FUJIFILM Introduces Dternity – the Future of Data Archiving

Innovative approach to archiving leverages the most cost-effective data storage media available

VALHALLA, N.Y.--()--FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc., a subsidiary of FUJIFILM Corporation, the leading global manufacturer of data storage media, today announced the launch of Dternity, a new deep storage and archiving solution for organizations seeking to preserve and protect their critical data. Combining cost-effective data tape with seamless onsite and online content protection, Dternity‘s holistic approach to archiving is easy to use, reliable and scalable for future data growth.

“Dternity gives customers a complete deep storage and archiving solution that offers unparalleled access, superior protection and easy retrieval for even the most data-heavy organizations,” said Peter Faulhaber, president, FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc. “Customers can now easily leverage the economics of tape to empower their archive without sacrificing accessibility to their files and projects.”

“Tape as a storage medium has seen a resurgence in recent years but IT professionals have struggled with how to integrate or re-integrate tape into their data centers. Dternity marks a dramatic step forward by creating an easy to access archive that integrates disk, tape and even cloud into a single automated archive,” said George Crump, lead analyst, Storage Switzerland.

Dternity combines innovative tape media, onsite network storage appliances, and online vaulting to streamline and simplify the data archive process:

  • Dternity Archive Media
    Based on Fujifilm’s NANOCUBIC technology that incorporates Barium Ferrite (BaFe) particles to offer superior performance and longer archival life compared to conventional metal particle (MP) tape. Dternity Archive Media is used to enable seamless movement of content between the Dternity NAS and the Dternity Media Cloud.
  • Dternity NAS
    On-site network attached storage (NAS) appliance built to provide online data access, low-cost scalability and data protection for unstructured, fixed content. Using linear tape file system (LTFS) tape technology, Dternity NAS delivers the performance of disk with the economics of tape in one simple and massively scalable solution.
  • Dternity Media Cloud
    Complete online storage solution for the preservation and protection of digital data archives. Features include multiple connection methods, fully customizable SLAs, regulatory-compliant security, mobile support, auto-migration, and archive verification.

Dternity is available now, with advanced portal access coming in late 2014. Customers can learn more about Fujifilm Dternity at NAB 2014 in Las Vegas, beginning April 7.
