Free Choice of Storage
Which storage option is best for you is determined by your needs, budget, and plan. Each of the storage options – disc, tape, and cloud – has its own set of traits and advantages. Archiware P5 is compatible with a wide range of disc, tape, and cloud vendors. To provide the greatest versatility, P5 Backup and P5 Archive can use the disc, tape, and cloud storage.
Updates in the Browser
On macOS and Linux installations, software updates can be installed straight through the web-admin interface. This is especially beneficial for remote systems like Amazon EC2 instances, which might be difficult to update.
A single click searches Archiware’s servers for the latest versions, downloads and instals them, and restarts them. This capability is only available on platforms that don’t have their own programme registry, which includes P5. Windows and NAS systems like QNAP, Synology, and ReadyNAS all come with their own package manager.
The P5 License Model
The P5 Platform is offered as a single installer that includes all modules and requires a licence key to activate. This allows for the insertion of new modules at any moment without the requirement for time-consuming installation. The licence model for P5 Backup and P5 Archive is dependent on the tape or disc storage capacity as well as the number of LTO devices in libraries.
