Cache-A Prime – Super Smart Archival Deck

The new Prime-Cache5 (MSRP: $7,995) is smart LTO-5 drive and a 2TB hard disc drive that allows you to archive across a network without the need of a server. It lives on the network and you can simply “drop” files onto the tape as if it were a regular network share. You can search for your media u sing its built-in searchable database of all your tapes – remembering every single tape it has ever seen and will even share its catalog database with all other Cache-A appliances on the network. You can schedule automated backups or events on a one-time, daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Of course you can span archives across multiple cartridges as well. This seems like a good solution for a work group sized way to archive media to tape.
