Cache-A Begins Shipments of Power-Cache High-Performance Archive Server-- Cache-A Customers Now Have LTO-5 Archiving Solution with 8TB RAID and 10GbE Technologies -- (December 08, 2011)
"With the enormous growth in data that digital media professionals handle every day, our customers have been asking Cache-A to develop an archive appliance that can deliver even greater archiving speed and flexibility," said Mark Ostlund, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Cache-A Corporation. "We are proud to say that day has arrived with the world debut of Power-Cache, the latest evolution in our acclaimed line of archive appliances."
The compact one rack-unit Power-Cache Archive Server can control up to four LTO-5 drives with up to two concurrently at full speed. Library24 or Library48 options and a one rack-unit expansion chassis that can hold one or two LTO-5 tape drives can be connected in any combination of up to four tape drives.
Power-Cache is launching with Cache-A's latest version 2.1 software release, which contains many new capabilities for all models. At the top of the list for "most asked-for feature" is the ability to queue jobs from multiple users or events, enabling any Cache-A device to be more responsive in demanding user environments. Cache-A systems also now offer the ability to directly mount Apple file shares, improving performance and convenience in Mac environments. New status reporting shows users more information about file transfer progress, while new network configuration controls give users the ability to set up and view the status of each Ethernet port. Other features specific to Power-Cache include a new RAID manager, SSD OS capabilities, multiple tape drive support and reporting functionality.
Like the company's flagship product, the award-winning Pro-Cache5, and the new quiet, desktop Prime-Cache5, Power-Cache includes LTFS capability. Available as a simple software upgrade from Cache-A, this new format enables users to interchange content across different operating systems, software applications and physical locations. This provides application independence, transportability and protection from obsolescence.
