Events 2020

Webinar: Archiving and protecting S3 objects on tape

Object storage is highly available due to redundant components, erasure coding and replication. The high availability protects against hard disk failures and up to the failure of complete data center locations. However, there is no protection against accidental or malicious deletion of objects. Only a backup copy protects against data loss. At the same time inactive data consumes cost-intensive storage space.

In our live demo we present PoINT Archival Gateway which is a tape-based S3 object storage. A typical use case is protection and offloading disk-based object storage. We will show you in a few steps how to write objects via S3 API to tape and thus store data extremely cost effective.

data://disrupted 2020
10/13 – 10/15

As a meeting point for providers and users of enterprise data storage solutions, the Storage Forum took place for the first time in 2019 in Leipzig. This year the event will be organized as an online conference under the title “data://disrupted“. It will include three live days and an online platform that will be available for the participants during one year.

In his presentation “Tape-based object storage as S3 storage class and cloud backup“ Thomas Thalmann will discuss the technical concept and the advantages of a tape-based object storage as a cost-effective backup for growing data volumes on hard disk-based object storage and at cloud service providers. The presentation will be broadcast live on 10/14 at 11 a.m. CET. You can register for free on the data://disrupted website. You will also find further information about the conference and the schedule there.

Webinar: Tape Integrated Object Storage as an Active Archive

PoINT joined the Active Archive Alliance in June 2020. The Alliance provides vendor neutral information about modern active archiving strategies for growing data volumes.

In the webinar “Tape Integrated Object Storage as an Active Archive” Thomas Thalmann (PoINT), Shawn Brume (IBM) and Rich Gadomsky (FUJIFILM) explain how tape libraries can be integrated as object storage into the storage infrastructure. By means of different use cases, the webinar shows how tape based object storage is suitable for active archiving.

You can view the webinar here on the Active Archive Alliance website.

StorageForum Leipzig
11/28 - 11/29

Storage-Forum Leipzig 2019

The StorageForum in Leipzig on November 28th and 29th, 2019 focused on topics related to data storage, archiving and backup. It offered lectures, use cases and an exhibition.

Our presentation dealt with the immense growth of inactive and unstructured data. We showed how you can solve this challenge with the help of HSM and ILM in combination with cloud/object-based technologies. Integrating different S3 storage classes and Erasure Coding protected tape storage systems, you benefit in terms of costs, data security and scalability. A video recording of the presentation is available here.

For further information about the StorageForum see here.


Cloud Technology & Services Conference
Bonn, Hanau, Hamburg, Munich

Cloud Technology & Services Conference 2019

The Cloud Technology & Services Conference took place for the 13th time this year. It focused on the trends of the “Journey to Cloud”. Object storage is gaining in importance regarding workloads in analytics, IoT, archiving, Backup and Sync & Share. The increase in use cases leads to an increase in required storage capacity and thus to a rise of complexity and costs. Although most of the data is inactive and does not require the functional benefits of disk-based object storage, they often occupy the best part of the capacity of the systems.

With our partner Quantum we gave a speech about “The Hyperscalers as pioneers – Tape as object storage to extend your cloud”, presenting an approach to solve these storage problems by efficiently using different classes of object storage.

We presented in our session „Managing storage classes for infrequently accessed data“ the flexibility and use cases of our solutions to support the exchange of experience and information of the organizer DLR (Deutsche Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt e.V.). We provided recommendations for strategy and optimization regarding unstructured data and HSM.
