Front Porch Digital to integrate Sony's latest Optical Disc Archive technology into DIVArchive

Front Porch Digital will integrate Sony’s new Optical Disc Archive products into its DIVArchive advanced CSM system as an alternate means of storage for both DIVArchive and LYNXSM cloud-based disaster recovery and media asset storage service. Optical Disc Archive stores data in a compact cartridge with 12 optical discs for high-capacity file-based archiving. Sony will introduce new Optical Disc Archive products later this year. "This integration is a good fit because Optical Disc Archive already offers the durability, reliability, and longevity our customers require," said Mike Knaisch, president and CEO of Front Porch Digital. "By supporting the new Optical Disc Archive products, we give our DIVArchive and LYNX customers another way to store content using the latest technology from a global leader." While Front Porch Digital customers will benefit from having an alternate storage technology, the integration benefits Sony’s Optical Disc Archive customers by giving them the ability to store their important data safely, with scalable storage capacity and performance from DIVArchive and LYNX. Support from DIVArchive, which can integrate with multiple media libraries, will play an important role for a wide range of Sony’s broadcast customers in expanding storage space beyond Optical Disc Archive, migrating content from tape to Optical Disc Archive, and recovering from disaster.
