“With the growing need to store more content in a more accessible way, Broadcasters and Media companies are looking for higher density and lower cost agile storage solutions. Enterprises have already largely moved their transactional data from tape archives to cloud-based disk storage, but the special requirements for Media storage defeat the economics of typical cloud solutions. At NAB we will be present new technologies and solutions to increase storage density, reduce cost and harness the power of the cloud in a smarter way to deliver tangible business benefits and superior performance – Alan Hoggarth, Managing Director, Disk Archive Corporation

**NEW for NAB** Support for 8TB Archive Disk Drives
At NAB 2015 DAC will announce support for a new generation of Archive Specific 8TB disk drives, which are set to transform the economics of Deep Archive storage on the ALTO Offline platform. The new Disk Drive technology is optimized for long retention times and low throughput characteristically required for Deep Archives and Preservation. With up to 4 Petabytes per rack cabinet, the footprint is significantly smaller than other Archive solutions and being disk-based, the environmental specifications are more relaxed than tape-based solutions bringing direct and indirect cost savings to the ALTO system, which already features the industry’s lowest total lifetime cost of ownership.
Hybrid Cloud Storage Solution
At NAB 2015, DAC will present a new storage concept, which overturns the traditional economic barriers that have made Cloud Storage unaffordable for long form broadcast content in native resolution. Combining the strengths of a high-yield on-premise appliance backed by a Copy of Last Resort in the Cloud, the system offers a multi-petabyte class solution with ultra-low TCO for Broadcasters and Media Companies who need secure and affordable storage for DPP/AS11 tapeless operations
