The synergistic arrangement highlights the capabilities and resources of both companies.

The next generation solution incorporates a modular approach allowing customers to design an archive platform with any combination of on-premises, cloud, or a hybrid, with centralized monitoring, control, and management of the entire archiving ecosystem. The optional high-performance optical tier provides the assurance that data is permanently stored and protected over the long-term. The solution is tightly integrated with Sony Optical Disc Archive products and offers excellent total cost of ownership, high capacity footprint, and exemplary performance. ASTI anticipates that the new solution will solidify the industry perception that optical is the most desirable technology for data archiving.

“Sony enthusiastically welcomes Alliance Storage Technologies, Inc. as an Optical Disc Archive Solutions Reseller.
