SGL And Qualstar Partner To Provide Cutting-Edge Entry-Level Archive And LTO Library Solution

SGL, a leading provider of content archive and storage management software for media and entertainment, has partnered with Qualstar (NASDAQ: QBAK), a diversified electronics manufacturer specialising in data storage and power supplies, at NAB New York on booth 1219.

SGL's FlashPack entry-level archive is now bundled with Qualstar's entry-level LT06/LT07 tape library providing small-to-medium broadcasters and media companies with a complete archive, content management and LTO library solution that includes all the features required for a fully integrated, infinitely scalable media archive including: hardware, software, support and integration with a MAM or production system.

FlashPack harnesses FlashNet's power, resilience and scalability, in a compact solution. Ideal for broadcasters, sports venues, post production facilities, corporate communications and other organisations that need to manage their media assets, FlashPack coupled with Qualstar's feature-rich Q24 LTO tape library, provides the ideal affordable storage solution.

Qualstar's Q24 LTO tape library offers capacities up to 144 terabytes (native). Its menu-driven graphical built-in operator control panel is easy to use and this identical functionality can also be accessed via an integrated browser-based remote management interface (RMI). This enables IT administrators to remotely configure, manage and diagnose the library from anywhere in the world via the Internet. All field replaceable components, such as the tape drives, power supply and controller board are removable with standard tools.

"Today's customer is looking for a fully integrated and tested archiving solution to manage their business needs and provide the best storage architecture needed to grow their organization," said Arun Vaishampayan, VP Global Sales at Qualstar. "Qualstar's partnership with SGL creates a solution that we believe will provide the requisite capacity, capability and technical advantages to achieve the needed edge."

Douglas Wynn, SGL's VP Sales America, adds, "This is an ideal entry-level, self-contained solution that provides small-to-medium facilities with sophisticated archive and storage tools that are fully secure and scalable, allowing the system to grow with them. We are delighted to announce this partnership at NAB New York and look forward to unveiling further information regarding sales of the combined product to several US facilities in the coming weeks."
