ADIC Wednesday announced that it has enhanced its data archiving software to support mixed media, as well as the ability to migrate data between them.
AMASS 5.5 is nearline archiving software for network- and direct-attached storage environments that supports ADIC, as well as tape libraries and DVD and optical libraries.
AMASS 5.5 now has the capability to support mixed media -- SDLT, LTO, AIT or UDO to name a few -- and migrate data from one media type to another. This means that customers can manage large file-based data sets over long periods of time.
AMASS 5.5 also includes ADIC's Infinite File Life (IFL) technology to support all generations of Limited Tape Open (LTO) tape media. IFL automatically tests the integrity of data stored on the LTO cartridge and migrates it to new media when specified error-rate thresholds are met.
The company has also expanded the number of devices supported by AMASS. The software now supports Sun StorageTek 8500 tape libraries, ADIC Scalar 10K libraries with IBM 3592 tape drives, Plasmon GX series libraries and G-series libraries with mixed magneto-optical and Ultra Density Optical (UDO) drives, along with IBM LTO-3 tape drives.
The software now also supports both 32- and 64-bit versions of IBM AIX 5.3 SGI's IRIX and Solaris sgen device drivers.
AMASS 5.5 is available on a Scalar 24 library starting at US$14,800.
