STORAGE INDEPENDENT ARCHITECTURE
Do you Need a solid & secure media workflow for your existing central storage? Or are you looking for a new IT storage and want to add award-winning media workflows on top of it? Strawberry seamlessly integrates with the majority of professional IT storages systems.
When you work with sensitive client content, you most likely struggle with manual storage access rights management for dozens or even hundreds of users. With Strawberry, storage access rights are driven automatically based on each users project permissions. This means that database and storage access is controlled from one central spot and on demand. Strawberry can also leverage your existing LDAP or Active Directory services for authentication.
One of the most common pitfalls in file-based workflow is duplication. Because of fear of deletion, editors tend to copy media from other projects into their own project folders. This can result in having the same file on the central storage multiple times. Strawberry completely eliminates this issue by linking files on the storage level without duplicating them, even across projects and multiple applications. Strawberry also keeps track of which files are actually used and prevents deletion of these files until the last instance is gone. Storage utilization is drastically improved.
What content can be deleted? What can be archived? Not sure? The good news is, you are not alone! People make mistakes and often these mistakes result in loss of production content. Strawberry’s linking functionality ensures that when content is deleted from one project, it is still available in the other projects in which it was used. Furthermore, Strawberry has a built-in deletion protection layer that automatically keeps track of deleted files and safely stores them in a recycle location on your storage. when a file is missing, it can be easily picked up from the recycle location and brought back into the project.
