S1:Archive is an archive storage target designed to store data with integrity and maintain that integrity throughout its entire lifecycle. It also provides flexible at-rest data encryption and provides a migration-free future as you add newer higher-density media and upgrade to next-generation networks.
Data Integrity is Job #1
Upfront Data Integrity
S1:Archive’s “flash-first” design can receive data as fast as the network can send it while ensuring all writes are acknowledged from persistent media.
Long-Term Data Integrity
S1:Archive will detect a block error read and use the same world-class vRAID to rebuild data impacted by a failed block.
Operational Data Integrity
S1:Archive uses StorONE’s vRAID rapid recovery from flash (5 mins) or hard drive failure (2-3 hours). 20X Faster than competing systems.
Definable Data Immutability
S1:Archive supports both self-encrypting drives and provides volume-based software encryption. Customers can choose to encrypt the entire environment by using self-encrypting drives or selectively encrypt specific volumes. The choice is yours; select the method that makes the most sense for your use case.
S1:Archive is built to last. It can mix new higher density drives and use their total capacity without creating new LUNs or volumes.
Archive software needs to provide integrity, security, and longevity at the most minimal cost possible. To drive down costs while meeting these other demands requires efficient utilization of the resources and the ability to leverage the latest hardware innovations to their fullest extent. With S1:Archive, you can use almost all of your available capacity (90%+) and not waste 30% or more (that’s 300TB per PB wasted) on overhead.
Its RAID rebuild performance makes using 18TB+ drives realistic, reducing your cost per TB and data center footprint per TB.
S1:Archive also provides protocol flexibility. It can adapt to any access protocol you require. It simultaneously supports NFS, SMB, and S3 Object Storage.
