Fujifilm Object Archive

As Data Grows, So Does The Need to Rethink Your Storage Options


Optimize Object Storage with Tape Archiving Software

To combat today’s storage challenges, Fujifilm provides the Fujifilm Object Archive, which uses OTFormat to leverage object storage and modern tape.

S3-Compatible Read/Write to Tape!


Few tape storage devices in existence can work seamlessly with object storage and the cloud. Fujifilm, the world’s largest manufacturer of data tape, has a new tape format for object storage called OTFormat. OTFormat allows for objects and metadata to be efficiently written and read to and from tape in native form.

Advantages of Tape Storage

Low Cost
  • Reduce costs for object storage
    by 80% or more
  • Digital tapes have the lowest cost of ownership of any long-term data storage solution

High Reliability
  • Unrivaled reliability with a Bit Error Rate of 1 x 1019
  • Way more reliable than Flash and HDD

Secure and Dependable
  • Air gap security between your data and the network
  • Ideal for long-term archiving or back-up of object data

Leverage the Latest Advantages of Tape Technology

 

Protect Data from Cyber Attacks

  • Air Gap Protection

  • Multi-Copy

  • File Versioning

Files are automatically versioned when data is edited, increasing the likelihood of file recovery in the event of a cyber-attack. For example, when a file is infected with malware, it is possible to restore it to the previous version stored on the tape.

Create a Hybrid Cloud Storage

  • Decrease Storage Cost

  • Increase Data Preservation

  • Increase Scalability

Tape storage is effective for storing mission-critical data that cannot be stored in a cloud environment, or for storing large amounts of data that would be more expensive to store in the cloud.

Prevent Cloud Lock-In

  • Alternative To Archiving In The Cloud

  • Storage Cost Optimization

  • Regulatory Requirements

“What if I need to change cloud providers or get all my data back?” By keeping a copy of your data, you can avoid expensive egress fees. Additionally, many cloud vendors will store your data in proprietary formats, avoid the difficult transformation process by keeping a copy of your data.

Cold Data Archiving

  • Keep Highly Confidential / Mission Critical Data Protected Onsite

  • Regulatory Requirement

  • Storage Cost Optimization

Fujifilm Object Archive allows you to create an archive so that you can free up valuable space on expensive primary storage – while still storing all of your organization’s data online. Moving cold data to an archive allows you to balance speed of data access with the cost of storage.
