Data archive

Scale infinitely, regardless of data volume

Scality reduces storage costs, improves data durability and eliminates silos

Two-thirds of data stored on primary storage goes untouched, which results in a monumental waste of resources. Combined with the tremendous data explosion, archiving data can break the bank.

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. Regulatory compliance requires long-term retention. Capacity needs to be sufficient for exponential growth.

Cost-effective with instant access to tens of petabytes

Scality file and object storage protects and keeps a wide range of valuable data and assets in a reliable “last copy” archive store at a cost 60% less than traditional storage.

Scality NAS Archiver is a special feature within Scality RING that assesses data access patterns and highlights cost savings. It then moves inactive data from expensive tier-1 network-attached storage (NAS) to more cost-efficient archival storage that keeps data online and always accessible. 

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

“The Scality RING solution helped achieve continued reductions in price-per-gigabyte and price-per-IOPS costs.”

Andrei Gasheyev, Internet Services Architect
