QNAP Systems, Inc., Overland-Tandberg˛ part of Sphere 3D,and Archiware GmbH, have joined forces to provide a solution for data protection.

The integration comprises QNAP NAS, Overland-Tandberg RDX removable disk system and Archiware P5 Software Suite.

QNAP NAS ranks amongst the most efficient and flexible. It improves data management with its ease-of-use, robust operation and storage capacity. Business data is quickly stored and accessed, with additional integrated technologies and services included.

RDX is a removable disk system. Contrary to cloud services, using an RDX for off-site storage provides the user with control over the data. Independence of bandwidth and availability of any online service adds to the benefits.

P5 Software Suite offers platform agnostic data management software for archiving, backup and cloning of data. The browser-based software is now optimized to run on QNAP NAS and comprises four modules to secure and restore data: P5 Synchronize, P5 Backup, P5 Backup2Go and P5 Archive.

Using P5 Backup and P5 Archive, data can be stored offline at a different location for medium- and long-term security. This is enabled by RDX removable media, which is now available as an option for QNAP NAS models: TVS-882BRT3 or TVS-882BR. Using P5 Backup, a copy of the data is created and stored on the QNAP system, which can quickly be moved offsite for maximum protection. In P5 Archive, archived files can be referenced and restored using a file catalog, which includes thumbnails, media previews and searchable metadata.

Meiji Chang, GM, QNAP, said: "It would be our greatest pleasure to work with the globally renowned Overland-Tandberg and Archiware, and jointly deliver a strong and reliable total data security solution. With QNAP NAS, data can be efficiently ingested and stored on NAS and Overland-Tandberg's RDX devices, both external and internal ones, via the Archiware P5 backup and archiving utility. Multi-layer backup and DR plans can be easily deployed both on- and off-site, offering adequate mid- to long-term data keeping needs."

"The combination of powerful QNAP NAS with P5 for data management and RDX for removable media makes this integration particularly unique. The customer's need for maximum data security and long-term archiving are supported in the simplest way possible," said Archiware business development manager Dr. Marc Batschkus. "More and more customers are discovering how valuable their data is and this combined solution solves their issues."

A live demonstration of the integration was presented at Inter Broadcast Equipment Exhibition 2017, in Chiba City, Chiba Prefecture, Japan, on November 15-17, at QNAP's booth.
