G-NASâ„¢ OS), incorporating the latest stable Linux kernel and powerful BTRFs file system.
â€œG-NAS OS capabilities to run native applications on the G-RACK 12 high-performance NAS solution significantly transforms the NAS storage device into a dedicated workflow appliance,â€ said Mike Williams, vice president, advanced technologies/G-Technology, Client Solutions Group, Western Digital. â€œThe integration of G-RACK 12 and P5 allows for a more efficient and effective backup and restore solution with a directly connected LTO library. This significantly reduces backup windows and network traffic.â€
The G-RACK 12 high-performance NAS solution and P5 Software Suite integration was presented at the IBC Show 2017.
