PoINT Archival Gateway – High Performance Object Storage using Tape Libraries
PoINT Archival Gateway provides a standard object store (S3) interface to a true object storage environment using LTO media in virtually any Tape library. This interface makes it possible to backup and archive hundreds of petabytes of data without file system limitations by using the scalability of object storage . The Archival Gateway quickly receives data and securely writes it to storage media in a format that also allows this data to be quickly accessed when necessary. The PoINT Archival Gateway’s highly scalable S3 web service enables almost unlimited write parallelization providing extremely high data transfer rates. With a high level of scalability Archival Gateway can handle data transfer rates of over 1 PB per day.
PoINT Data Replicator – File and Object Replication to S3 Cloud/Object Storage
Data storage in the object store/cloud environment continues to expand. Both hosted and on-premises object storage is often not backed up, as it is believed to be secure. This assumption is negligent and risky. High availability and redundancy features offered by hosted cloud services and on premises object storage products do not protect against human error, ransomware, malware, or technology failure. These systems need backup/replication, most appropriately on a separate storage technology, at a different location and in the original format as stored in the cloud and object storage.
PoINT Data Replicator software provides a solution to meet these requirements.
The “File-to-Object” function of the software solution enables the replication of files stored in file systems to a cloud/object storage. The “S3-to-S3 Object Replication” ensures data protection in the context of hybrid or multi cloud approaches by replicating S3 objects including metadata between any S3-capable source and target buckets.
