Data such as photographs, video, medical records, scanned documents, court evidence, reports, experimental results and email messages do not change. Rather than fill expensive primary NAS with this data, and then wasting time and media backing it up repeatedly, it is best offloaded onto an archive storage system where it will be better protected yet fully available to users and applications.
General-purpose NAS does not always meet demands for corporate compliance or government regulatory compliance. Archive storage is more secure than NAS because all files stored on the system are fingerprinted, optionally encrypted, stored in WORM (write once read many times) format, and protected with a lifetime policy, all in a security-hardened storage system with built-in, multi-site key management and full audit logs.
General-purpose NAS does not meet demands storing or sharing sensitive data in a cloud. Assureon has built-in multi-tenancy that allows a cloud storage provider to service several customers securely off of one Assureon system. Customer’s data can be kept safe with the built-in encryption and multi-site key management of Assureon.
Assureon offloads primary storage up to 66%, eliminating the need to buy expensive disk capacity and eases backups by migrating data to the cost-effective, highly secure, self-protecting and efficient Assureon archive based on established rules, and is ideal for multi-tenant cloud storage.
