Automated Disaster Recovery solution for Avid edit storage at NAB 2016

Marquis Broadcast will demonstrate new developments for its disaster recovery solution for Avid edit storage, Workspace Parking, at NAB this year. Workspace Parking Server which offers all the benefits of Workspace Parking through remote access, plus Workspace Parking Sync which takes an exact copy of all content on one workspace and copies it to another keeping the destination workspace in sync with the source, will both be on show on booth SL8730 for the first time.

Marquis Broadcast, experts in content workflows and media integration software, has today announced the Danish Public Broadcaster, has selected Workspace Backup, Marquis’ ‘set & forget’ disaster recovery solution for Avid workspaces. The Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR), based in Copenhagen, Denmark, is now using Workspace Backup as a back-up and restore solution for half a petabyte, every day, from its three ISIS/Interplay systems.

“Previously, we exploited an in-house built solution, however, it had reached capacity and restoring projects was cumbersome,” confirms Gert Hansen, team leader R&D Media Systems. “Now Workspace Backup backs-up and restores our three ISIS/Interplay systems with 350 Media Composers connected and a total capacity around 600 TB.”

The main challenge with editing workgroups and shared projects is keeping track of where and which assets are used within a project (and other projects). In particular, how media is distributed between workspaces and when is it safe to delete content.

Marquis’ PARKING was conceived with this challenge in mind by creating an application that can both manage archives and optimise storage utilisation.

In one single application PROJECT PARKING analyses all Avid projects and media to identify which projects are using up most space and take appropriate action to transfer, archive or delete.

Marquis has made available as a download a FREE VERSION of the ‘Parking’ storage management solution which analyses Avid storage and projects and presents the results.

“FREE Parking analyses a facility’s Avid storage and enables editors to assess how it is being used, why it is perhaps full and how much space is wasted,” explains Chris Steele, managing director, Marquis Broadcast. “Editors can easily see how much space a single project is taking up and how much room is used up with orphan and duplicate media. FREE Parking is the only independent tool that can answer these pressing questions.

“With tight production deadlines few post houses or broadcasters could afford to start a project from scratch if their primary edit storage were to go down,” confirms Chris Steele, managing director, Marquis Broadcast. “As a result, many organisations have a significant vulnerability when it comes to maintaining business continuity.
