TeraNimbus Now Available in Dallas Metro Data Centers
McKinney, Texas — November 13, 2013 — Hie Electronics, a pioneer of innovation for long-term, scalable data storage solutions and the manufacturer of the TeraStack® Solution, announced today the availability of a new cloud-based archive and backup service called TeraNimbus™, which was developed under a software licensing agreement with General Electric.
TeraNimbus provides customers with public and private cloud-based premium archive and backup services. TeraNimbus uses industry-leading archive technology in its storage architecture. See http://www.hie-electronics.com/products/teranimbus/ 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 corporate and government agency clients as an onsite offering.
TeraNimbus was launched on July 18, 2013 at the US Air Force Regional Telepathology Transition Summit in San Antonio, Texas and is now deployed within DataBank’s Tier-3+ data center located in Richardson, Texas. “DataBank has a proven infrastructure that will provide our TeraNimbus customers with a secure facility and network connectivity that is unrivaled,” said Patrick Humm, Founder and President of Hie Electronics. “We now have a premium public or private cloud-based option for archive and backup that provides the same long-term data agnostic data integrity as our regularly installed systems.”
TeraNimbus™ can be customized based on the requirements of the user and can be configured as an onsite private cloud, hybrid cloud, or an offsite datacenter-based cloud archive and backup platform.
Benefits of TeraNimbus over other cloud-based archive and backup options include:
• 100% data integrity.
• Easy access through web enabled client.
• Deployed as account specific drop box; could not be easier.
• Premium service for long-term backup and archiving with no data migrations.
• Storage architecture built on Blu-ray technology, phase change, not magnetic, longest life media available (50+ years).
• Private, hybrid and virtual cloud configurations available.
• Scalable based on customer needs — simple billing
• Customer-friendly TeraNimbus software provides an easy and reliable interface.
• Flexible pricing based on storage usage
• State of the art data center locations in several virtually disaster free locations.
• Fully meshed communications backbone architecture for reliable network services.
“We are pleased to be able to deploy this new offering in a world-class facility,” added Humm. “Our TeraNimbus software provides a user-friendly interface to the client and will allow clients needing an archive and backup solution to have a scalable premium offering that provides 50 plus year data integrity, but more importantly, peace of mind that their data is safe from migrations, de-duplication processes, degradation and loss.”
