ORANGE, Calif (Business Wire) -- Apace Systems Corporation®, an innovative media management, workflow and storage product manufacturer for media content creation, distribution and archive, announces immediate availability of Off-line Drive Management (ODM) for enterprise. ODM platform keeps track of each HDD/SSD media drive data on-line or off-line offering a virtual media library scalable to managing Petabytes of data on or off of its platform.

A petabyte of media can be economically managed from a single Apace ODM platform.

ODM is a clear remedy to small and large media organizations' continuous struggle to manage large unmanaged distributed loose media data on disk economically. Standard disk interface assures best interoperability, bandwidth, random access and speed of access to media. Customer's existing disks can be easily inserted into ODM chassis. Each media drive is tracked and related metadata cataloged. Global web-based access and instant playback is facilitated via online proxy database representing raw on or off-line media.

ODM used for Disaster Recovery (DR) strategies offers a fast alternative to expensive DR services. Duplicate disks are sent to DR sites for remote protective archive. Online access to remote archive is possible via a mirror (DR) ODM platform.

ODM is a clear alternative to keeping media on disk vs. tape for off-line purposes. As a part of a three tier storage cluster comprising of Apace online (vStor), near-line (eStor) and managed off-line (ODM), customers are offered tapeless workflow leveraging from high capacity disk as an alternative to LTO tape without shortcomings of dealing with different types of tapes (LTO5, 6...)

ODM platforms offer a variety of system footprints to address different price, managed capacity and performance needs.

Apace Systems showcases its technology at NAB 2013, Apace booth #SL12113.
