Data-intensive workflow

The current practice of keeping track of high value data, created at great expense, relies on either embedding ambiguous snips of metadata in the file name, or pairing it with separate metadata descriptor files that are prone to being separated from the subject data, effectively losing valuable data forever. ArcaStream offers integrated Metadata and Data Management Systems that:

  • Are software defined and utilise appropriate commodity hardware from trusted vendors to provide an eco-system that provides the benefits of both enterprise and open source solutions at the most competitive price point.
  • Finds, adds and exploits metadata for optimal data management combined with advanced search features to find relevant data.
  • Provides a Global Namespace across all storage resources, combining on-premise and cloud storage into a single searchable namespace.
  • Automates data movement, governance, replication, retention and preservation across all storage resources.
  • Securely shares synchronized data among global collaborators empowering global workflows.
  • Ensures data is available at the right place, at the right time, and at the right cost across the enterprise while maintaining an audit trail as data is ingested, transformed, accessed and archived.
