Our unique archiving approach is based on the established Software-Defined Storage (SDS) concept. To enable you to flexibly expand storage capacity, this involves decoupling the storage software from the underlying hardware.
The advantage of this open approach is that it is based on industry standards, x86 hardware, and open interfaces. By leveraging the latest developments in industry-standard server and storage hardware, Software-Defined Archiving enables you to take advantage of the latest hardware improvements and price reductions over time. This results in tremendous total cost advantages over proprietary systems and the public cloud. Software-Defined Archiving also allows you to tie your existing infrastructure to the archiving software. Depending on the solution used, this can range from DAS, NAS, SAN, to object and cloud storage systems.
With SDA you get a lean infrastructure, which can react flexibly to changes and easily adapt to new requirements at the same time. This allows you to use existing resources more efficiently, expand more easily, migrate data more simply, and centralize the archive.
