Solution Provides Permanent Optical “Cold Storage” for Archived Data
McKinney, TX — June 05, 2014 — Hie Electronics, a pioneer of innovation for long-term, scalable Active Archive™ data storage solutions and the manufacturer of the TeraStack® Solution, announced today the availability of a new bundled archive and backup suite, Enterprise TeraNimbus®, which was developed under a software licensing agreement with General Electric.
Enterprise TeraNimbus provides customers with a departmental deployable archive and backup capability. TeraNimbus uses industry-leading archive technology in its storage architecture. See http://www.hie-electronics.com/teranimbus.php for system specs, whitepapers and videos. The system uses patented technology for 50+ year data integrity. This same technology has previously only been available to Cloud corporate and government agency clients as an onsite offering. The TeraStack Solution is an industry leader in energy efficiency, 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.
Benefits of TeraNimbus over other Enterprise archive and backup options include:
• 100% data integrity.
• Easy access through web enabled client.
• Deployed as account specific drop box; could not be easier.
• Account Audit tracking: who touched what data when.
