Archimedia’s Sucessor, MagnaStor

(K-PAR) Archimedia has been succeeded by MagnaStor.  While MagnaStor and Archimedia are fundamentally different, MagnaStor should replace all existing Archimedia installations.

Benefits of MagnaStor

  • MagnaStor provides support for all new versions of Windows from Windows Vista to Windows 8.
  • Lower cost per GB compared to Archimedia.
  • Requires no special hardware or additional media.
  • Integrates transparently into Windows.
  • Provides quick and immediate access to all your data.

Why Should I Upgrade?

Archimedia stores data using optical and mageto-optical technology.  All optical technology that Archimedia uses for storage has reached end-of-life, and as a result vendors no longer offer support or replacements should your existing hardware fail.

All versions of Windows that Archimedia runs on have reached their end of support dates as well. These versions of Windows will no longer be updated and pose security risks on your network.

MagnaStor is a new, evolving product with a lower cost, better integration, increased flexibility, and better compatibility with new software. Archimedia is no longer being supported or updated.

What is MagnaStor?

MagnaStor is a file system that is used to format common storage devices like hard drives, SSDs, and USB drives. Once formatted, these devices have the data preservation characteristics of optical media with the flexibility and ease-of-use of common storage devices.

Cloud Options
With MagnaStor you can replicate your volumes, in near-real-time, to Amazon S3 nodes all over the world (Glacier support coming Q4 2012).
