ProMAX to add automated Hybrid Cloud Backup to Platform Workflow Servers


New cloud backup function will allow media creators to automatically push projects and footage to their existing cloud storage accounts

(September 12th, 2017; Santa Ana, CA) ProMAX Systems, world leader in integrated workflow technology for creative media organizations, has announced new functionality that will integrate ProMAX Platform™ Workflow Servers with client’s existing cloud services such as Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure™, Google Cloud Storage™, Rackspace™ and many others.

“As cloud technology and connection infrastructure continues to improve, media organizations look for easier ways to backup and restore their critical assets.” said Jess Hartmann, CEO of ProMAX Systems.  “With the introduction of ProMAX Platform Hybrid Cloud Backup, customers will enjoy automated backup to the cloud storage service of their choice.  And because this new feature is fully integrated into the Platform browser interface, any permitted user can backup or restore server files directly from their workstation.”

Utilizing the same functionality as currently offered in Platform’s LTO backup and archive system, administrators can set backup tasks on any repeating frequency and data will automatically be copied to the cloud storage account.  After the backup, each file is recorded into the Platform’s one integrated catalog so that users can easily search to see what files are in their cloud account and then request bulk or individual file restores back to their Platform System.”.

In the initial implementation, ProMAX Platform will offer connect to the following cloud services:  Amazon S3, Amazon Glacier, Amazon Cloud Drive, Microsoft Azure, OpenSTack, RackSpace, Backblaze B2, Google Cloud Storage, Google Drive, OneDrive, OneDrivce for Business, Oracle Cloud.  Contact ProMAX Systems for other implementations.

ProMAX Platform Hybrid Cloud Backup™ module will be available at the end of Q4 2017.  For more ProMAX Platform™ visit www.promax.com.
