Cambridge Imaging Systems: Previewing Imagen 3.412 September 2014
CIS is previewing a new version of its Imagen media management and publishing system, as well as highlighting relationships with Microsoft, Quantum and Spectra Logic.
Scheduled for delivery in October, Imagen 3.4 includes cloud-based object storage support for Microsoft Azure and Amazon cloud services. Imagen users will be able to take advantage of cloud storage for backups, proxies or as a primary resource. Imagen’s storage service will offer drop down menus for access to Microsoft Azure’s Blob and Amazon’s S3 cloud storage systems. Imagen 3.4 also offers a new range of stock website themes and browser-based schema editing.
Cambridge Imaging Systems is also building on its Quantum relationship with the introduction of IQ, a new production, storage, delivery and archive platform that combines Quantum’s StorNext Pro STUDIO scale-out storage appliances with Imagen software.
In addition, Imagen’s storage service API has been extended to support Spectra Logic’s BlackPearl deep storage appliance. And, Cambridge Imaging Systems is also represented on the Microsoft stand, demonstrating ImagenCloud, the cloud-based version of Imagen that sits on the Microsoft Azure platform.
Said Tom Blake, managing director of Cambridge Imaging Systems: “Working with these leading developers means we can combine our strengths and bring together the best asset management and storage systems in ways that best suit our users.”
