With the continued compounding effect of infrequently accessed data, organizations need to look beyond scaling infrastructure to intelligent data lifecycle management and sustainable cost while making sure their data remains secure. For these cold-archiving use cases, a two-tiered approach with server-based object storage and a tape object archive can bring many benefits, including the ability to:
--Economically achieve optimal price/performance for multi-petabyte environments
--Meet stringent security and compliance requirements by deploying a high-security air-gapped solution
--Satisfy corporate policies for long-term preservation of data on tape storage
In this Tech Tuesday webinar, Chris Kehoe, Fujifilm Head of infrastructure Engineering, joins Ryan Meek, Caringo Principal Solutions Architect, and Jose Marcos, Caringo Sales Engineer to discuss how to build a complete, on-prem object storage solution with Caringo Swarm and FUJIFILM Object Archive.
