Data Archive Storage

Extend the Life
of Your Data.

Archive means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. At Quantum, archive is more than long-term data retention; it’s about business enablement and extending the life of your data to move your business forward, and of course delivering the most cost-effective solution specific to your long-term data and content retention needs.

DO MORE with Your Data

Business units are not only generating more content, they want to keep it accessible—perhaps forever. While viewed as a cost-center, IT is also a key part of a company’s growth. From discovering future cures, to remonetizing video content, to business analysis and trending for competitive differentiators, new archiving workflows can:

  • Give business line owners or specific
    departments direct access to archived content.
  • Enable content analysis, repurposing, and remonetization.
  • Create long-term or forever archives while eliminating data migration pains.
  • Enable global sharing and collaboration.

Quantum Archive Storage Technologies

Smart and Simple Archive

Artico™ NAS Appliance is purpose-built to scale from small environments to petabyte scale. It supports a wide array of archive storage targets making it easy to integrate into your target environment. Its disk cache makes it ideal for active workflows, and with StorNext inside, it can intelligently move data from active disk to archive storage delivering the best TCO model for storing, accessing and protecting data.

Large-scale Extended
Online Storage

Lattus is durable online storage that scales to hundreds of petabytes—more economical than primary disk, with better performance and lower latency than tape. Lattus is ideal for large-scale data repositories that have unpredictable access patterns, such as high-performance, low-latency, “I don’t know when I will need it, but when I do, I need it now” access.

Long-term Archives

Tape continues to be the lowest-cost, high-reliability technology for archive and long-term data storage. Scalar® Libraries can dramatically improve the security and manageability of your archive, disaster recovery, and enterprise backup processes. Designed to grow with your needs, all Scalar tape libraries include embedded iLayer™ software to provide best-in-class management, monitoring, data integrity and data security capabilities.

Departmental, Drag
& Drop Archives

Scalar LTFS appliances allow you to access your Scalar tape library as a NAS file share, providing drag-and-drop functionality to a tape-based active archive. Ideal for archiving static content—such as videos, scanned documents, and engineering/architectural files—Scalar LTFS frees up valuable primary storage space and reduces overall storage.

The New Archive Workflow

Instead of treating all data the same, the new archive workflow removes unstructured data
from primary storage and moves it out of the backup process onto its own storage tier and
workflow. The new archive workflow not only enables business growth by making data more
accessible for a longer period of time, but it can also reduce storage costs up to 70 percent.

Quantum can help you rethink your data protection and retention workflow by applying
the right technology to the right data at the right time. Tiered storage, new extended
online storage approaches, and advanced data management technologies can manage
the entire data life cycle.
