Etere Disklibrary – More Reasons to Migrate Your Archive

Etere Disklibrary provides the best flexibility, security, and performance with no vendor lock-ins or license subscriptions. It allows you to mix any archive enclosure and disk technologies.

In the fast-paced media industry, archival technology has seen many generations of transformations, including video tapes, optical disks, and data tapes. When the technology reaches end-of-life, your content may become vulnerable to security breaches. Etere has an ideal migration strategy, the Etere Disklibrary, that offers the best flexibility, security, and performance with no vendor lock-in. It allows you to mix archive enclosure and disk technologies for the best performance.

What’s more, it offers the best cost-efficiency in the market with no license to renew and no proprietary technologies to go obsolete. Etere Disklibrary provides ultra-low setup and maintenance costs, with one of the market’s lowest lifetime ownership costs. Etere bridges the gap between performance and cost-efficiency. Secure your valuable content with Etere Disklibrary for a future-proof investment.

Etere Disklibrary Supports Sleeping Disks with Ultra-low Power Consumption

Etere DiskLibrary supports sleeping disks that switch to standby mode when not in use. With their ultra-low power consumption, sleeping disks have a longer lifespan. Current technology costs less than LTO for capacity up to 1PB. Recognising that data retention and long-term archiving are essential parts of a broadcasting lifecycle, Etere DiskLibrary is designed to offer greater flexibility and security at a lower cost.

Etere Disklibrary Supports Hybrid Tape and Disk Archive for Long-term Storage

Etere Disklibrary works well independently or as part of a hybrid disk and tape solution. Users have the flexibility to adopt the most suitable setup based on the functional requirements of the data to be archived. With Etere, you can simultaneously meet regulatory compliance requirements, lower operating costs, mitigate security risks, and meet your long-term archival goals.

Etere Disklibrary Supports JBODS and MAID

Etere Disklibrary supports JBODS (Just a box of Disks), which enables multiple hard disks to be set up independently or combined into one or more logical volumes using a volume manager. It features a smaller footprint and allows each drive to be accessed from the host PC as a separate drive. Furthermore, JBODS enables the mixing of different disk sizes.

Etere also supports MAID (Massive Array of Idle Disks), which allows many densely packaged disk drives in a system. With MAID, only active drives spin, reducing power consumption by up to 85 percent compared to traditional disk solutions. Its low power consumption properties prolong the lifespan of the disks by up to 6 times. MAID is also compatible with Write Once Read Occasionally (WORO) applications.
