Best of Show: RCS Disaster Recovery

Put the cloud to work to protect your digital on-air assets

We are featuring the products that won the Radio World Best of Show Award at the recent NAB Show. Winners were chosen by a panel of radio engineers and RW editorial staff for their innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry. 

Software company RCS has been helping advance radio’s familiarity with and working knowledge of the cloud. The RCS Disaster Recovery solution is a natural application of those concepts. It is intended to help stations get back on the air quickly and efficiently when natural disaster or viruses take down their IT infrastructure.

“Unlike other automation systems that require multiple external pieces of software, RCS Cloud is a true disaster recovery cloud solution, written for and on Amazon Web Services, following best practices and securities,” the company explains.

It backs up your audio, logs, metadata and SQL backups securely with Zetta’s Site Replication service.

“We’ve also incorporated business-friendly workflows. For example, if you have a remote talent without VPN access, utilize RCS Cloud’s empty voice track positions, already built into your everyday clock, to voice track using RCS Cloud’s two-factor authentication to forward their voice tracks to your local Zetta system.”
