Assureon Private Blockchain enables organisations to protect and secure digital assets by storing data in an immutable data structure, utilises cryptography to secure transactions and relies on an automated integrity audit at the redundant sites to maintain data integrity and transparency. Combined with Assureon’s file fingerprinting and asset serialisation process, with metadata authentication and a robust consensus algorithm, Assureon Private Blockchain allows secure archiving of digital assets for long-term data protection, retention and compliance adherence.
The company has adopted the performance and low latency RoCE to eliminate the performance-robbing layers of the network stack. Together, the firm with RoCE ensures all customers have low latency, are regulatory compliant and that the solution is ready for the increasing data demands.
“Nexsan has a strong track record of creating products and services that capitalise on the advances in data archiving, security, protection and retrieval,” commented Surya Varanasi, CTO, StorCentric, parent company of Nexsan. “With the release of Assureon 8.3, we have implemented RoCE to provide over a 2x performance improvement and private blockchain technology for a secure, immutable data structure. Users are now able to quickly and efficiently retrieve data with a 40Gb RoCE connection between the Assureon server and Assureon Edge servers, and thereby accelerate access to archived storage securely.“
Assureon 8.3 offers benefits to customers including:
Virtual shortcuts that require zero disk space and reside purely in memory as reference points to physical files in the Assureon archive.
A 40GbE connection that provides fast data retrieval from the Assureon server.
Data is retrieved directly from user-space with minimal involvement of the OS and CPU.
In addition, zero-copy applications can retrieve data from the Assureon archive without involving the network stack.
Security, traceability, immutability, and visibility of data with Assureon Private Blockchain technology.
