Hie Electronics Announces Authorization to Operate (ATO) Granted by Department of Defense
ATO Granted to TeraStack Solution for all Defense Health Agency Automated Information Systems
McKinney, Texas — November 03, 2014 — Hie Electronics, a pioneer of innovation for long-term, scalable Active Archive™ and data storage solutions and the manufacturer of the TeraStack® Solution, announced today that it has been granted an Authorization to Operate (ATO) by the Department of Defense for all Defense Health Agency Automated Information Systems (DHA AIS) through March 2017.
Hie Electronics has integrated the TeraStack Solution, an award winning Active Archive data storage system designed and manufactured by the Company, for use as archive storage for digitized pathology slides, radiology pictures, and general patient records. The TeraStack Solution allows for up to 64 terabytes of data on online hard drives, 50-100 terabytes of data to be nearline accessible on Blu-ray optical media, and unlimited data to be stored offline in removable/remountable intelligent cartridges. The TeraStack Solution is an industry leader in energy efficiency by using a hybrid data architecture that moves fixed content onto lower cost storage tiers, coupled with Blu-ray media that is used to store the sleeping data, which eliminates the need for hard drives to constantly spin and consume energy.
“We are very pleased to be granted the authorization to operate within the Department of Defense Health Agency,” said Patrick Humm, Founder and President of Hie Electronics. “We believe that as both government and private pathology and radiology labs learn about the benefits for both total cost of ownership and energy efficiency, they will look for more opportunities to integrate our products into their existing data architecture.”
The TeraStack Solution can be used for medical industry applications as well as critical data backup, public and private cloud archiving, cold storage, digital asset management, film and video archiving, forensic evidence data storage, geospatial imaging data archiving and storage, and digital video surveillance storage.
