'Big data' management for SME and SMB

RNT Rausch + PoINT Software & Systems

'Big Data' and the 'uncontrolled growth of data' – these phrases quickly bring up petabytes and exabytes. What’s already a standard for large enterprises is also relevant for smaller businesses because the same rules apply: With every insight you get from your data, you’re able to stop campaigns that don’t work or strategies that don’t deliver and secure a fair return on your investments. However, data volumes that are in the TB range seem to be less spectacular but remain equally important while the challenges and cost associated with data growth remain the same for all company sizes.

In this webinar PoINT and RNT Rausch will be presenting use cases for big data management in the TB range. Let’s have a look at an architecture for a long-term secure archiving strategy that gives you enterprise class features and fits your budget.

Speakers: Thomas Thalmann, PoINT Software & Systems GmbH and Graham Norbury, RNT Rausch GmbH

Webinar: Tape meets S3 - Tape based Object Storage

PoINT Archival Gateway & Overland-Tandberg NEO Tape Libraries

LTO tape technology is more attractive than ever. High storage capacity at low cost is the ideal answer to the enormous data growth. Thanks to "Air-Gap", data is also stored very securely and, if desired, immutably. In the joint webinar of Overland-Tandberg and PoINT we will show you how to make tape technology available to numerous applications by means of a standardized S3 API interface. With the software solution PoINT Archival Gateway you can transform an Overland-Tandberg Tape Automation into an S3 object store for backup and archiving of S3 objects with just a few clicks.

Live Demo: Replication and Migration of Files and Objects in S3 Buckets

If you rely on object storage you are confronted with the question of a suitable security concept for large volumes of data. Our new software product PoINT Data Replicator enables replication and migration of files or objects to a S3 Cloud/Object Storage. Thus, the replication can e.g. be performed as S3-to-S3 object replication between any S3 capable source and target buckets. In our live demo on 26th of January at 4 pm CET we will show you how replication with PoINT Data Replicator works and how our software supports you in implementing hybrid and multi-cloud approaches for data protection.

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. In 2020 the event was organized as an online conference under the title “data://disrupted“. It included three live days and an online platform that was be available for the participants during one year.

In his presentation “Tape-based object storage as S3 storage class and cloud backup“ Thomas Thalmann discussed 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.

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.

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.

DLR - HSM User Konferenz 2019
06/05 - 06/07

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.
