Cache-A licenses Quantum A-Series technology; product due at NAB2009
Video storage solutions provider Cache-A has licensed A-Series technology from backup, recovery and archive specialist Quantum.
Cache-A will develop future generations of A-Series storage solutions for professional video file-based workflows based on industry standard LTO (Linear Tape Open) tape drives. A-Series technology products offer networked storage systems that are simple to deploy and allow users to transfer their content easily to secure, portable, exchangeable LTO tape cartridges.
Cache-A’s initial product will be an LTO-4-based tabletop model available by the NAB2009 in April 2009. The Cache-A LTO-4 A-Series drives will hold 800GB per cartridge, the equivalent of more than 60 hours of 25Mb/s SD or more than 15 hours of 100Mb/s HD content. The Cache-A LTO-4 A-Series drives will also provide fast file transfers over Gigabit Ethernet in excess of 80MB/s.
