Active Archive™ is the interchange of data access between:

  • Online
  • Nearline
  • Offline

The TeraStack Solution operates as an Active Archive™, providing three tiers of data storage. Storage protocols can be customized by the end-user through the patented Java II middleware. This storage architecture allows for instant access of data in the online area and energy passive storage for the nearline and offline data.

The system integrates an application server, RAID cache, Blu-ray storage and archive, with an easy to use plug and play media stack that operates at approximately 10 percent of the power of existing solutions.

Data that is instantly available is automatically backed up, while data that is infrequently used is maintained in a sleeping state that is easily accessible and has 50-100 data integrity.
