HSM Backup


SAMA Backup


Today, the amount of audiovisual data is rapidly increasing, and keeping this high-volume of media files on computers for a long time seems to be unreliable and quite expensive as well. An appropriate media device to preserve digital files for a long time should be less expensive, have high longevity, and not occupy a large space. One of the most long-lasting devices for this purpose is digital magnetic tape.


Digital preservation

Although digital magnetic tapes are sequential-access devices and are not as fast as hard disks, they have been used as archive devices for a long-time unlimited preserving of digital data. Accordingly, SAAT Co has produced SAMA Backup system (HSM) for institutions and organizations that, in particular, deal with audiovisual data.


Easy Transportation

SAMA Backup is designed to help to save a backup of media files on digital magnetic tapes. It provides a proper environment to manage backup tapes. Users can view the metadata of archive objects such as title, keywords, description, and date before loading the tapes. SAMA Backup can be integrated with SAMA Archive, and in this case, all backup and restore operations can be directly done via the SAMA Archive interface.


Features and facilities:

  • Compatible with all generations and versions of LTO and SDLT tapes
  • Supporting LTFS 2
  • Various file transmission protocols supported
  • Timing and managing the backup activities
  • Working with several tape drives at the same time
  • Inserting metadata into the database
  • Search within metadata without loading the tape
  • Restoring database from tapes if the database is removed
  • Archived objects are movable to other stations
  • Reminder for retrieving archived objects from tapes
  • Integrated with SAMA Archive and SARA Archive
  • Extended and distributed backup and restore
  • Prioritizing backup and restore requests
