SAN Solutions Offers Archive Indexing Tool

RENO, Nev. -- SAN Solutions, a leading architect of enterprise-class network storage infrastructures for the media and entertainment markets, today announced that it will showcase the company's new Crawler media verification engine, a stand-alone appliance that verifies the integrity of assets across an archive, at the 2009 NAB Show. In scanning file systems and indexing and verifying media across a SAN- or NAS-based architecture, the Crawler confirms the ongoing utility and value of stored media, and also enables the content owner to federate storage archives and use a central database to search all of its media assets.

"The value of a media asset lies in the owner's ability to access and use that content when it is needed," said Harry Aine, president of SAN Solutions. "The Crawler gives content producers and owners security in the knowledge that all of the media required for production or delivery has been verified off the archive. Extensive indexing capabilities enable users to perform powerful searches and get the most out of their archives, and the Crawler's high interoperability with other systems makes file verification part of a seamless asset management workflow."
