ActiveScale Brings Data Immutability to a Lower Entry Point

Quantum Corp. (NASDAQ: QMCO) today announced enhancements to its ActiveScale platform with a focus on data security, increased capacity efficiency and performance. The company also added a more compact, entry level configuration to its portfolio. The new capabilities advance Quantum’s strategy to be the leading provider of management and storage services for unstructured data.

Helping Data-Driven Enterprises Manage, Protect, and Preserve Their Most Valuable Asset

Increasingly, double digit data growth rates are exacerbating the cost and complexity of managing and storing data. The ability of organizations to extract value from data is essential to staying competitive, which drives the demand for data availability and access. Magnifying this challenge is the scale at which data and storage must be managed. ActiveScale object storage platform meets the necessity of managing, protecting, and preserving data at scale.

Quantum ActiveScale software delivers flexible scalability, from a few hundred terabytes to tens of petabytes, with its Dynamic Data Placement model assuring the highest levels of data durability. ActiveScale features and architecture simplify the deployment and management of the environment today and into the future.

ActiveScale Object Lock for Data Immutability
The new ActiveScale 5.7 Object Lock feature protects data from malicious acts such as data deletion, relocation, and ransomware. Once immutability is set on an object or a bucket, it can’t be modified until the policy expires. Whether for compliance or protection against data loss, object lock ensures the data will be the same days, months, or years later.

Small Object Aggregation for Enhanced Efficiency and Performance

The ActiveScale platform has a new Small Object Aggregation capability that enhances its ability to provide efficient storage capacity by aggregating small files into a large object prior to erasure encoding it. The aggregation results in higher utilization and increased overall performance for small object transactions. The key differentiator of small object aggregation is the ability of ActiveScale to provide direct access to small objects without reconstituting the whole object. 

New Entry-Level Capacity
Quantum enhanced the ActiveScale architecture, now offering a smaller, three-node configuration starting at 432TB raw. With this entry-level option customers can benefit from the management, protection, and preservation capabilities of ActiveScale as they grow.
