EMC Announces New Archiving Support For Avid UnityShows EMC DiskXtender File System Manager for Avid Unity at NAB2005 (April 14, 2005)
EMC Corporation, the world leader in information storage and management, will showcase today its new EMC DiskXtender File System Manager for Avid Unity at NAB2005, the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) annual trade show. EMC DiskXtender is a leading policy-based archiving software solution used in open systems environments. It helps customers meet growing business and regulatory demands for data storage, retention and retrieval through intelligent, automated placement of data. The Avid Unity solution is a shared media network environment with productivity tools that enables organizations to better produce and manage media assets.
DiskXtender File System Manager for Avid Unity was developed in conjunction with the Avid Unity Workgroups Application Programmer Interface (API) program and is licensed by Avid on a per-site basis. With it, users of Avid Unity can extend management and archival access to files on a wide range of storage platforms including EMC CLARiiON and EMC Centera as well as on tape and DVD.
Available in June 2005, DiskXtender File System Manager for Avid provides a user-friendly GUI that Avid customers use to leverage EMC software as a virtual extension of their Avid Unity environment. The product integrates with the Avid Unity TransferManager and MediaManager Productivity Tools to provide a seamless gateway between Avid Unity MediaNetwork or LANshare storage and EMC storage management.
The GUI lets customers take advantage of:
* Search capabilities - Using a predefined set of attributes, users can search, sort, view and access media assets located in the Avid archive.
* Enhanced management - Customers can restore and delete archived media assets from the Avid archive to Avid Unity. Customers also can view the status of those restore operations.
* Business continuity - Data can now be synchronized between the Avid archive and the Avid archive metadata database in the event of planned or unplanned downtime.
Developed specifically to support Avids industry-leading shared storage network, DiskXtender File System Manger for Avid Unity will be fully integrated with EMC DiskXtender Storage Manager, also available in June. DiskXtender Storage Manager is the re-branded and enhanced product replacing the combination of EMC DiskXtender and EMC AVALONidm software. AVALONidm allows organizations to match storage workflow with information access requirements. DiskXtender Storage Manager will support storage management functionality currently available with EMC AVALONidm software. Through the convergence of DiskXtender and AVALONidm, EMC is bringing together leading technologies that will provide customers enterprise scalability and reliability with advanced storage management functionality.
