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.



NETWORK BACKUP AND ARCHIVE

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

However, with a full searchable catalog of every file copied to tape, custom metadata management, proxy generation before archives and the ability to view proxies on archived assets, the new Pro-Cache takes LTO to a new level of efficiency.
