Televisión de Puebla digitally preserves cultural heritage content
Televisión de Puebla, the public TV network of the Mexican state of Puebla, is using Spectra Logic’s StorCycle Storage Lifecycle Management Software to strengthen its ability to protect and preserve its invaluable Puebla cultural heritage content.
As the public TV network of Puebla, Televisión de Puebla promotes Puebla’s educational, economic, social, and cultural content through TV programming. Public TV networks of Televisión de Puebla cover almost 40% of the state’s population and aims to address the needs, expectations, and lifestyles of Puebla citizens.
Televisión de Puebla searched for a reliable data storage solution that could digitally and intelligently archive and preserve their cultural heritage, while facilitating the complex administration of its expanding amounts of stored data. Through Comtelsat, a Mexican broadcast solutions integrator, Televisión de Puebla selected Spectra Logic to provide a cost-effective and seamless solution, consisting of Spectra StorCycle storage lifecycle management software; Spectra BlackPearl, an object storage platform; and Spectra Stack, a compact tape library.
StorCycle identifies cold data residing on the organization’s primary storage and transparently migrates it to a secure Perpetual Tier, which includes any combination of cloud storage, object storage disk, network attached storage and object storage tape. The BlackPearl object storage platform provides a portal to these storage targets, writing the data to tape in an open standard format. All data sent to tape is encrypted at rest, providing an extra layer of protection for the invaluable assets of Televisión de Puebla.
Offering the scalability needed by Televisión de Puebla, the new solution from Spectra allows the organization to easily add more tape drives and slots to the Spectra Stack Tape Library as their archive grows. The overall solution frees up space on primary storage by moving unused data to the archive infrastructure so they can continue to preserve and protect their treasured Puebla cultural heritage long term.
