StorMagic ARQvault: An Active Intelligent Repository

StorMagic ARQvault: An Active Intelligent Repository

ARQvault is a collection of vaults creating a federated repository.

ARQvault software combines different and distributed storage resources into an integrated system shared across the network. Vaults consist of a server, storage, and ARQvault software.

ARQvault is active.

Secondary storage, such as LTO tape libraries and Sony optical systems, cloud storage, and even offline storage are all an active part of the repository. ARQvault knows where all the data is and can actively seek, find, and retrieve any data in real time.

ARQvault is intelligent.

ARQvault uses policies to automatically move data to different storage tiers and creates low-resolution proxies of high-resolution video, audio and image files for fast retrieval. The use of metadata and customizable fields and integration with analytics packages provides for rich data analysis and discovery of new relationships and business assets.
