Front Porch Digital has announced the availability of an optional enhancement to its DIVArchive content storage management (CSM) solution that protects content from data tape and drive degradation by continually monitoring the digital storage infrastructure.
DIVAprotect actively collects quality and performance data with each DIVArchive transaction and analyzes whether the information indicates the probability that any individual file-based media object in the system could be at risk. When DIVAprotect determines a particular storage device is at risk, it identifies media objects that might be affected and alerts technical staff to the problem so they can respond before trouble strikes.
The easy-to-understand data collected by DIVAprotect can be used to make decisions on migrating content, recycling defective media and cleaning or preventive maintenance for library drives.
