Archive to the Cloud by Archiware

Archiware has launched version 5.4. of the P5 product suite including archiving to Amazon S3 cloud services plus integrated preview creation using professional converter tools.

For businesses, cloud storage is welcome as a cost-effective and flexible storage alternative. Long-term archives, which need to be accessed less frequently and less urgently than production data, are increasingly moved to the cloud, saving hardware and administration costs.

Therefore, Archiware now offers customers the option of archiving to cloud storage. In the newly-released version 5.4 of the P5 Suite, Amazon S3 cloud services are integrated, with additional services to be added in future releases.

A second feature of P5 version 5.4 is the integration of FFmpeg and ImageMagick into the user interface. These converter tools for video and image files respectively are now configurable within Archiware P5. During the archiving process, a preview is created of video and image files in the specified format, bit rate, etc. and stored with the metadata.

Additional functionalities include support for operating systems macOS 10.12 Sierra and Windows Server 2016 and various checksum tests for verification of archived data. To facilitate cooperative workflows, archived assets can be sent as a link via e-mail for restore, approval or editing.

Lastly, the user interfaces and the display of running synchronization and backup plans have been reviewed and adapted.

Archiware P5 Version 5.4 is available for download as an upgrade or as a 30-day free trial.
