Active Archive Solutions for Storage & Disaster Recovery
XenData is a global provider of cutting edge data storage solutions optimized for creative video, medical imaging, video surveillance and businesses with high volumes of large files.
ALT Systems is a XenData media systems integration partner.
XenData offers Active Archive solutions based on LTO data tape, optical disc cartridges and hybrid cloud.
Active archives are a tier of storage that approaches the performance of high-speed editorial storage, but at a significantly lower cost per TB.
XenData provides three different active archive storage options:
- LTO Archive – Linear Tape Optical storage offers a standard file system interface accessible via SMB, NFS or FTP, so you can read and write just like a local disk volume or network attached storage.
- Optical Archive – Files are saved to Sony Optical Disc Archive (ODA) cartridges for secure, long-term retention of petabytes of secure storage.
- Hybrid Cloud – XenData Cloud File Gateway (CFG) software creates a hybrid cloud Active Archive infrastructure as a gateway to cloud object storage, but with most frequently accessed data on a local disk volume.
XenData also offers cloud-based synchronization services that provide file sharing across multiple locations and create a global file system. This boosts the productivity of distributed teams by enabling them to seamlessly share and synchronize files across all locations.
XenData S3 Interface for LTO Tape
XenData now offers an S3 interface for all LTO archive products, enabling the tape environment to be mapped or mounted as a drive.
Sold as a subscription, tape libraries appear like private clouds with remote access via HTTPS, as well as traditional on-premises means such as NFS and SMB.
