Archive Management Software Platform (AMS)
Electronically stored data is doubling every two years and is driving the need for efficient and cost-effective management solutions to reduce cost, complexity and business risk. This exponential growth combined with increasing internal governance (e.g., business continuity requirements), regulatory compliance and security mandates are placing new demands on data storage operations to retain, secure and protect data for long-term preservation.
Alliance Storage Technologies designed its Archive Management Software Platform (AMS) from the ground-up to address these constantly evolving requirements – addressing the need to intelligently archive, manage, optimize and secure critical information assets for 100+ years. The AMS platform enhances data retention with game-changing archiving flexibility, performance, scalability and cost efficiency, so that business critical environments and highly regulated industries, including financial services, healthcare, security and surveillance and the public sector can archive and retain data without compromise.
From creation to long-term preservation, the AMS platform manages the entire data archive lifecycle through a single pane of glass with the flexibility and elastic scalability that dynamic organizations require to support rapidly growing data volumes on-premises, into the cloud and across hybrid storage environments.
