Integrated Archive & Backup Solutions

Facilis Object Cloud

The way to ensure data redundancy is to incorporate backup and archive within an already functioning workflow. Facilis Technology has integrated field-proven object storage software to create a turnkey Cloud and LTO tiered storage system. Offline files are represented in the same volume and tracked by the same interface as active project files. With Object Cloud software, a Facilis Virtual Volume double as the cache volume for Cloud and LTO locations, making movement to archive and restoration of archived or backup files simple and fast. Contact our staff at info@facilis.com to learn more about the Object Cloud product integrated with our Facilis HUB data storage systems.

Object Cloud Software
As an add-on to many existing TerraBlock or any newly purchased Facilis HUB Shared Storage System, Object Cloud software utilizes a native Facilis virtual volume as the disk cache for a 10TB, 50TB or 100TB cloud account, with no additional fees to pay regardless of how many times you need to restore files. Add the cloud account renewal to your Facilis Total Care support contract, and always be supported and protected.

Object Cloud LTO
When purchasing a 24-tape library from Facilis, Object Cloud LTO lets you use a native Facilis volume as the cache for your LTO tape library. Copy files to disk and after they’re successfully written to tape and indexed by FastTracker, the files are removed but still viewable in the folder. Use FastTracker to search video and audio files on LTO and if needed, restore them from the LTO for use in your project. Combine LTO with the 50TB or 100TB Cloud package and be protected locally and globally!

Object Cloud Bundles
Facilis is combining reduced-cost storage and server infrastructure to better protect your company data. The Object Cloud bundles consist of nearline storage, a storage server with shared file system access and unlimited FastTracker asset tracking.

Object Cloud LTO Bundles
Facilis is combining reduced-cost storage and server infrastructure with LTO library technology to better protect your company data and be the perfect backup storage solution.
