Free White Paper Download: The Digital Age Trapped in an 8 Track World, Eliminate Tape with Assureon

By Joe Austin

The Assureon disk archive overcomes performance and data integrity issues related to tape archiving while greatly reducing cost and complexity with infrastructure consolidation and automated management

Tape has been a standard data storage medium for more than 50 years, but that era is winding down. The capabilities of tape have been outpaced by mammoth increases in corporate data, the recovery and data integrity demands of regulatory compliance and the challenge of simplifying, automating and consolidating the data protection infrastructure in a restrictive IT budget environment.

The Assureon disk archive overcomes all the nagging performance and data integrity issues related to tape archiving while greatly reducing cost and complexity with infrastructure consolidation and automated management.

Magnetic tape as a data storage technology is approaching the end of its useful life. In the past, the limited volume of data made tape sensible, however, its functionality has been overrun by historic data growth and a new IT budget reality that is forcing storage administrators to adopt new solutions that lower the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for storage.

Tape simply cannot measure up to today's standards for reliable, secure, simplified, cost-effective storage while meeting an organization's performance requirements. Nexsan's Assureon secure disk archive is a state-of-the art archival storage solution that innovates where tape stagnates for fast, reliable, secure storage. Going forward, tape may still exist to be tucked away inside a mountain, or for data portability, but even those days are limited.

Assureon brings a competitive edge for companies looking to get rid of the storage headaches that come with tape systems. Moreover, for any organization that has data that demands guarantees, no other storage solution will make you feel safer and more at ease about your protection architecture than Assureon. If data protection risks within your current storage infrastructure have ever kept you up at night, Assureon will ensure that you never worry about the risk of data loss again.

With Assureon, Nexsan has established a best practice model on how data archiving and protection should be deployed. Nexsan's 'simpler is better' concept improves the performance, security and reliability of archival storage with infrastructure consolidation and simplified storage management to create the type of storage cost reductions and efficiencies required of IT professionals.

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
