[Alison Huckett]"It's time to update our archive and back up system from DLT to LTO and I've been considering either EditShares Ark (as we have an EditShare server already) or Cache-A."
Hello, Alison — we're just seeing your question now. We don't normally use Creative Cow as a forum for incoming questions, so unfortunately things can slip through the cracks if posted here. If you haven't already done so, I suggest getting in touch with us so that we can discuss your needs.
I can say that we have people using Cache-A as well as Ark, and while we think that Ark has a lot of strong advantages that make it worth considering, we're willing to come up with a tailored solution for each customer that we work with that can, if necessary, involve working with third-party products as well.
I've passed along your question to others here at EditShare and they should follow up with you shortly, but like I say, I also encourage you to get in touch with us so that we can go over backup & archival options for your server.
