Atempo and Dell Partner to Offer Advanced Digital Archiving Capabilities

Palo Alto, Calif. - Atempo, a provider of cross-platform data protection and archiving solutions, announced that Atempo Digital Archive (ADA) has been certified for the Dell DX Object Storage Platform.
ADA is a comprehensive file archiving solution that provides an open, centrally managed and secure archive to address exponential growth in data volumes and long-term retention requirements. ADA is integrated with the Dell DX Object Storage Platform’s API, enabling Dell and Atempo customers to manage the overall total cost of ownership associated with the archival of data for long-term preservation. 

ADA frees up primary storage space by automatically migrating data to the DX Object Storage Platform, achieving storage optimization. The metadata-aware joint solution can provide users the information they need to understand the content and the context of the data.

When used together, the ADA and the DX Object Storage Platform solution can optimize total cost of ownership and resources, and enhances performance of primary storage and backup software, while also allowing users to centrally manage long-term archives. ADA ensures data is automatically organized and made easily accessible using built-in Hierarchical Storage Management capabilities. By tracking metadata and using metadata-based policies, ADA and the DX Object Storage Platform can provide the data management intelligence to intuitively manage how long and where the data is stored.

“Media & entertainment companies and life sciences organizations, for example, are faced with exponential growth of unstructured data that needs to be kept for the long-term while remaining accessible,” says Richard Heitmann, vice president, marketing at Atempo. “They need a comprehensive solution that will tackle the challenges associated with storage optimization and long-term digital assets preservation. When used together, ADA and the DX Object Storage Platform address these needs.”

With the new support of the Dell DX Object Storage Platform by Atempo’s flagship file archiving product, Atempo builds upon the longstanding support it has provided for Dell servers and storage products with Atempo Time Navigator (ATN), its comprehensive Enterprise backup solution.
