Western Digital Corporation announced that Revera, New Zealand’s cloud services provider, has installed the HGST (@HGSTstorage) Active Archive System as its cloud-scale data repository for Revera Vault. Geared for deployments of all sizes – from terabytes to zettabytes, Vault relies on the HGST Active Archive System for its object store capability, capacity scaling, and unmatched data durability to optimize data accessibility and business continuity.
By leveraging the HGST Active Archive System, Revera Vault offers a distributed storage environment in excess of fourteen petabytes. This geo-dispersed architecture provides customers effortless access to their data, consistent performance, and maximum data durability. Vault customers can ingest data in Auckland and immediately retrieve it from Wellington, even in the event of a complete data center loss.
WDC’s HGST Active Archive System is a fully integrated, Amazon S3-compliant, scale-out object storage solution delivering 4.7 petabytes (PB) of raw data storage in a single rack. Leveraging HelioSeal® helium-filled disk drive technology and end-to-end optimization of system software and hardware, the system provides the industry’s best capacity, density and TCO with support for geo-dispersed replication, data-at-rest encryption (DARE), as well as distributed erasure coding for cloud-scale data durability and reliability—all key selection criteria for Revera.
