Artico Archive Gateway


What is Artico Archive Gateway?

Artico™ Archive Gateway provides a flexible, low-cost entry point for archive, with the ability to scale to store petabytes of data as demand grows. Powered by StorNext® advanced data management policies, Artico stores and retains data in a tiered storage system that intelligently places the data on the right technology at the right time, both on-premise or in the cloud, providing the lowest TCO model for storing, accessing and protecting data.

Archiving data reduces pain and cost associated with data growth.

Rather than spending more on expensive primary and backup storage to accommodate data growth, move data to protected archive or extended online storage. Your data can then be accessed and protected on less expensive storage without disrupting your day to day workflow. As data is moved to archive storage it is no longer part of the regular backup process, so there is much less data to back up and backups take much less time. The backup window that was out of control is once again manageable. Along with smaller backups comes lower investment.

Combine disk cache with lower cost storage.

You can adjust how long data remains on Artico’s internal disk storage, providing performance and cost controls to meet your specific needs. Artico integrates with lower cost storage tiers, including cloud, object storage and tape, for cost management and integrated data protection.

Configuration choices deliver incredible flexibility.

Artico is easy to deploy, manage, and scale. Start small and add storage as archive content grows. Add cloud or change cloud providers, add object storage or a new tape library without impacting how users or applications access and find their files. And support for users regardless of operating system (Linux, UNIX, Mac and Windows) makes Artico the easy to manage archive.

NAS connect. Integrated Protection and Tiering. Cloud, Object Storage or Tape.

Artico allows you to set policies that control data movement from internal disk to public cloud via FlexTier, Lattus™ object storage or Scalar® tape libraries—the choice is yours, and the NAS access remains the same. And data protection policies ensure archived content is protected, easily without the cost or complexity of traditional backup processes. The entire solutions are designed, tested qualified and backed by Quantum’s 35 years of storage expertise.
