BOULDER, Colo., Feb. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Active Archive Alliance today announced that Atempo and Harmony Healthcare IT have joined the organization. Active archives provide modern strategies to solve today's data growth challenges. Atempo and Harmony Healthcare IT join a growing number of industry-leading storage and IT vendors that together support the use of active archive solutions for data lifecycle management.
"We're pleased to welcome Atempo and Harmony Healthcare IT to the Active Archive Alliance," said Peter Faulhaber, chairman of the Active Archive Alliance and President and CEO of FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc. "As the challenge of managing increased data growth continues, the Alliance strives to bring the best of breed technologies together to provide active archive solutions for intelligent data management."
The opportunity to derive value from the vast volumes of data being created is making active archives an increasingly important part of organizations' data management road maps. New applications such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence, and machine learning are putting pressure on today's data storage infrastructures and are driving intense interest in active archive technologies. An active archive leverages an intelligent data management layer and enables online access to data throughout its lifecycle regardless of which tier it resides in the storage hierarchy. Active archive file systems span all pools of storage, whether they are SSDs, HDDs, tape or cloud.
Atempo's data management solutions address the needs of very large storage with millions or billions of files and petabyte-scale unstructured data volumes for mid-sized and corporate organizations. "Atempo has long played a role in large-scale on-prem and cloud archiving. We believe in the active side of archiving; ensuring our customer data remains safe yet accessible and available for business needs," said Luc d'Urso, Atempo CEO. "Our vendor-agnostic Miria platform for archiving solutions moves data intelligently and rapidly between different locations. Our current and future machine learning and artificial intelligence innovations will serve to boost Miria's power and scope."
Harmony Healthcare IT stores billions of records and petabytes of data as a first-to-market innovator of legacy data management solutions for medical facilities. "As the amount of protected health information skyrockets, healthcare leaders rightfully demand preservation and protection of data that will mitigate the risk of breach and meet retention requirements," said Shannon Larkin, VP of marketing and business development at Harmony Healthcare IT. "Our active archive solution, HealthData Archiver®, meets those demands and makes records accessible and usable for clinical decision-making, records release, eDiscovery, financial transaction posting, research, and analytics. By joining the Active Archive Alliance, we hope to network across industries with other data management and storage professionals to further enhance our healthcare offering."
