EditShare Ships New Ark Update

EditShare, a technology leader in shared media storage and end-to-end tapeless workflow solutions, announced the availability of a new version of EditShare Ark, the company’s backup and archiving solution.

“Back up and archiving is critical in every type of production – from news, sports, motion picture, and episodic TV – to corporate and advertising production. Protecting your assets is essential, but accessibility is equally as important,” comments Andy Liebman, founder and CEO, EditShare. “Because Ark is directly integrated into our tapeless workflow and collaborative storage products, archived content can be easily searched in the EditShare Flow Media Asset Management tools, retrieved, and quickly broughtback onto the EditShare production storage.”

The new Ark release features numerous enhancements including a new user interface that displays extensive information about Ark system activity support for additional tape loaders, and more options for configuring network interfaces to maximize performance across the EditShare tiered storage platform.

Liebman adds, “The new EditShare Ark interface also provides real-time updates on archive performance and continuous system health monitoring, ensuring both the safety and accessibility of your valuable media.” The new release supports tape libraries from Quantum, Dell and Spectra Logic.

The EditShare Ark V2.1.3 update is free to existing EditShare Ark V2 customers with a valid maintenance contract.
