InveStore v5 was designed, from the very
beginning, to be a single point of entry archive storage
management system. Its powerful file management and hardware
agnostic support has provided thousands of installations with
the freedom from specific or limited file formats and
compatibility with a wide range of legacy storage
hardware. This includes magnetic disk caching and removable media types for cost effective off-line WORM
storage. Archiving is a long-term application and user
requirement. The data must be secure, you must have access to it
when needed and that access may come long after the initial data
was stored. InveStore v5 is a major step forward in
delivering an archive management solution that supports:
multiple media tiers for critical user data based on access
demands, protected magnetic disk archive support, cost efficient
support of low cost off-line media, quick and easy disaster
recovery, and access through a single common interface.
protecting the archive
removable permanent WORM (physically non-erasable) media is the
most secure and cost effective form of archive storage, because
it is a cartridge and moved during in an automated library,
access to specific information can be delayed during “spin-up”.
Automated libraries can also create delays during times of
numerous retrieval requests. However, the ability to move data
from magnetic disk to off-line media does free up on-line active
archive space, keeps disk growth under control and saves power.
The combination of hard disk and removable archive media is a
perfect match. Utilizing hard disk caching for access speed is an
important part of delivering an archive solution that solves
daily operational concerns. But, it’s critical to protect and
secure the data long term and provide a safety net for
compliance and disaster recovery.
added disk as a tier of storage to the InveStore v5 managed archive.
With InveStore’s caching implementation, the user can configure
the software to utilize a wide range of hard disk for archive
data caching. All writes are cached to hard disk first and,
Pegasus’ Digital Signature feature prevents any tampering with
the data while it resides in the cache.
