Hie Electronics, in scalable Active Archive data storage solutions and the manufacturer of the TeraStack Solution, has received a registration with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Center for Devices and Radiological Health.


Earlier this year the FDA published a final rule to define medical device data systems (MDDSs) and established regulatory requirements to be followed by manufacturers of such devices. The company's TeraStack Solution is a leading product platform for medical applications with large scale data requirements including, but not limited to, general medical records processing and archival 3D images, MRIs, CAT Scans, X-rays, ECGs and patient test data.

"We are pleased to have received an FDA registration for the TeraStack Solution," said Patrick Humm, Founder and President of Hie Electronics. "We believe our Active Archive system is the most innovative product on the market for long-term medical data processing because of its scalability and the broad array of applications it can serve."

The TeraStack Solution Active Archive data storage system can be used within an existing infrastructure to provide an Active Archive of data assets that are accessible instantly with online storage, or within 30-60 seconds if the files are nearline, or in 2-3 minutes if offline.

The TeraStack Solution is an Active Archive system that serves as a 'Data Center in a Box', providing an integrated Application Server with storage capability of up to 42 terabytes of online storage, 50 terabytes of nearline data and unlimited offline data storage. It is suited for businesses that push a large amount of data traffic through their IT infrastructure.

In addition to the medical industry applications of the TeraStack Solution, it can also be used for critical data processing, Active Archive backup, digital asset management, film and video archiving, forensic evidence data storage, geospatial imaging data archiving and storage, and as a digital video surveillance storage solution.
