Atempo Expands File Archiving Capabilities with Atempo Digital Archive 3.0

Atempo, Inc., a leading provider of cross-platform data protection and archiving solutions, today introduced several new management and support features with Atempo Digital Archive 3.0. These new capabilities include an integrated media management layer, enhanced disaster recovery capabilities, an XML plug-in, support for multi-partitioned archive operations, and key compatibility with NetApp NAS storage solutions as well as with Building4Media, which offers a media asset management software widely used in creative markets. Together, the new features in Atempo Digital Archive (ADA) 3.0 further optimize the file archiving software for customers with data-intensive storage environments, particularly those in media-rich application environments.

Atempo Digital Archive enables the automated and end-user triggered movement of data from primary disk onto archival media. It seamlessly integrates into the most complex digital workflows to help organizations improve the overall management of their digital assets while significantly reducing storage costs. The new media management layer in ADA 3.0 simplifies the software’s configuration into new storage environments and enables it to connect to tape devices more easily and independently. In addition, this built-in media manager gives customers improved archiving performance and allows administrators to better keep track of offline tapes.

The new software features integration of NetApp’s file migration API, which allows ADA 3.0 to archive data stored on NetApp NAS storage devices. The integration simplifies the file retrieval process for NetApp and Atempo customers by leveraging stubbing capabilities on the NetApp devices. ADA 3.0 also delivers integration with Building4Media’s FORK Production Suite, a media asset management program widely used by media and entertainment organizations. This support is critical to the production and post-production processes, as it integrates into the creative workflow by archiving data stored in FORK to inexpensive storage media, while still leaving a stub in the program for easy retrieval from the archives.

“ADA 3.0 represents a major milestone in the evolution of our archiving platform,” said Mark Sutter, CTO of Atempo. “The new, built-in media manager significantly reduces the complexity of initial configuration and ongoing administration of tape devices used for archiving purposes, which is important to both current and new Atempo customers. While this feature will benefit all archiving customers, as will other key features of our 3.0 release, customers in media-rich application environments will recognize particularly attractive gains in performance and flexibility, as well as tight workflow integration with the creative process.”

ADA 3.0 features a new XML plug-in aimed at facilitating ADA’s integration into complex workflows. It also supports multi-partitioned archive operations, which allow the joint archival of related files together with their associated metadata. This association is seen in the user interface, which visually links related files and metadata. While this is useful in a wide range of applications, it is especially important for complex creative workflows that often have a high number of associated files. The software also includes a new disaster recovery feature that offers redundancy of high-value digital assets and enhanced reliability of ADA in the event of a disaster. If one storage device fails, ADA ensures that there is automatic failover to another device so that the archived information can be retrieved as needed.

Atempo Digital Archive’s core features include end-user initiated archive through a dedicated user interface, file level deduplication, full content indexing and search, file stubbing capabilities that allow for the easy retrieval of archived information, and many other features that make it a leading file archiving and digital workflow management application. ADA is available for Windows, Linux, Unix and Mac OS X platforms.

Atempo will demonstrate Atempo Digital Archive 3.0 and other solutions at the IBC 2009 Conference, Hall 7, booth #K25, in Amsterdam, Netherlands from September 11-15.

ADA 3.0 will be generally available in October 2009. For more information, visit
