Xendata is a global provider of cutting-edge data storage solutions optimized for creative video, medical imaging, video surveillance and other applications with high volumes of large files. We provide active archive systems based on LTO data tape, optical disc cartridges and hybrid cloud. Our LTO archives scale to 100+ Petabytes and provide cost effective, secure, long-term retention of file-based assets. When configured as private cloud storage, our LTO solutions provide an attractive alternative to public cloud storage services, such as AWS Glacier and the Archive Tier of Azure object storage. In addition, we offer cloud-based synchronization services that provide file sharing across multiple locations and create a global file system. This boosts the productivity of distribute teams by enabling them to seamlessly share and synchronize files across all locations.
Active archives are complementary to primary disk storage. They represent a tier of storage that is lower performance than fast primary disk but much lower in cost per TB. Archive archives store data that is too valuable to discard where the content may be restored frequently but not intensively like primary storage.
XenData provides tiered storage systems that archive to LTO data tape, optical cartridges and/or to cloud object storage.
XenData LTO Archive Appliances provide rich functionality. They all have a standard file system interface that may be accessed locally or over your network via SMB, NFS or FTP. This means that applications access the LTO archive just like writing to and reading from a local disk volume or network attached storage.
An S3 object storage interface may be added to any XenData LTO Appliance via a software upgrade. This provides secure access from anywhere worldwide. It creates a private cloud that competes with public cloud storage services such as AWS Glacier and the Archive Tier of Azure object storage.
XenData Optical Disc Archives save files to Sony Optical Disc Archive (ODA) cartridges for secure long-term retention. XenData archive servers manage Sony ODA libraries to provide fast access to petabytes of secure storage. They are available in single server and clustered configurations and may be cloud enabled. This means that cloud object storage may be designated as a storage location in addition to, or as an alternative to, ODA.
XenData Cloud File Gateway (CFG) software creates a hybrid cloud Active Archive infrastructure: it is a file gateway to cloud object storage which also allows you to keep your most frequently accessed files on a local disk volume.
USE CASES -
Fast Remote Access. Specific folders within the archive are available to remote users for file download and/or upload. Permissions can be tailored, allowing folder access to be configured for individual users.
Remote Backup Archive. Replication of one LTO archive to a second LTO system at another location which can even be on a different continent. This use case employs a Cloud File Gateway on the primary archive to communicate with an S3 Interface on the secondary archive.
Multiple Archive Sync. Combining multiple LTO archives in a single global file system that is accessible anywhere worldwide. This is achieved using Global Sync, a XenData synchronization service that links multiple S3 enabled LTO archives.
