Disk Archive provides easy, secure and affordable technology for archiving and cold data storage – ALTO - “Alternative to LTO”.
We created ALTO – high-density, enterprise-class, offline data archive solution - to allow a convenient and cost effective alternative to cumbersome robotic tape libraries and expensive clustered RAID storage setups. ALTO provides easy scalable capacity and scalable security thanks to user defined replication level. Due to non-spinning disks, ALTO has ultra-low power consumption and triple digit extended disk life. ALTO combines on-line and off-line data storage using individually managed commodity disks that can be externalized for vault storage and bank-like security. ALTO integrates with other systems through standardized API or native low level control of the system, and is supported by over 30 industry leading asset management providers.
ALTO offers the flexibility and scalability to deliver a secure, reliable long-term archive. When business requires, ALTO easily expands its capacity without complexity in small increments for low costs. An ALTO based archive can start as a single device at a single location, and grow up in scale, security or geography without limits. For high speed Archive and Restore access ALTO is deployed at low cost on-site, connected to a local LAN. For increased resilience, ALTO supports off-premises deployment at geographically separated location, independently of it being another building or another continent.
