FUJIFILM Object Archive and Tiger Bridge enable cost-effective, open, and future-proof way of archiving and preserving massive amounts of data

July 29, 2021

FUJIFILM Recording Media GmbH, Kleve, Germany announces a joint marketing partnership with Tiger Technology (Alpharetta, Ga.) to provide customers a long-term, secure, and scalable storage management solution for the seamless movement of data from a primary storage tier to tape storage.
Integrating FUJIFILM Object Archive with Tiger Technology’s Tiger Bridge offers active archiving to tape while preserving the entire chain of custody. The resulting environment provides a complete archiving solution to simplify the management and archive of unstructured data, and its movement into lower cost, long-term storage.

How the solutions work together:
Tiger Bridge monitors and manages selected areas of the local file system, then identifies data based on metadata attributes to move it to FUJIFILM Object Archive. Aging content can be actively archived - meaning that aged files no longer need to use local disk space, yet remain fully visible and accessible to users and applications. Once archived, FUJIFILM Object Archive provides a secure long-term archive on tape, with a physical air-gap, while maintaining access to the data. This provides immutable data copies that can prevent a ransomware or crypto lock attack on a network.

“The joint solution of Tiger Bridge and FUJIFILM Object Archive provides a comprehensive archive solution that scales seamlessly as archive needs increase,” says Wolfgang May, Managing director, FUJIFILM Recording Media GmbH “. The combined environment offers the most secure data protection for sensitive digital assets while reducing the total cost of managing long-term data.”
“Successful long-term archiving is achieved when you have confidence in immediately accessing your data, even when today’s technology fails you,” says Lance Kelson, executive vice president at Tiger Technology. “Using an open tape format is the essential first step, but one must still be weary of archiving software that encapsulates your content in a proprietary wrapper. Tiger Bridge stores files in their native format to FUJIFILM Object Archive, thereby preserving the chain of custody and avoiding vendor lock.”
