Long-term storage & Disaster Recovery
- Disaster Recovery across disparate sites
- Each site acts as DR backup for the other
- FlashNet driven by Avid Interplay and in-house MAM ‘Imagine’
Sky Italia required an automated disaster recovery system for each of its sites, in Milan and Rome. The system had to work seamlessly with Sky’s own in-house MAM system, and enable assets to be shared using their Avid interplay PAM system.
Separate FlashNet systems control each site’s local archive, each sharing asset storage location details into both MAMs. FlashNet automatically creates a duplicate copy of each asset on the sister site, and updates Avid and Sky’s MAM, ensuring that all assets can be retrieved by and from either site. This duplication ensures that in the event of failure of either system, every asset in storage remains accessible.
