XenData and Marquis have developed an integrated plugin that provides fast and reliable archiving to LTO or Sony Optical Disc Archive Cartridges.
XenData's Archive Server manages disk cache and LTO or ODA libraries to create a digital archive on a Windows platform. Using straight forward NAS architecture and a standard file/folder interface. XenData virtualizes the LTO or ODA archive, appearing locally as a single logical drive letter which is shared over the network.
When combined with a XenData Archive, Marquis' Project Parking provides a reliable tool to liberate space on shared storage by archiving complete Avid Projects to low-cost LTO or ODA storage. The complete archived Avid projects may be easily restored directly from Marquis Project Parking when needed. Project Parking will check before restoring that all of the required tapes for a particular project are loaded in the library and will warn the user when they are not, giving the details of which tapes to insert within the warning.
