In-House Big Data Archiving Is The Future

News Image
As rates of data creation accelerate exponentially, effective solutions to data archiving become not just urgent, but mandatory, writes Alan Hoggarth, Managing Director of Disk Archive Corporation.

Broadcast and media companies need to securely store and preserve increasingly large volumes of audio-visual content for longer periods of time.

The increase in storage requirements is driven by the need to preserve content in native formats for shelf life and repurposing, and tracking new standards (e.g. SD, HD and UHD resolutions) as they evolve, each with greater storage requirements than prior formats.

Hard disks offer a convenient solution, but conventional NAS and clustered storage is far too expensive to own and operate for large volumes of infrequently accessed storage.

Disk Archive is a hardware and big data infrastructure company that brings the latest advances in disk capacity and density to our storage system ALTO, the most cost-effective, secure and scalable offline storage platform on the market, perfect for all forms of media and broadcast content.

ALTO uses leading-edge drive technology and management to offer performance advantages and business benefits far beyond what is possible with traditional data tape or videotape storage.

Together with workflow and media management applications from over 30 world-class technology partners, ALTO is helping broadcasters and media companies around the world complete the transition to fully tapeless workflows.

ALTO is the only disk-based storage platform offering superior longevity, security and performance at a lifetime cost of ownership far lower than tape-based solutions, with dramatically lower power consumption and greatly extended disk life compared to conventional disk storage systems.

If you are rethinking your storage requirements, or considering another costly LTO migration, we would be pleased to answer questions and to explain how ALTO – the only future-proof archive and cold storage platform – can be game-changing for your organization or business.
