Managing CyArk's growing stores of data and safeguarding the world's cultural heritage in the most cost-effective manner possible required a different approach to data storage - one that uses advanced tape technologies to deliver the simplicity and performance of disk drives at a much more affordable price point. What CyArk needed, was an active archive. More>>

NASA Ames Research Center
NASA Ames Logo

As one of the leading high-performance computing (HPC) sites in the world, the NASA Ames Research Center generates approximately 1.5 PB a month of data related to research and simulations. Its existing data storage solution was nearing end of life and needed to be replaced. The center needed a solution that allowed for fast tape mount times and easy access, was cost effective, and provided a way for them to easily manage the lifecycle of the media. More>>
