A powerful alliance: With FreeNAS and Archiware P5 to an all-in-one solution

Category: News, Press

Starline has created a true power bundle: Our flexible and affordable NASdeluxe family - with its astonishing ZFS talents - receives additional reinforcement in the backup area: Thanks to Archiware P5, it now interacts with external drives, tape libraries and cloud services.

Archiware P5 now enables the robust FreeNAS systems from Starline (bottom row) to backup to tapes, external drives and to the cloud.

Evolution with NASdeluxe: The attractively priced FreeNAS product line of the Starline own brand now also masters the functions of a backup server. RDX drives, tape libraries or a cloud connection can also be used to back up valuable company data.
This successful cooperation was made possible by a software variant from Starline partner Archiware: their software suite P5 is now available in version 6 - and it is also available as a compatible version for FreeBSD. FreeNAS, however, is based on FreeBSD and already offers data security through the ingenious ZFS file system and snapshots functions. With additional plugins it can be extended modularly.

As hardware platform solid Supermicro servers are used in the rackmount sector. They are always assembled according to the individual needs of the customer and assembled on site in Kirchheim unter Teck. The number of drives, equipment and interfaces are freely selectable. So the customer gets the best of both worlds: Hardware in industrial quality combined with a flexible and modular open source OS.

By the way:
Archiware doubles a storage license (Media Management + Storage Licenses, MMSL) for disk and cloud to 8 TB in the new version. In addition, the calculation of the required MMSL is now based on the storage actually used instead of the maximum possible storage size as was previously the case. Archiware customers are therefore more flexible when configuring disk and cloud storage.

In addition to P5 Workgroup Edition, P5 Sync Edition, P5 Professional Edition, there will be another bundle called P5 Desktop LTO Edition. This package already existed last year as a promotion, but will now be released as a regular product. It combines features of other packages and closes the gap for users who want to backup only to tape and not to the cloud or disk. However, the LTO edition cannot be combined with other packages. On the other hand, it is significantly cheaper than comparable package bundles.
