Archiware’s P5 platform is ideal for businesses in the Media and Entertainment industry. It consists of modules dedicated to the A-B-C of data management – Archive, Backup and Cloning.  Each module can be combined to create multiple-step security concepts to achieve maximum data protection. Archiware P5 secures data to disk, tape and cloud. It should come as no surprise that Archiware has many integrations with major partners, including the Ardis DDP storage solution.


The flexibility and efficiency of Archiware leaves others in the shade. In particular, the Archive module could be considered a mini-MAM due to its scale of customizable features. For example, you want to archive a feature but omit the rushes created by Person A, while maintaining those created by Person B? Easy. These conditions among countless others can be easily created and applied to your Archive schedule. Add to that customizable media thumbnails along with customizable proxy clips with combined searching and you have a solution that encapsulates automation elegance saving you much time, which of course also saves money.

Thanks to the universal compatibility, the P5 Platform fits into your existing storage environment. Investments in specific hardware are not necessary.

Resources can be used for multiple modules simultaneously – e.g. one tape library for P5 Backup and P5 Archive. If required, resources may be re-allocated to adapt to altered circumstances – without the need for re-installation and with minimal administration efforts.

Archiware offers support by in-house experts. Support and Maintenance are free during the first 12 months.

 Modules can be purchased individually or as part of a bundle.
