Object data on Tape Creates a Large-capacity Data Platform with Security and Low TCO
As the amount of corporate data increases explosively, safe and low cost storage is required for BCP measures and analysis and utilization of long-term archive data.
As the use of the cloud service increases, many large-capacity, low-cost cloud storages that can automatically relocate "cold data" that is not actively used on a daily basis to a low-cost storage area are also provided. However, the download cost becomes expensive, and there has been an increase in demand for on-premises storage that takes into account the risk of cyber-attacks.
FUJIFILM Object Archive is a software that allows you to store data in a large-capacity, safe, and low-cost tape storage using the same data format (object format) and usage as many cloud and object storage. The standard S3 compatible API*1 enables transparent integration of tape storage for scalable and cost-effective data tiering.
Value Created by Connecting Object Storage and Data Storage
Benefits of Object Storage, Whose Use Is Driven by Digital Transformation
Compared to traditional file storage, object storage can be expanded flexibly as the amount of data increases. In addition to handling various data in a flat structure without creating a hierarchy, it is easy to search and control data, such as being able to lookup the data content by adding abundant metadata and being accessible via HTTP. It has attracted attention as a data storage platform in the petabyte era, and has already become the mainstream in cloud storage.

Advantages of Tape Storage where Technological Innovation is Remarkably Re-focused
Global IT companies and research institutes are utilizing tape storage systems, as the recent technological innovation has made it possible to reduce the $/GB and TCO to the minimum compared to HDD and SDD, the offline storage (air gap) lowers the risk of cyberattacks, and it has high potential as technologies to expand the capacity are proven.
Storage Cost Reduction
Protect from Cyber Attacks
Prevent Cloud Lock-In
FUJIFILM Object Archive Maximizes the Benefits by Connecting Two Storage Systems
FUJIFILM Object Archive software connects the object storage and tape storage to expand the on-premises object data seamlessly while contributing significant cost savings. The software also enables to centrally manage corporate data by integrating using the S3 compatible API and avoiding cloud lock-in.
