Object Storage for Private Cloud
Object Storage for Private Cloud
ActiveScale™ delivers security, resiliency, and accessibility to your data at scale.
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. 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.
Key Technical Differentiators
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:
Capacity and Performance Efficiency
Sustained performance with large and small files without compromising utilization.
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.
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.”
