McKinney, Texas — October 23, 2012 — 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 it will attend the e-Records Conference 2012 in Austin, Texas on November 1, 2012.
Hie Electronics will provide potential customers with e-records data storage needs with a view of the TeraStack Solution, an award winning Active Archive™ data storage system designed and manufactured by the Company. The TeraStack Solution allows for application hosting, 50-100 terabytes of data to be nearline accessible on Blu-ray optical media, and up to 42 terabytes of data on online hard drives. 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.
“In today’s electronic information environment, e-records are critical in almost any public or government sector organization and we believe our product is a market leader for long-term data storage and archiving,” said Patrick Humm, Founder and President of Hie Electronics. “We have considerable experience in archiving organization-critical records and making sure they are available for recall for 50-100 years,” he added.
The main focus for the Conference is to provide an educational opportunity for Texas government by bringing together staff responsible for, and interested in, records management and information technology.
In addition to government sector applications, the TeraStack Solution can be used for film and video archiving, medical industry applications as well as critical data backup, digital asset management, forensic evidence data storage, geospatial imaging data archiving and storage and digital video surveillance storage.
