Archiware Shows LTFS Data Exchange

Archiware, producer of data management software Archiware P5 and Pure, will demonstrate upcoming version 5.6 of the P5 software suite in conjunction with partner products.

A significant addition to Archiware’s upcoming P5 version is the native integration of data exchange in LTFS format. This is intended to eliminate the common drawbacks of LTFS, with no additional driver requirements. LTFS data exchange will be demonstrated in a live environment along with Archiware’s partner products:

  • mLogic mTape and mBridge
  • Spectra Logic stackable tape library
  • Promise Pegasus3
  • Quantum Scalar tape library
  • ATTO ThunderLink Thunderbolt to FibreChannel converter

“This year, Archiware is working with 35 hardware and software partners at the show,” says the firm. “New partnerships comprise NAS manufacturer QNAP, Cloud service provider Wasabi and storage partner LumaForge.”

P5 also includes LTO-8 support for P5 Archive and P5 Backup; Microsoft Azure, Hitachi S3 and Wasabi S3 support; Support for Backblaze Fireball service to import large datasets; and extended NAS compatibility: QNAP and Synology.
