What additional capabilities does an Archive Appliance provide over RAID based NAS?

 

The AA provides a secure long term data storage solution for archive data.  All data written to the AA RAID is immediately secured to one or more UDO media to provide a long term protected data storage solution.  With RAID, data needs to be secured via various facilities including mirroring, replication or backup, including a combination of these items.  This adds cost and does not address the data longevity needs required for archive data.  With the AA, you have the data availability and performance of RAID matches with the long term data security of UDO.
