Data Archive

Scale infinitely, regardless of data volume


With the tremendous data explosion in recent years, archiving data is becoming the Achilles heel for enterprises that need to protect and keep a wide range of valuable data and assets in a reliable “last copy” archive store. Archived data must be resilient and durable. 

But, challenges abound. Legacy storage is simply too limited. Regulatory compliance requires long term retention. Capacity needs to be sufficient for exponential growth. The solution needs to make economic sense. Costs need to be closer to tape and cloud-based cold storage, but with better access and SLAs.

Cost-effective with instant access to 10s of Petabytes

Scality NAS Archiver assesses data access patterns and highlights potential cost savings for IT. Then it moves inactive data from expensive Tier-1 network-attached storage (NAS) to more cost-efficient Scality RING archival storage that keeps data online and always accessible.

For all data moved from the NAS to RING, a super-optimized data protection strategy ensures a zero recovery point objective and zero recovery time objective. Moving dormant data to RING also lowers backup time and costs on the NAS.

  •  “We selected Scality because the RING satisfied our requirements for a software only, software-defined storage solution leveraging competitive commodity hardware; providing scalability; multiple storage interfaces including block, object, HDFS, and file; erasure-coding-based data protection; and ease of storage deployment,”

    Gary Grider Division Leader for High Performance Computing at Los Alamos
