XenData-Wasabi Solution for Hybrid Media Archive, Backup and Collaboration

Presented by

Dr. Phil Storey, XenData CEO

About this talk

XenData stores media files in the Wasabi cloud providing highly scalable archive, backup and multi-site sync of your content. Most Media & Entertainment operations maintain an “active archive.” These are stores of media files that are accessed with some frequency but nothing like the intensive access associated with shared disk storage used for editing. Traditionally, these active archives have been based on LTO data tape robotic libraries, but now, there are a host of reasons that favor storing active archives in the cloud. XenData provides cloud solutions with functionality that extends well beyond that of conventional on-premises archives. Its Cloud File Gateway allows file-based applications to use cloud object storage, like Wasabi hot cloud storage, without modification. The gateway manages local RAID and an unlimited volume of files in the cloud, creating a hybrid active archive with most frequently accessed files retained on RAID for fastest access. The XenData gateway is not limited to archiving applications; it also allows you to backup any local shared disk storage to the cloud. This provides both active archiving and backup in one scalable solution that is optimized for video applications. The company’s new Multi-Site Sync service creates a global file system and synchronizes cloud storage across any number of Cloud File Gateway locations. This provides media professionals, wherever they are located, complete and up-to-date access to all the assets in the active archive. This webinar will present how XenData and Wasabi simplify the transition to a cloud-based work environment while delivering expanded media file access, workflow efficiency and cost savings.
