Long-term media archival needs have changed dramatically. Media files have increased dramatically in size making tape retrieval very inefficient.
Your workflow requires you to access, find and leverage data on demand. You need a manageable, low-cost and efficient storage platform… dense, low-power storage that is designed for this type of work case.
For example, in an ideal typical environment you would have a high-performance storage system that has an active working set of data and a secondary system that is extremely dense, but maybe not as performant. Those two systems will automatically communicate with each other and be managed under a single user interface. Less utilized (and archival) data can move to the slower system.
The myRack Manager makes it very easy to move data, forecast and visually identify how your data is being used and accessed. We provide additional virtual archival cloud storage in our private, nationwide network.
