The archiving features are integrated with the MAM system making archiving management simpler and more intuitive. The Media Portal features a status icons allowing the operator to quickly know if a given item has been successfully archived or not.
The archiving can be done in different technologies, such as LTO (Linear Tape Open), RDX, ODA (Optical Disc Archive) and even in Cloud.
Media Portal allows the use of all these technologies in a single deployment, and get the best of each, depending on the need.
Infrastructure is modeled through tiering, archiving levels. The management of the files in these tiers is done through a module called Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM). The Media Portal HSM is developed in an integrated way with the MAM system.
In addition to the HSM module, there is a module for archival media management when physical media is used.
The preparation of archival media backup (physical media) is part of the management process. All archiving processes are automated, with minimal manual intervention.
The introduction of a 100% integrated MAM system with an HSM module, and good archival media management practices, represents a large ROI (Return on Investment).
