Cache-A Corporation is now shipping a substantially improved and more durable edition of its Prime-Cache5 desktop archive appliance. The company says that this version is quiet-enough for both office and on-set use and sports a new and toughened chassis plus a built-in 2.5-inch HDD RAID that significantly accelerates disk-based transfer speeds. These enhancements are made with Cache-A’s latest v3.1 software upgrade based on 64-bit enterprise level CentOS 6.2 adding new LTFS capabilities. Prime Cache5 integrates into file-based workflows and its connectivity options include a dual GB Ethernet port plus two USB 3.0 ports and four USB 2.0 ports. “Archiving has never been so affordable. Anyone needing a compact and portable entry into LTO-5 archiving will really appreciate the capabilities and blazing-fast performance of the improved Prime-Cache5 ” said Phil Ritti CEO of Cache-A. “It is easy-to-use ultra-quiet and unobtrusive in the office or in an on-set production environment.” The new Prime-Cache is priced at $7 995.
