DALIM ES provides triggers to automatically archive files and projects

Whether it’s newspaper advertisement, catalog pages, a series of labels for a bottle or any other marketing material, managing a project consists of much more than just a single task. It’s about producing, managing, transforming and sharing digital content with the appropriate tools, the right people, at the right time — anytime and anywhere. To take care of these tasks and make sure data is stored safely for long-term preservation after production is finished, a Digital Asset Management system combined with archiving software are the perfect fit for the job.

It ensures productivity and longterm profitability.

P5 Archive, the fully featured archiving software by  the data management experts at Archiware, can either work stand-alone or as the backend for Asset Management systems thanks to its integration friendly interface and its compatibility with cloud, disk and LTO tape storage. P5 Archive is part of the Archiware P5 suite, which offers additional modules for backup and data cloning.

With a new plug-in, DALIM ES offers triggers to automatically archive a single file, or all files of a project at any stage of a workflow. The archiving policy is easily defined in a set-up template. Of course, manual archiving is also available. Both archiving and restoring files can be conducted based on a file metadata search.

In order to achieve maximum data security, the feature set of P5 Archive includes a cloning option to create identical sets of tapes for off-site storage or a duplicate copy of the archive in the cloud. For LTO tape, the parallelization feature provides scalability regarding performance and number of archive/restore jobs running simultaneously.

Archiware P5 Archive is capable of archiving to Disk, LTO tape and the Cloud, leaving the choice of storage media to the customer. A mixed strategy of storage media is advised. For long-term archive, keep in mind that LTO tape is used by corporations, banks and insurance companies worldwide for long-term data storage.
