(Burbank, California--December 4, 2014) Archion, a global leader in providing networked storage solutions for media workflows, today announced Collaborate, a new appliance to manage Adobe® Creative Cloud® sync points and provide continuous high-speed access to the world of Adobe CC assets, Archive, Libraries, files and tools. Collaborate makes sharing and working together easy and efficient for all Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) users.
The full potential of Archion’s EditStor EO shared storage system with Adobe CC can now be realized with the integration of Archion’s Collaborate. This uniquely designed high-performance appliance for Adobe CC environments provides a single local sync point that allows Adobe CC content creators to share, collaborate and create.
"Never before has there been so much to gain by combining Adobe Creative Cloud solutions with a networked storage infrastructure so that remote creative teams can deliver their most innovative work," said James Tucci, chief technology officer of Archion. "While not every storage solution has been designed to work with media workflows, our EditStor platform was specifically designed for creative professionals and teams. At the same time, Archion's advanced Collaborate server has been specifically designed to meet the needs of Adobe's Creative Cloud."
“We believe Adobe CC will change how industry professionals collaborate," said Reuben Lima, Archion’s chief executive officer. "Adobe has developed a rich environment of mobile tools for content creation, and Archion’s Collaborate appliance will seamlessly sync content for shared production environments. Creative professionals using Adobe CC and Archion's EditStor will now gain the benefit of sharing and working together more easily and efficiently."
Collaborate Offers 24/7 Adobe CC Connectivity
Archion's Collaborate fits into an EditStor EO network to provide 24/7 Adobe CC cloud connectivity between local client workstations and all remote applications and systems. Easy to install and set up, it comes completely configured with two 10gigE ports. One is connected to the EditStor EO 10gigE port for fast transfer of media, Libraries and Collaboration files to the client's shared sync point. The second 10gigE port is connected to the Internet and Adobe CC Sync.
Sync is the key in the new Adobe CC tools. Archion’s Collaborate provides the sync point for all the Adobe CC clients on the EditStor network, making CC Collaboration tools always available for mobile applications and remote networking clients. All of the assets, archives, files, Libraries and Collaboration shares are available on all Adobe CC Sync systems 24/7 with EditStor and the Archion Collaboration appliance. Working with Collaborate is transparent to an Adobe user.
Normally, when the workstation in a client-to-cloud connection is down, the access to Sync, Assets, Archive, Collaboration sessions and Libraries is not available. However, with Archion’s Collaborate, Sync points are always available and online regardless of the status of the user system.
* Continuous sync on Adobe CC for multiple systems running CC Sync
* Direct high-speed 10gigE from the Archion EditStor EO to Collaborate and out to the Internet
