iCAS - Flexible Long Term Archiving of Digital Data
What is iCAS?
iTernity Compliant Archive Software (iCAS) is an open, flexible, and expandable long-term archiving solution for securing and protecting your business data. iCAS is a software that sits between archiving applications (DMS/ECM systems, PACS etc.) and NAS or SAN storage systems. The patented CSC technology of iCAS offers enormous flexibility and an easy integration into existing IT infrastructure. Data is archived into Content Storage Containers (CSC), which are secured against manipulations and deletion. The CSCs can be stored on standard storage systems (NAS or SAN) from any vendor. Additional options to encrypt and compress data offer more security and space optimization.
Good reasons for iCAS
iCAS can be used with any storage hardware (no vendor lock) and enables seamless integration as well as smooth data migrations between different technologies. The integration of Cloud storage solutions into the archiving concept with iCAS is no problem.
- provides maximum data security with reliable features for legally compliant, certified archiving
- iCAS meets all requirements of a future-proof archiving solution
- Conformity of iCAS with statutory guidelines – such as SOX, SEC 17a-4, GODB, GOBS, AO, Basel II, GeBüV, OR etc.
- iCAS is assessed and certified by the financial auditing company KPMG, amongst others

Additionally iTernity engaged Cohasset Associates Inc. for an independent assessment to evaluate the capabilities of iCAS to meet the storage related and audit history-related requirements of SEC Rule 17a-4 and CFTC Rule 1.31.

To meet all legal requirements for compliant archiving of business-related data, the complete archiving process in the organization needs an integrated design and must be well documented.
iCAS is one of the most economical long term archiving solutions, achieved through several key factors:
- Independence from particular, proprietary storage systems
- Transparent licensing models
- Investment protection through the ability to use existing IT infrastructure (storage systems, backup and recovery structures, …)
Besides the simple implementation and fast migrating processes lead to huge TCO savings.
iTernity works together with renowned technology partners, to offer flexible,
secure and economical solutions. For example, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and iTernity distribute the HPE & iCAS - a combination of iCAS software with various storage products from HPE. The distribution is on a global scale, through HPE and partners.
iTernity is a VMware Enterprise partner. Many customer use iCAS implemented in a virtual appliance on VMware.
Citrix, XEN and Hyper-V also offer support to run as a virtualized platform.
