The Active Archive Alliance today announced the availability of a new report: “Active Archive and the State of the Industry 2020,” which highlights the increased demand for new data management strategies as well as benefits and use cases for active archive solutions.
As a result of its fast-increasing value, today’s data demands an intelligent archive solution that leverages the advanced capabilities of data movement technology and scale-out hardware. New applications, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) with billions of nodes and autonomous vehicles, are fueling the demand for more intelligent active archives.
Key industries rely on active archive solutions to help solve massive data growth challenges, including healthcare, high-performance computing (HPC) in life sciences, security, business efficiency and continuity, and media and entertainment.
“As we celebrate the Alliance’s 10th anniversary, active archives are more relevant today than ever before. We’re pleased to share this report on their evolving uses,” said Peter Faulhaber, Chairman of the Active Archive Alliance. “Sophisticated data analytics are key to extracting value from long-term massive data sets, and active archives enable organizations to get the most value from their data with cost-effective archival storage.”
An active archive manages data for rapid search, retrieval, and analytics. It is a high-value, scalable storage architecture that grants fast access to archival data across a virtual file system and manages data between storage systems and media types typically based on user-defined policies. Users can implement active archives on-premises, in the cloud, or both.
