Easy to use software for the backup of digital content to local and network storage volumes (including HDD, SDD, NAS and SAN). Optional LTFS version for writing to Tape.
YoYottaID has three steps for an easy backup; Select Media Source, Setup Backup Destinations, Start Backup.
With YoYottaID it's even quicker next time you use your media, as YoYottaID remembers your Backup volumes and folders. With built in Project and Metadata Store, all media metadata is stored in a local database. Use YoYottaID to catalog your drives, volumes and tapes.
YoYottaID stores full media metadata including codec, resolution, duration. It's quick to locate media and you can see where it's stored, you can open a virtual folder showing all the media from your search, in one place. You can create PDF reports from searches, handy for giving the producer a list of shoot durations for all media types.
YoYotta's software runs on Apple Mac hardware (10.9.5 or 10.10.2 recommended). On a production use a MacMini or Retina MacBook Pro. Use an iMac or MacPro in a cutting room or post house. Connect using USB3 to Media Readers and Thunderbolt to RAID storage.
YoYottaID is fast and secure - As soon as camera cards or drives are connected they will appear in the Media table.
Span large backups across multiple volumes, disks and tapes - if you start a large backup or archive that won't fit on a single volume, YoYottaID will intelligently fill each volume without splitting shots, giving unlimited backup size. You can keep adding volumes until the backup is complete.
For multiple media and backups, cards can be copied to multiple backup destinations simultaneously - copy multiple cards at once, or add them to a card for sequential backup. You're only limited by the speed of the connected storage.
YoYottaID Automation makes using a Tape Library to backup your SAN even easier, without needing to manually swap tapes. Each backup is independently verified, media cards can now be ejected and removed as soon as verifying starts, all reducing the verification time.
Organising your media is easy to with YoYottaID - make consistent folders based on project, day, date, camera and media names. This will make life easy throughout your project - presets are even automatically recalled for different camera types.
In addition to YoYottaID, there is YoYottaID LTFS, which can archive to two standalone LTO drives, quickly creating industry standard archives in the LTFS format, on LTO-5 or LTO-6 media. YoYottaID can also name, format, mount and repair tape archives.
YoYottaID Automation adds control of up to four drives and an/or a Quantum, HP, IBM, or Tandberg Tape Library. Both the LTFS and Automation options remember the health and contents of every tape created so later on you can search to find the location of shots.
