Keeping ‘The Danish Girl’ safe

Keeping ‘The Danish Girl’ safe

Salon have recently provided Tom Hooper’s ‘The Danish Girl’ with full LTO backup services. The service, launched by Salon in 2014 and expanded at the start of 2015 provides hassle free backup to LTO tape for anyone with valuable media that they need to store long term. Salon’s in-house custom built software ‘ARCHIE’ tracks every backup job from start to finish and provides customers with a full report after each session to aid in future data retrieval.

‘At the start of the year we upgraded our LTO capabilities to cope with the demand of modern day productions’ exclaims Salon MD Nick Long.

‘We have a series of automated LTO machines along-with our extremely comprehensive in-house system ARCHIE allowing us to turn around jobs quickly and efficiently’.

‘The Danish Girl’ provided Salon with over 100TB’s of media over the course of their shoot, every couple of days drives would arrive and be entered onto the ARCHIE system and queued up for LTO creation. Then, once complete (often within 24 hours or less) the original drives, the corresponding LTO’s and a full report (either via email or printed) would be provided.

‘The service takes away the worry and all importantly the time associated with creating tape backups. LTO creation used to cost a lot of money but using the latest technology coupled with our own fine tuned systems and workflows we have managed to get the cost down significantly ‘ adds Nick.


Salon’s ARCHIE service is available to anyone wishing to backup to LTO tape, whether it be a single tape requirement or a large scale backup.
