Archiware with Accusys

Archiware Software & Accusys Storage protect your data.

In video and media production, data loss can be fatal. A failover solution assures continuous production in case something goes wrong. Accusys storage and Archiware's P5 Synchronize work together seamlessly and secure the valuable production data.

Archiware P5 Backup



P5 Backup backups server data to disk or tape, and restore across platforms on Mac, Linux, Windows, and Solaris systems. P5 Backup is browser-based and easy for configuration, administration, and monitoring regardless of your location.

  • Maximum security—Get maximum data security with advanced features that prevent and correct tape or driver errors.
  • Backup clone—Automatically create a backup clone on a second tape for offsite storage/disaster prevention.
  • Interruptible backup—P5 Backup can be interrupted at any time— the backup process will continue automatically from the point where it had stopped.
  • Encryption options—Protect your data with encryption based on individual files and connections.
  • Maximum performance—Get parallelization without limit thanks to support for multiple drives, tasks, and clients running simultaneously.
  • Quick restore—P5's block-direct positioning allows for fast restore because no sequential seeking takes place on the medium.
  • Platform independence—P5 Backup transfers data in a neutral format while maintaining platform-specific information, so you cansave heterogeneous networks with one backup solution.
  • Scalable and modular design—Add other Archiware P5 products, hardware, media, and more smoothly and easily to meet your changing requirements.

Archiware P5 Archive



This long-term storage solution moves data offline to disk and tape, and it works on Mac, Linux, Windows, and Solaris systems. Restore data on any platform. P5 Archive is browser-based and allows for easy configuration, administration, and monitoring regardless of your location.

  • Unparalleled security—Get maximum security with data cloning, encryption options that protect against non-authorized access, and features that prevent and correct tape or driver errors.
  • Data migration—Free up expensive storage space and reduce your backup times and the power usage. By relieving network traffic, you get a better working experience and increased productivity.
  • Simple, user-friendly search—Get quick access to your files with a metadata-driven solution and previews of QuickTime formats like MPEG4, PDF, and MXF that simplify the archive search.
  • Customer integration—Use configurable login areas for restricted or direct access to (selected) parts of the archive.
  • Platform independence—P5 Archive transfers data in a neutral format while maintaining platform-specific information, so you cansave heterogeneous networks with one backup solution.
  • Scalable and modular design—Add other Archiware P5 products, hardware, media, and more smoothly and easily to meet your changing requirements.

LTFS import and export for data exchange


Export P5 Archive data to LTFS formatted LTO tapes

  • Easily manage LTFS tapes in P5.
  • Mount LTFS tapes and have them appear as “volumes” on the desktop that you can treat like a regular mounted disk or volume.
  • Scalable and modular design—Add other Archiware P5 products, hardware, media, and more smoothly and easily to meet your changing requirements.

Archiware P5 Synchronize



This browser-based solution identifies modified data on one system and copies it to additional systems, providing a replica of live storage so there’s no need for a time-consuming restoration process in the event of data loss.

  • Increasing data security—By automatically recognizing and copying all modified files to another system, P5 Synchronize reduces the time between modification and backup to increase security.
  • Maximum availability—Synchronized files are immediately available in the event of a system failure. No restore is required, so even a complete server loss has minimal impact.
  • Filters—Use filters to synchronize only selected files. For example, exclude MP3 files from sync
  • Version management—Keep multiple versions of files as they change over time.
  • Efficient employment of resources—Identical files are replaced by links to already existing files. Snapshots and hard links enable efficient use of storage capacities.
  • Incremental synchronization—You can choose to copy only new and modified files, further reducing the required disk space.
  • Worldwide data distribution—Data is automatically distributed to different locations all over the world, so you can provide subsidiaries, agencies, or partners with a clone of your data set.
  • Data migration—Migrate data—even between heterogeneous systems—within the shortest possible time frame. After synchronization, files are deleted automatically from the source.

Archiware P5 Backup2Go



This solution enables reliable, secure, and efficient backup of valuable data on laptops—regardless of the laptop owner’s location.

  • Efficient client-triggered backup—Rather than managing laptop and desktop backup via a server process, which creates server load and network traffic, Backup2Go lets the laptop initiate its own backup as soon as a server connection is established.
  • Full backup, even with interruptions—If a workstation or laptop is shut down or loses its network connection, the backup process resumes automatically as soon as it’s online again. Incomplete backups are fully functional.
  • Maximum automation with minimal work—Install and configure the solution within minutes. Workstation templates allow administrators to define and customize backup for any given workstation or groups of workstations, so scaling is effortless.
  • Simple, fast restore—An intuitive, browser-based interface lets you restore files with a few mouse clicks. Administrators can allow workstation users to restore their own data if desired.
  • A time machine for your data—Maintain a complete history of a Mac or Windows workstation's backups. The backup index is a simple timeline, and you can view a file’s history and retrieve a version backed up days, weeks, or months before.
  • Central control—Administrators can allow users to configure their own backup, or they can override a user's parameters with a workstation template defined on the server.
  • Incremental backup—Since files are continuously backed up, even during long out-of-office periods, the volume of data for each backup increment remains small so network and server loads are kept to a minimum.
  • Seamless solution—P5 Backup2Go runs seamlessly in the background while you work. Administrators can determine network bandwidth based on individual priorities and/or work being saved.
  • Encryption and management of privileges—Files can be encrypted while being transferred over a network and/or at point of storage. Backup2Go also backs up access rights and file ACLs to protect against unauthorized access after restore. Access to view a workstation's index of saved files is managed via group-based rights.
