With increasing data volumes, organizations are looking for cost effective solutions to store data for the long term as well as to retain a copy of specific data sets. At the same time, the need to have a global view of all data - regardless of storage type, location, or on-prem or in the cloud - calls for a new way to address data management. The integration of PoINT Archival Gateway and Hammerspace Data Orchestration brings together the economic and technical benefits of a tape-based S3 object storage and a unified, global data environment.
The S3-to-tape solution PoINT Archival Gateway offers a highly scalable object storage that leverages the economic and ecological benefits of tape. Thus it meets the requirements for long-term archiving and cybercrime protection. PoINT Archival Gateway provides the characteristic advantages and security features of object storage, such as erasure coding, tagging and object locking in combination with tape. Additionally, PoINT Archival Gateway operates with only a small footprint: data is stored via S3 directly on tape, without the need for a hard disk buffer. The software supports all available tape storage products and tape formats (LTO, IBM) and is independent of storage hardware. The combination of PoINT Archival Gateway and Hammerspace Data Orchestration meets the requirements of long-term archiving, data protection and cost efficiency.
- Global view of data across all locations
Convert your data into a single, globally-available dataset with fast-as-local performance—while avoiding paying the time or operational penalties of moving data over distance.
- Scalable storage for large datasets
With datasets growing to multiple petabytes, the ability to cost-effectively scale storage for long-term archive is critical. The joint solution of Hammerspace and PoINT addresses this challenge.
- Security and Compliance
Companies can retain control over their data and its security when they store it “in-house”. The air gap characteristic of tape provides resilience against cyberattacks.
- Automated data orchestration
Overcome data gravity with automated, non-disruptive data orchestration globally for data at the edge, in your datacenters, and in the cloud.
- Cost effective solution
Bringing tape into your environment for specific datasets will lower operating and energy costs.
- Life Sciences
