Platform Pro-Cache

Extending the capabilities of the original Cache-A Archiving appliances, the Platform Pro-Cache takes network archiving to a new level of efficiency.


Extending the capabilities of the original Cache-A Archiving appliances, the Platform Pro-Cache takes network archiving to a new level of efficiency. Boasting industry standard capabilities including Full and Incremental Backups, recurring jobs, tar, LTFS and ability to read existing Cache-A tapes, The Pro-Cache starts where the prior version left off. However, with a full searchable catalog of every file copied to tape or the cloud, custom metadata management, proxy generation before archives and the ability to view proxies on archived assets, the new Pro-Cache takes LTO and Cloud storage to a new level of efficiency.



By connecting directly to the Pro-Cache or connecting it to a network switch, any user or device can push files to the Pro-Cache RAID for backup or archiving. Tape copies can happen on a recurring schedule or on demand as your workflow requires.
