Cache-A is collaborating with HP to develop an implementation of Linear Tape File System (LTFS) technology for the media and entertainment industries. LTFS is based on open-source software and enables users to exchange content across different operating systems, software applications and physical locations.
Once LTFS is completely integrated into the Cache-A archive appliance, customers will have the choice of using the mature TAR format or the new LTFS format. Like Cache-A’s TAR-based appliance, LTFS provides a self-describing file system on an LTO cartridge, which provides application independence, transportability and protection from obsolescence.
See Cache-A at the 2011 NAB Show in Booth SL8209.
