SyncBlock

Designed to complement TerraBlock Shared Storage workflows, SyncBlock 2.0 is Facilis’ latest line of integrated synchronization, backup and archive solutions that helps TerraBlock customers build a tiered storage network at an affordable price. Using best-of-breed tools from Archiware®, SyncBlock enables artists and administrators to easily and cost-effectively manage backup and archive pools.

Key Features
  • EXPAND YOUR CAPACITY WITH INTEGRATED TIERED STORAGE

    When online storage is at a premium, expand with nearline and LTO subsystems. Manage the movement of data from Tier1 to Tier2 & 3. Backup crucial data and replicate on the fly to multiple LTFS tapes.
  • SEARCH FOR OFFLINE FILES

    Quickly search and restore data from the archive and backup indexes – whether the file is on nearline disk, in the tape drive, or removed from the tape library.
  • WAN MIRRORING & SYNCHRONIZATION

    Protect critical data with server-to-server mirroring and synchronization for wide-area collaborative workgroups and ultimate data redundancy for disaster recovery.
  • ACCESS NEARLINE & OFFLINE ASSETS ACROSS THE NETWORK

    TerraBlock users can easily access data that has been migrated to nearline through the Facilis Shared File System. Simple drag & drop data restoration from any client workstation.
  • SPAN LTFS TAPES

    Archive large volumes in one step, spanning multiple LTO LTFS tapes in the 24-slot library. Combine multiple tapes into an archive pool for complete control.
  • GENERATE PROXY COPIES OF OFFLINE MEDIA

    When archiving media, generate a head frame or proxy copy of the file for future use. Enable editors to verify the content of the files to be restored.
