DataDirect Networks and ASG Software Solutions have teamed up to develop an archiving technology meant to help customers manage large volumes of data.
The companies intend to build an integrated service based on DDN’s Web Object Scaler storage technology and ASG’s Digital Archiving open archive software for media and entertainment clients, ASG said Thursday.
Both companies will build the WOS-ADA technology collect data on shared storage and store the information on the WOS platform at a speed of 1.7 gigabytes per second per ADA data mover using multiple archiving streams.
Armel Bile, ASG digital archive product manager, said the technology will be built to complement the WOS application programming interface and ADA’s representational state transfer interface.
The platform also will work to preserve data using a user metadata with short-term back-up and long-term archiving technologies.
ADA software features partial retrieval of material exchange format for media and entertainment post production requirements.
