Quantum Artico Intelligent NAS Storage Appliance
Increase Productivity by Lowering the Cost of Storing and Accessing Data
What is Artico?
Artico™ intelligent NAS appliance provides a flexible, low-cost entry point for archive, with the ability to scale to store petabytes of data as demand grows. Powered by StorNext® 5 data management policies, Artico stores and retains data in a tiered storage system that intelligently places the data on the right technology at the right time, both on-premise or in the cloud. Combined with StorNext-enabled policies and the data migration tools of Rocket Arkivio Autostor software, Quantum enables users to move files seamlessly from primary storage to less expensive storage while maintaining full access to all files, providing the lowest TCO model for storing, accessing and protecting data.
Store More. Access Fast. Share Content.
Quantum’s Artico™ is a complete solution that enables workgroups to store and share more data to add value to work and increase overall productivity. Artico provides the most economic approach to online storage so users can afford to store and access more valued data and content than ever before.
Access Active Data From Disk. Intelligently Move Older Data To Tape, Object Storage, Or Cloud.
Artico enables workgroups to share active data directly from high-performance disk storage and to create policies that will intelligently migrate data to less-expensive archive storage as the content ages. Quantum’s integrated StorNext® technology offers powerful policybased data movement from active disk to a comprehensive range of archive storage technologies including Tape Libraries, Object Storage, and Cloud.
An Excellent Choice For Small Or Large Environments
Artico is a purpose-built appliance that can start as a standalone NAS share with 33TB of usable storage, and can seamlessly grow by upgrading disk storage to 73TB as well as by attaching archive storage that can scale to petabytes and support up to a billion files. The Artico solution can grow as your storage needs grow.
