Our cost-benefit invitation to you
LOW LIFETIME COST
ALTO offers a lower lifetime cost of ownership than any other archiving technology. No more paying for upgrades to new generations of LTO tape and players. No more expensive robotics. No more expensive cloud archive egress costs. No more expensive internet connections. Talk to us about how much ALTO would save your operation.
FAST AND EASY TO DEPLOY AND SCALE
ALTO Connect enables more advanced integration with ALTO through either specific plugins or open FTP/FXP. Use JSON commands to access an open source database and a suite of utilities. Having a database means that ALTO can manage externalised disks. When a content restore is requested, ALTO Connect will first look in primary ALTO, then on a backup ALTO, and if still not available, return the location of drive in the physical vault.
FAST CONTENT RESTORE TIME
ALTO offers the best performance of any other archiving technology. No more delays as tape indexes are read and content files played from tape to online storage. No more long waiting for cloud archive egress latency (cloud archive content requests can take 5-15 hours based on 100MB files), Talk to us about the performance benefits of ALTO and their impact on your operation.
LOW CARBON FOOTPRINT
ALTO offers the lowest carbon footprint archiving technology available. No more high electricity consumption due to constantly spinning disks of the alto drive. No more tape players and tape robotics burning energy and needing expensive environments. The ALTO unique architecture allows the spinning down of infrequently access drives. Talk to us about the green credentials ALTO offers.
