Iron Mountain introduces Cloud Archive for long-term data preservation

Published: Tuesday, 03 May 2016 13:44

Iron Mountain has announced the launch of its new ‘Cloud Archive’, a cost-effective, scalable repository for organizations needing to protect and preserve data retained short or long term for compliance, legal or value-creation purposes.

Designed to scale as the volume of data grows, the solution is ideal for organizations needing offsite, pay-as-you-use archival storage with near-infinite scalability, where customer data remains secure, intact and easily accessible over the long term at Iron Mountain’s Underground Facility in Boyers, Pennsylvania.

Unlike on-premise disk and tape infrastructures, Iron Mountain Cloud Archive doesn’t require customer-owned storage equipment or archiving platforms, and it eliminates resources to manage tape- and disk-refresh life cycles, while avoiding the cost and hassle of a technology migration from one generation of tape or disk to another.

Archive is easy with an open and flexible platform-built using ECS technology that works with S3 API,OpenStack SWIFT, CAS, Atmos and cloud gateways like EMC CloudBoost, CloudArray and Isilon Cloud Pools technologies, or Nasuni, Panzura, Seven10 and CTERA.
