Cache-A promotes interoperability18 March 2011
Cache-A Corporation is working with HP to roll out an easy-to-use implementation of LTFS (linear tape file system) for the broadcast and media industry. LTFS is based on open source software, and enables users to interchange content across different operating systems, software applications and physical locations.
This collaboration combines the benefits of LTFS, which makes tape look like disk, with the convenience of Cache-A’s appliance approach, which makes tape actually behave like disk. The claim is that broadcast engineers will be able to use the solution to simplify operations, improve manageability and meet long-term data retention requirements using industry standard LTO-5 tape.Existing Cache-A users will be able to migrate to LTFS at the touch of a switch, without additional cost.
