This is a Press Release edited by StorageNewsletter.com on 2013.04.01
Quantum Corporation announced
that it has joined the Active Archive Alliance - a collaborative industry
association formed to educate end-user organizations on the evolving new technologies
that enable reliable, online and efficient access to their archived data.
"Having built out a
broad range of file system, object storage and tape solutions, we look forward
to working with other Alliance members to share ideas and help users create and
manage active archives that enable them to realize the full value of their
data," said Mark Pastor, strategic marketing at Quantum. "Active archives have varied access
requirements and new technologies like LTFS tape and next-gen object storage
will increasingly have a place as these archives grow to unprecedented levels
Organizations are archiving increasing amounts of data as they
grapple with data growth, compliance rules and the need to preserve content for
analysis and unforeseen future opportunities. As the volume of archive data has
grown, the challenge of accessing that data when needed has intensified. Active
archive solutions resolve this issue by turning offline archives into visible,
accessible extensions of online storage systems - enabling access to all archived data through a file system interface.
Quantum offers a range of products
built to support active archive needs:
Built on dispersed object storage technology, Lattus disk archives
offer scalability, greater durability and efficiency than
RAID, and low latency for predictably fast retrieval times in multi-petabyte
StorNext software and appliances can manage up to one billion
files and dozens of petabytes of tiered storage across primary disk, object storage
and tape libraries to address fast workflow
requirements. Supporting all major OSs and storage platforms, StorNext provides
file sharing and policy-based archiving.
With self-healing and self-monitoring features, the range of
Scalar enterprise, midrange and SMB tape libraries intelligently and reliably
manages and securely protects archived data. Quantum's recently announced
Scalar i6000 HD offers active-active robots and the industry's highest slot
density, and can scale to more than 75PB of capacity. In addition, the
company's Scalar LTFS appliance provides a NAS file system presentation for
accessing data archives on tape.
Quantum will showcase its latest Lattus, StorNext and Scalar
product offerings at the upcoming NAB conference.
Additionally, it will participate in the Active Archive Alliance booth at
the conference, which will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, April
