SGL Presents FlashNet Upgrade

The latest version of flagship MAM FlashNet will include tools for enhanced disaster recovery and cloud archiving.

At the 2017 NAB Show, SGL is introducing new tools to enable multiple sites to stay in sync with each other, even when every site is running its own production processes.

Newly integrated are Amazon’s S3 and Glacier platforms for archiving destinations, plus there’s added support for Sony Ci.

SGL will highlight the latest developments to its FlashNet Infinity User Interface including a Navigator tool to explore the entire set of archived assets in their original folder format; support for watch folder projects; advanced metadata support; and capacity analysis.

Plus there’s a revision to the FlashNet Watch Folder Service so it now manages projects, offers efficient Incremental Archiving, monitors “vast” numbers of watch folder files and supports Mac and camera storage workflows.

Other upgrades include support for Sony Optical Disk ODS 2 and the AXF file format.

A US launch is the entry-level archive FlashNet Lite which comes in four configurations providing options for content storage that is disk only, tape only, optical disk or a combination of disk and tape. FlashNet Hybrid is upgradeable to 50TB of disk support, two tape drives and 100 slots with one server. This provides nearly 600TB capacity with LTO7 tapes. Running on a single server node, FlashNet Lite can grow as the customer’s archive expands. FlashNet Lite includes important FlashNet tools including: integration with a wide range of partner solutions and storage devices; business storage rules; partial file restore; and SGL’s sophisticated Infinity user interface.
