Object Storage

Infinite. Online. Durable. Cost Effective.

Keeping “Data Forever” Can Get Costly

Some of our customers have many petabytes of unstructured data – hi-res video content, satellite images, CAD drawings, scientific research data, or other IoT data – that they need to keep forever.

And the value of that data is persistent.  It needs to be stored so that it can be analyzed, monetized, or otherwise reused in the future.

Problem is, it can’t be stored on flash forever (too expensive), and in some cases, the latencies of tape may not be acceptable.

Create an Active Archive with Object Storage

Create an Active Archive with Object Storage

Quantum object storage meets the extreme scalability, durability and access requirements of large-scale, long-term archives.  It is durable online storage that scales to hundreds of petabytes more economically than primary storage, with better performance than tape. 

Erasure-coding technology is used to store objects on disk in the most efficient way, reducing storage costs and providing a self-protecting active archive. 

It’s the perfect solution for an active archive – for your digital media assets, for your critical scientific research data, or maybe just for creating a big data lake.
