Quantum Lattus Private Cloud Certified With Interica's PARSŪ Data Management System
SAN JOSE, Calif. and LONDON, March 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) and Interica today announced a joint solution which enables oil and gas organizations to add cloud archive storage to their exploration workflows. Interica has certified Quantum LattusŪ private cloud object storage for use as an S3 storage target with Project Archive and Retrieval System (PARSŪ), Interica's advanced project data management solution. The combined solution lowers costs, improves data access and streamlines storage to achieve greater operational efficiency, helping companies confront data growth and tight budgets.
Preserving the Value of Data for the Oil and Gas Industry
Effective exploration for oil and gas generates vast pools of extremely valuable data which must be managed properly. Exploration and production projects incorporate data characterized by a rich variety of sources, locations and file types. Preserving this data requires that it is organized, available, accurate, and enduring across time and technology changes.
The Combined Advantages of Quantum and Interica
In today's energy exploration and production environment, more companies are looking for ways to save cost, increase access to data, and streamline their operations. Quantum's Lattus private cloud object storage is designed to meet those objectives. It is a self-protecting, self-healing solution that uses 10TB low-power HDDs and cost-effectively scales from 100TB to hundreds of petabytes to deliver cost-efficient capacity, data protection and resiliency with a simple-to-operate, simple-to-scale private cloud architecture. Trusted by the oil and gas exploration industry for over 15 years, PARSŪ enables companies to manage complex digital content for long-term knowledge retention, compliance, and storage.
The combination of Lattus and PARSŪ enables users to leverage the benefits of cloud technology to preserve this data without the uncertainty and vulnerability of public cloud services and also offers a number of other unique strengths:
PARSŪ Version 4.4 adds support for public and private S3 destinations such as Lattus to its existing support for tape and disk storage systems, which includes Quantum's high-density ScalarŪ tape libraries and QXS disk storage. When paired with a Scalar tape library, PARSŪ combines the newest, most operationally efficient tape automation with Lattus for more accessible long-term storage. Data already archived in Lattus may also be copied to tape to protect against online threats such as ransomware, or to provide off-line storage or sharing with business partners, all while containing storage costs.
The Quantum-Interica solution is currently available worldwide.
Simon Kendall, CEO, Interica "With the massive changes being seen in the oil and gas industry, Quantum was the first storage provider to recognize the opportunity in working with Interica to deliver cost-effective, operationally efficient data retention and protection. In this rapidly developing market, Interica was pleased to collaborate with Quantum by developing an S3 destination to support Lattus object storage. Because Interica foresees almost all major international oil and gas companies testing or migrating to object storage, this relationship allows us to provide a certified and proven solution to the industry."
Geoff Stedman, Senior Vice President, Products and Solutions, Quantum "Petroleum exploration and production data is an extremely valuable corporate asset requiring careful management. Many companies today in the oil and gas industry are actively seeking new ways to reduce operational costs associated with their existing storage infrastructure. Adding Quantum Lattus private cloud storage to Interica PARSŪ data management can substantially streamline IT operations for managing large amounts of project data."
