ALTO In Broadcast and Media Operations
Making the Archive central to Broadcast Operations, rather than just a secure vault at the end of the Program Chain is the first step, but the real improvement comes from using random access disk drives rather than sequential access from tapes, but without sacrificing the security of offline media.
Securing your media is of paramount importance. Just like a Tape Archive, ALTO uses Data Replication to protect your content. Complete files are replicated in multiple locations offering user selectable security and even allowing media to be removed for transport, vault storage or reading with no proprietary or licensed ReadersALTO from Disk Archive Corporation is a unique alternative to a Data Tape Archive starting with as little as 6 Terabytes and expanding on a buy-as-you-go basis to give up to 1.2 Petabytes in a standard rack configuration with a low up-front investment, low total cost of ownership running costs and no downtime for routine maintenance.
