One rugged server

All audio is housed in a central location. With built-in redundancy, If the one drive fails, the server continues on without disruption. The server will sound an alarm and Smarts technicians are automatically notified.

Our system is designed to be robust and not fail easily. But eventually all systems can fail, which is why our system handles failure with minimal disruption to your operations with up to three tiers of defense:

  1. 1.

    Spare Tire

    An off-line spare hard drive is included. This “spare tire” allows the system to boot and grants remote access via internet to Smarts Broadcast Systems’ support technicians, who can then update software and return your station to normal operation while we prepare and send you a new main drive.

  2. 2.

    On-Site Backup

    Should the server fail entirely (say in a lightning strike), each Skyllette (audio appliance) contains yet another backup of all audio and database information. Smarts support personnel can make any Skyllette perform “double duty” and act as a server until the real server is repaired or replaced.

  3. 3.

    Off-Site Backup

    (Optional) You can set up an off-site backup server for Skylla database and audio duplication. In the event of a major catastrophe at the station, your audio files, Skylla database and even your Smarts SecGen traffic and billing data can be kept updated and backed up off-site.

    • Fully Automated

      You can think of it as a virtual satellite receiver, without the need of the satellite. Programming simply appears on your hard drive in time for you to play it to air. There’s no time spent manually downloading programs and dubbing them into the system. Just set SmartWeb to grab the files you want, and they will be there, week after week.

    • Many Uses

      There are many ways to use the system. For example, that weekly news feature can be automatically downloaded and placed into Skylla for later playback. Multi-hour features can be fetched automatically from the provider, saving station staffers valuable time.

      Smartweb can fetch content from shared folders on the Skylla server, making it easier for local content contributors to get material to air.

      Smartweb can also be used to upload material from the Skylla inventory to your web site. This hour's recorded local newscast becomes this hour's podcast, automatically.
