FUJIFILM Object Archive software is a technology that seamlessly integrates inside existing workflows with the security of air gaps and other benefits of tape. That makes it a scalable, affordable solution for modern organizations that rely on or need to store large banks of cold data.
FUJIFILM Object Archive was created to enable the move from file to object storage while also providing organizations with the nimble capabilities required to access and manage data. The goal was to provide a tape-based storage solution that works with and alongside cloud-based options for a hybrid approach.
Fujifilm's FUJIFILM Object Archive leverages a storage format called OTFormat. This is one of the few technologies that allows seamless interaction between tape storage and the S3 protocol. It supports a hybrid approach that solves efficiency, redundancy and cost-efficiency challenges for businesses.
- OTFormat supports efficient reading of objects and metadata. Data elements can quickly be written and read to and from tape, even when they're in their native form. This cuts down on the need for human tech resources to intervene in the data archiving process.
- OTFormat is open format. You don't have to lock yourself in with a specific vendor. You can bring your data to a new solution to support cost, mission or growth goals.
- OTFormat is designed for long-term archiving. This makes tape libraries act as object storage for an on-premise, private cloud solution. At the same time, the fact that data is housed on tape keeps air gaps in place.
FUJIFILM Object Archive allows organizations to keep a full chain-of-custody for their data. S3 buckets are used to read and write data to tape. Automation tools are then developed to make this process even more efficient.
FUJIFILM Object Archive software can be used by a wide variety of organizations, including educational institutions, research and development firms, businesses in industries such as finance and health care, and many others. They can all benefit from the cost-effective, streamlined approach to hybrid data solutions that FUJIFILM Object Archive supports.
For example, Universities and federal research organizations especially have a need to preserve their valuable data long-term, but meeting both security requirements and budget can be challenging. FUJIFILM Object Archive can help customers preserve their data using reliable and cost-effective tape.
