DataCore Software and Atempo have announced the integration of Atempo Miria Data Management platform with DataCore Swarm object storage software.
“Miria’s new WORM capabilities for long-term archive now takes full advantage of the S3-compatible API and immutability options in DataCore Swarm, enabling granular time navigation through simple retrieval of multiple files at a given point in time.” stated Louis Laszlo, Director of Product Management at Atempo. “It offers highly flexible configurations, high availability, and unmatched performance while reducing enterprise storage costs.”
Organisations are primarily using Atempo Miria and DataCore Swarm for active archive, preserving large volumes of multimedia files, like videos, so they can be quickly retrieved in full, or partially restored on-demand as short clips directly from Media Asset Managers (MAM) or from Miria’s Web interface.
Additionally, the joint solution can be used to cost-effectively archive large dataset volumes while uncluttering expensive high-performance shared storage required for post-production work.
Miria’s new capabilities make it very easy to store important files for long-term retention leveraging Swarm’s WORM/immutability options to prevent ransomware, tampering or unintentional deletion.
“Customers favour the combination of Miria and Swarm for their active archive workflows for several reasons, including the open approach for managing and storing metadata with each object, the scalability of the joined solution as well as the high performances delivered,” said Ben Watson, Technical Director, Product Management for DataCore. “They benefit from a flexible and massively scalable archive where content is immediately accessible to users and workflows. Both solution elements have an extensive track record for addressing customers’ challenges in rapidly scaling media library or sharing content between remote sites.”
The combined solution consists of Miria, the agile data management platform that leverages the highly flexible Swarm software-defined object storage, to simplify storage management and reduce costs, both of which are very important to organisations facing tight IT budgets and resources.
