Artico: Smart, Simple Active Archive
The Artico appliance provides a flexible, low-cost entry point for data storage, with the ability to scale to petabytes of data as demand grows. Powered by award-winning StorNext 5 data management policies, Artico enables customers to store and retain 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. Because Artico is a NAS appliance, it is easy to deploy into environments where users can access files on Artico simply by dragging and dropping or pointing their applications to Artico's NAS share. Artico's integrated disk storage extends online access to stored content, reducing the need for additional primary storage to accommodate data growth.

This year's Product of the Year finalists were judged by a panel of users, analysts, consultants and Storage magazine and editors. The results will be published in the February issue of Storage magazine and online.

"Increasingly, we see customers who recognize the role tiered storage can play for managing their workflows," said Robert Clark, senior vice president, Product Operations, Quantum. "Powered by StorNext 5 data management policies, Artico redefines archive. It stores and retains data in a tiered storage system that intelligently places the data on the right technology at the right time, on-premise or in the cloud."
