Extracting Value From Old and New Data

OvationData helps organizations preserve their data -- which may be recorded on everything from paper and tape to hard disk drives -- and extract actionable insights from that data by converting it into a format for ready access and analysis. Recently, the company decided that it wanted to do more for its customers: enable them to store their data in a more cost-effective, turnkey manner that wouldn't require additional help from in-house IT personnel. It then selected Quantum to provide the storage infrastructure and expertise to launch a private cloud, storage-as-a-service offering.

Enabling Cost-Effective Data Preservation and Ready Access

OvationData chose to build its new cloud service on Quantum's StorNext scale-out storage platform, using a multitier architecture featuring a combination of StorNext QXS high-speed disk, next-generation Lattus™ Object Storage and StorNext AEL tape archive. By leveraging the data management features of StorNext -- including its automated, policy-driven tiering software -- OvationData can apply the right storage technology at the right time. Archiving data on disk, object storage or tape will allow OvationData's customers to control costs and scale to meet data growth demands:

  • StorNext QXS disk storage delivers the high bandwidth and low latency often needed to support seismic analysis on extremely large datasets.
  • StorNext's automated tiering capabilities accelerate the process of moving data into and out of archive storage. Customers can also perform this task manually through StorNext's APIs, which allow for rapid data retrieval, even if the data is stored offline.
  • Lattus Object Storage enables users to extend online storage with a massively scalable online tier and spread data across different geographic locations to protect it in the event of a disaster.
  • The Extended Data Life Management (EDLM) feature of the StorNext AEL system economically preserves data integrity for long-term data retention.
