The company’s solutions offer unparalleled support for cloud vendors including Amazon, Wasabi, Cloudian, and MS Azure and for all industry-leading MAM, PAM, NRCS, automation, video server, and library solutions. Masstech also will focus on the flexibility of FlashNet and MassStore in delivering disaster recovery (DR) solutions optimized for any price point and DR strategy — from simple content replication to full archive duplication. For those media companies concerned about maintaining the ongoing security of their archived content, Masstech will demonstrate the ease with which Oracle DIVA archives can be migrated to a Masstech solution, without disruption of services or constraints on content access.
FlashNet — Media Object Storage
Masstech will showcase its FlashNet media object storage application, a highly scalable and secure cross-platform content management system that integrates seamlessly with leading MAM, PAM, NRCS, automation, video server, and library systems to improve media organizations’ workflow efficiency. Rules-based media management allows for automated optimization; FlashNet ensures that content is always stored in the most cost-effective and operationally efficient location.
FlashNet can be deployed on-premise, in the cloud, or in a hybrid configuration, and it supports disk- and tape-based storage independently or in combination. A hardware-agnostic solution built on an open system architecture, FlashNet adapts readily to growing and changing organizational and business requirements. Highly scalable and customizable to individual customers, FlashNet is available in solutions ranging from a single server to an enterprise-scale system. FlashNet features automated failover and built-in redundancy, and its support for LTFS allows tapes to be mounted on a Windows file system for emergency file access.
