Future-Proof Availability of Data

Data is an asset with its own lifecycle; it is created, consumed, and retained, sometimes indefinitely. Year-over-year data growth of over 40% is challenging organizations to find efficient ways to retain data throughout its lifecycle. Long-term retention requirements in industries such as Life Sciences, Media and Entertainment, Broadcasting, Healthcare, and Financial Services demand data to be available and secure; much of the data being stored is key to market differentiation, product and services support, and raw inputs from sensors, sequencers, cameras, and other devices. To future proof data availability, organizations need to ensure data integrity, infrastructure resiliency and scalability, and continuous and ubiquitous access to data.


ActiveScale Delivers

ActiveScale™ delivers. Dynamic Data Placement (DDP) and Dynamic Data Repair (DDR) are key to data’s long-term viability using erasure coding across drives, nodes, and sites; continuously monitoring the health of the data and its underlying infrastructure; and ongoing repair of data when errors are discovered. Object Lock and end-to-end encryption secure data in flight and in place. ActiveScale presents standard interfaces, S3 object storage and NFS, to provide confidence that data will remain accessible.

ActiveScale Use Cases

In a diverse range of industries spanning genomics and life sciences research, media and entertainment, autonomous vehicle development, and technical computing, ActiveScale addresses data preservation and availability challenges across numerous use cases:


Sensors, satellites, medical instruments, video devices, and computer simulators continuously create large data sets for use in data analytics, AI training, modeling and imaging, and computations. ActiveScale serves as the main data repository, providing an efficient way to keep data readily available for when it needs to be processed.


Genome sequencing, microscopy, and imaging studies created data that has long retention requirements. These may range from a few years to many decades. ActiveScale provides a secure, resilient repository where data is protected from silent bit-rot, accidental or malicious deletion, and unexpected disasters.


Movie studios and broadcasters create new video assets that can be repurposed over time. ActiveScale enables ongoing, seamless access to content in a resilient, secure repository.


Enterprise IT departments are seeking a long-term content repository with the flexibility to scale the infrastructure, protect data, and reduce financial burden for storing ever increasing amounts of data.


Surveillance video generates large data sets that are written once and may be read often or never. ActiveScale provides a scalable platform for surveillance video with high-throughput streaming capabilities for data that needs to be accessed and analyzed.


ActiveScale, a scalable data storage platform, is well positioned to store backup copies efficiently with built-in site recovery capabilities.

Featured Benefits

Capacity and Performance Efficiency

Sustained performance with large and small files without compromising utilization.

System Availability

Geo-spread system design efficiently disperses objects across three locations and ensures accessibility in case of a disaster.

Extreme Data Durability

Data protection with Dynamic Data Placement and Dynamic Data Repair uniquely places objects across systems for highest resiliency and ongoing monitoring and repair of errors.

Data Security

Advanced erasure coding, versioning, and dynamic monitoring and repair ensure data put in will be data read out years later.

Crown Media Selects Object Storage to Extend Online Storage for Content Explosion

“We have an essentially unlimited archive capacity that lets us bring back assets much faster than before—at disk speed. We’ve eliminated backup but have much better protection—there are always at least two copies of the assets, and we have full site loss protection.”
