SGL, a leading provider of content archive and storage management software for media and entertainment, has today announced its integration with high-speed file transfer software provider Aspera. Using the latest version of SGL’s FlashNet archive solution, broadcasters and content owners can now transfer media to a private or commercial cloud at a guaranteed speed benefitting from an additional means of storage and disaster recovery workflows.
Aspera provides a breakthrough transport technology that fully utilises available network bandwidth, transfers data at maximum speed and scales up as required with no theoretical limit. The SGL integration with Aspera means that broadcasters and content owners can quickly and easily transfer material directly to the cloud from their MAM system using SGL FlashNet.
FlashNet’s rules-based implementation provides fully-automated data duplication across multiple storage layers and locations. Using the latest version of FlashNet operators can create additional rules that send material directly to the cloud. The FlashNet archive is able to track and record exactly where material is at any given time regardless of long-term storage method.
Douglas Wynn, SGL’s VP Sales Americas, explains, “Using the cloud for disaster recovery purposes provides a secure and cost-effective place for material that’s only likely to be restored in the event of a catastrophic failure. We’re delighted to announce this integration with Aspera further highlighting FlashNet’s scalability, resilience, flexibility and adaptability.”
