FUJIFILM And Tiger Bridge Offer Archive Solution
FUJIFILM’s Object Archive.
FUJIFILM has announced a joint marketing alliance with Tiger Technology to provide business customers with a long-term, secure, and scalable storage management solution.
Integrating FUJIFILM’s Object Archive software with Tiger Technology’s Tiger Bridge software “offers active archiving to tape while preserving the entire chain of custody”. The resulting environment is said to provide a complete archiving solution to simplify the management and archive of unstructured data, and its movement into low-cost, long-term storage.
The Tiger Bridge solution monitors and manages selected areas of the local file system, then identifies data based on metadata attributes to move it to the FUJIFILM Object Archive platform. Aging content can be actively archived - meaning that aged files no longer reside on local disk space, yet remain fully visible and accessible to users and applications. Once this content is archived, FUJIFILM Object Archive software provides a secure, long-term archival copy on tape, with a physical air-gap, while permitting continued access to the data. This provides immutable data copies that can help prevent a ransomware or cryptolock attack on a network.
“Successful long-term archiving is achieved when you have confidence in immediately accessing your data, even when today’s technology fails you,” says Lance Kelson, EVP at Tiger Technology. “Using an open tape format is the essential first step, but one must still be wary of archiving software that encapsulates your content in a proprietary wrapper. The Tiger Bridge solution stores files in their native format when moving data to FUJIFILM Object Archive software, thereby preserving the chain of custody and avoiding vendor lock.”
