Image repository/deduplication server JPG GIF PNG

Posted on 2012-09-05

First off let me start by saying that Im not even sure if what I am asking is possible but I will try to explain as best I can.

We have several shared drives throughout our company. I have been pulling information from these shares and a large majority of our storage space is being use to hold images jpg, gif, and png mostly. Alot of these images are stored at the camera native resolution. Most are around 5mb and up.

We have shares spread across both windows servers and an EMC NAS box at our corporate office. I am looking for any reccomendations of an enterprise class product that can be used to consolidate, categorize, archive, dedupe, and possibly shrink all of these images.

Ideally what I am looking for is a product similar to email archiving products where all the image files are stored in a cerntal repository, shortcutted/deduped to save space, and made searchable.

I dont even know where to begin with this request so I am hoping someone else has some ideas.

    I THINK you're looking for a Digital Asset Management System - I don't know the sector well, but years ago where I used to work, they used Cumulus by Canto.

    I previously wrote an article addressing the use of UBCD4WIN and SARDU. All are great, but I have always been an advocate of SARDU. Recently it was suggested that I go back and take a look at Easy2Boot in comparison.
