Sanity Solutions Receives Active Archive Architect Certification from the Active Archive Alliance

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

Sanity Solutions announced today that it has become an Active Archive Certified Architect (AACA) by the Active Archive Alliance.  This certification recognizes that Sanity Solutions has been trained with the proper tools and expertise needed to work with data center administrators to create and engineer active archive solutions for data management and storage.

An active archive is a combined solution of open systems applications, disk and tape hardware that gives users an effortless means to store and manage all their data. It is ideal for companies that regularly manage high-volume digital assets or face exponential data growth as it provides a cost effective way to store large amounts of data with high reliability and accessibility.

“Our training and certification program is aimed at companies tasked with providing storage solutions that enable reliable, online and efficient access to unstructured file data,” said Floyd Christofferson, director of storage product marketing at SGI and an Active Archive Alliance board member. “Companies such as Sanity Solutions benefit from the knowledge of the latest data storage technologies that are enabling organizations to store and access vast volumes of data extremely efficiently and cost effectively.”

Drew Milles of Sanity Solutions participated in a two-day training program hosted by the Active Archive Alliance where its representatives were educated on how to best architect an active archive data center environment. The certification enables Sanity Solutions to expand its solution offerings for cloud and Big Data storage and management and to enable affordable ‘Tape as NAS’ storage offerings.
