Masstech’s ‘Switch and Save’ Program Lowers Cost of Archive Management, Simplifies Transition

April 6th, 2015 Posted in News Roundup By SVG Staff

Masstech Group (Booth N5506) has announced its “Switch to Masstech and Save” program, a special offer designed to save qualifying video-archive owners on the ongoing costs of their accompanying storage-management system by replacing it with a Masstech solution.

The program is bolstered by Masstech’s archive-transition technology, which makes it easy, fast, and non-disruptive for owners of selected content-storage–management (CSM) systems, including Front Porch Digital (Oracle) and Avalon (EMC), to switch to a Masstech system.

“Escalating total cost of ownership has been a concern of many CSM customers for years, from support costs to capacity-based charges. With our new Switch to Masstech and Save program, qualifying CSM owners can save 20% or more compared to the ongoing costs of their current solution,” says President/CEO Joe French. “Meanwhile, our unique replacement process overcomes the complexity and disruption typically associated with changing storage-management systems, giving media organizations the freedom and confidence to make the move to Masstech and take advantage of the cost benefits our customers have always enjoyed.”

The cost-effectiveness of Masstech solutions continues throughout the entire lifecycle of the system because Masstech does not charge customers additional license fees for expanding storage capacity, a significant benefit as content volumes explode and new video formats, such as 4K/Ultra HD, consume more storage.

Masstech’s archive-replacement process eliminates the barriers that have previously made it difficult for CSM owners to change systems. Able to directly read existing tapes as they are needed, without any changes to the customer’s current storage library, the solutions can transparently access archived content without the time-consuming conversions and migrations that would disrupt operations and impede availability of assets. Entirely non-destructive, the process protects and preserves existing assets while giving media companies the ability to replace their existing CSM with a Masstech solution quickly and easily and with minimal disruption.
