Front Porch Digital to demonstrate LYNXdr with storage service

LYNXdr is the first product from Front Porch Digital’s LYNX family of cloud storage and publishing systems. The company claims the disaster recovery (DR) and long-term asset storage service is the first to integrate cloud-based online video publishing (OVP). "LYNXdr gives our customers an inexpensive, secure, automated off-site content storage management capability without needing to invest in capital-intensive technology," said Phil Jackson, Front Porch Digital chief marketing officer. "Effectively LYNX takes DIVASolutions and wraps it in the cloud. Buying CSM as a service really makes sense as it can grow to meet the changing needs of the business, and new and unique services can evolve on the platform further adding value over time while being available on demand, both from Front Porch Digital direct and our trusted partners." The LYNXdr service ingests file-based video content via networking and data tape shipment. Users have the option of managing the ingest and restore processes manually from supplied software, or automating the processes to make ingest and restore invisible background tasks. Each LYNXdr service comes with the necessary software to network existing DIVArchive implementations to the cloud and with the option of a hosted implementation of Front Porch Digital’s media asset management system DIVAdirector V.5 to view system-wide content. N5806
