ENERGY-EFFICIENT DATA ARCHIVING SOLUTIONS
Organisations safeguard their data to prevent data disaster. The world's need for data archiving is ever-growing, placing more demand on organisations to ensure reliable archiving technology. A data archive is a storage device, which is used to house data for long-term preservation. Data archives help in storing your x-ray photographs, financial records, HD videos, law files and CCTV footage for many years at infinite capacity and a cost-effective price. Used to store and protect historical data, data archives make data available on a day-to-day basis and also as a future reference.
Eye2Eye offers two types of software and hardware solutions which meet all the needs for data archiving -
Online Archiving and Optical Archiving.
At Eye2Eye, our online archiving services reduce the time and cost involved in capacity planning, storage management and provisioning. Our online archive storage archives are designed for safe and secure long-term storage of data.
We use secure online archiving as a solution to archive active data. Since 80% of data is unstructured, including medical records, JPEGS and emails, as opposed to structured databases that data needs to be secured, decreasing storage bloat and also enabling regulator compliance. Additionally, hard disks are fast replacing optical media and tapes in all phases of data archiving.
Assureon is an archive storage system that is ideal for primary storage optimization, regulatory and corporate compliance, and the secure, long-term retention of files. Assureon reduces the total storage architecture by as much as 66%, by migrating data from tier-1 primary storage to more cost-effective and efficient tier-2-managed storage archive.
By adding a layer of compliance that provides authorization, audit trails and unique protection against deletions or changes, Assureon protects the authenticity, access and integrity of files on a continuous basis, meeting or exceeding all regulatory compliance requirements. Continuous archiving replaces backup and eliminates the need to restore data, while built-in mirroring replaces expensive disk and tape backup. From images to emails, office files to other fixed content, Assureon's WORM capability, self-auditing, self-healing, replication and file fingerprinting provide you with a different kind of storage experience - and the kind of security you need to protect your active data.
File Fingerprinting: Fingerprints using both MD5 and SHA1 hash of content and metadata, insuring history and contents cannot be altered after the fact.
File Redundancy: Makes two copies of the file and its fingerprint are stored in a separate RAID disk set either in the same system or a remote one.
File Serialization: Serial numbers are assigned to each individual file to ensure no files are changed, missing, or inappropriately added
Secure Time Stamp: Use of a global, redundant, secure time source using Stratum Level 1 hardware time sources to ensure accurate time stamp
Auto File Repair: Continually verifies against fingerprints and repair using copies and safeguarded by RAID disk arrays for days or even decades
Regulatory Compliance: Governmental and Corporate compliance of HIPAA, GLBA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP), SEC 17A-4 and PCI DSS
Secure Cloud Archive: Files are individually encrypted with its own AES-256 key to provide separation, security and reporting of data for each client, enabling easy import into billing systems
Storage Optimization: Archiving unstructured and infrequently used data frees up primary data and dramatically reducing the size, time and cost of the backup process
Data Longevity: Ensures adherence to guidelines for data retention, disposition, privacy, protection, chain of custody, litigation readiness and risk mitigation
Eye2Eye offers a solution for those who are looking for a robust data archiving platform. Our Perennity Archive Edition has a direct output to the Rimage Publishing Systems. With these devices, the off-line archival and retrieval process can be easily automated. Optical discs will be written whenever certain criteria are met, such as the size of a folder, the presence of a specific file (trigger) or a latency time. One or more copies can then be produced and they will be printed with a unique (customizable) label using either thermal or inkjet technology.
Files that have been written out to optical discs can then be deleted from the file server, freeing up space; they can also be left intact (but will not be eligible for migration again) or they can be moved to NAS, hard-disk, CD/DVD/Blu-ray library... All archiving operations can be logged into a database. A user friendly graphical interface will help you manage and monitor the backup, archive & restore operations.
Optical Archiving - Automated off-line archiving and backup to CD, DVD and Blu-ray
The growth of data on a massive scale and the pressing requirement for additional storage has increased the need for optical archiving. Optical archives can meet storage requirements by transferring data from online to offline storage capacities, thereby making way for new data.
They also reduce storage management costs by logistical and affordable data management systems. Further benefits of optical data storage include reduction in storage costs, decreased risk of data loss, durability, compatibility and long-term data retention.
Eye2Eye offers a solution to those who are looking for a robust data archiving platform using Perennity Archive Edition Software and Rimage Production System.
