Economic and environmental
With slowing HDD capacity growth and increased focus on energy and power consumption, it makes more economic and environmental sense to store data on HPE StoreEver tape in a format where it can be readily accessed but remain offline and ‘depowered’ until it is required.
Fuji’s OTFormat enhances speed and performance by packing multiple objects together for efficient, cost-effective performance.
Secure version control
Using Object Archive software, files are automatically versioned when data is edited. When a file is infected with malware, it is possible to restore it to the previous version stored on the tape.
Eliminates API's and gateways
Object Archive was specifically created to eliminate the traditional barriers of the incompatibility between file-based tape and object-based storage systems and the clunkiness of attempts to connect them via APIs and gateways.
Migrate from any S3 source
Object Archive lets you migrate data effortlessly from any S3 data source, whether that’s in the cloud or on-premises disk-based storage, to HPE LTO Ultrium data cartridges stored in your HPE StoreEver tape library.
Combine different datasets
Object Archive uses Amazon Glacier storage class to represent the data that is written to tape. It allows users to combine different datasets easily because all data is preserved in a common object format.
Easy to use with existing tools
Object Archive with OTFormat works in parallel to your active archive software, the data mover that controls what, how and when information is processed. As such, it is an enabling tool rather than a replacement for the software applications that your teams are already familiar with.
Complement your cloud
With Object Archive as the enabler, HPE StoreEver tape now speaks the language of the cloud, allowing hybrid environments with a mixture of on-premises, off-premises and tape, to be fully integrated.
