ALTO Architecture

The ALTO Modular Architecture is designed specifically for Offline Storage.

 

When files are not being archived or restored, the disk drives are spun-down and stopped. ALTO goes beyond MAID with independent control of each disk drive to further reduce power consumption, extend disk life and allow disks to be externalized for shelf storage or transportation.

 

User selectable Data Replication writes data files to multiple locations within the Archive to provide the required balance of security and storage efficiency. ALTO is a modular system which can be fully or partly populated with locally sourced off- the-shelf disks.


ALTOcare

Every ALTO has support included when it ships - ALTOcare. For 1 year, on top of HW warranty and support, we will provide software maintenance and email support.

 

ALTOcare can be extended during its 1st year to ALTOcare+, or alternatively for 12 years in 3 years increments.


ALTOcare+

Every ALTO has support included when it ships - ALTOcare. However we go further with ALTOcare+.

 

For 3 year, on top of HW warranty and support, we will provide software maintenance inclusive of major software upgrades, telephone and email support.

 

We provide non-stop 24/7 ALTO performance monitoring by our support specialists, so health of the system is under surveillance even before anything starts happening.

 

ALTOcare+ can be extended in 3 year increments up to 25 years.
