Etere DiskLibrary is a next-generation software solution that manages archive based on sleeping disks. It is a cost-efficient alternative to LTO and ODA libraries. It allows to mix any archive enclosure as well as different disk technologies.


Etere DiskLibrary is a disk-based archive solution that bridges the gap between performance and cost-efficiency. It is a cost-efficient alternative to Linear Tape-Open (LTO) tapes and ODA. It features greater flexibility and interoperability as it allows the user to use any archive enclosure instead of a dedicated type. For long-term benefits, Etere DiskLibrary provides easy maintenance and upgrades. The ultra fast retrieval time of Etere DiskLibrary fits better in Newsroom application and MAM, where data needs to be retrieved as fast as it is possible. The easily expandable and small footprint fits in every system.


Ultra-dense Storage with Greater Flexibility


Etere DiskLibrary uses sleeping disks which enable significant power savings when not in use. The average life span of the disks is also enhanced. With current technology, it costs lesser than LTO for capacity up to 1 PB. Recognizing that data retention and long-term archive are important elements of a broadcasting lifecycle, Etere DiskLibrary is designed to offer greater flexibility and security at a lower cost. Etere DiskLibrary allows unlimited I/O while LTO access is limited by the number of files and linear access. Etere DiskLibrary is also easier to maintain and upgrade.

Hybrid Disk and Tape for Long-term Storage Solution


Etere DiskLibrary is a versatile solution that works well on its own or as part of a hybrid disk and tape solution, thus empowering organisations with the flexibility to adapt the most suitable solution based on the functional requirements of the data to be archived. Picking an archive solution that meets the functional requirements of the archived data will not only ensure regulatory compliance, lower costs, and mitigate risks but will also meet operational goals and achieve long-term viability.
