Smarsh says its Enterprise Archive brings cloud scale and multi-cloud deployability to the enterprise information archiving space.
Smarsh says the cloud-native architecture of Enterprise Archive creates a secure and scalable platform across multiple cloud infrastructures (public and/or private). Organizations can choose to deploy archiving, supervision and e-discovery services on the infrastructures that align with their corporate cloud strategies.
“Global enterprises are making strategic decisions to future-proof their data platforms,” said Greg Vesper, Smarsh Chief Product Officer.
“Do you continue investing in highly constrained proprietary infrastructures designed for yesterday’s workloads, or do you leverage cloud-scale, cloud-durability, and geo-redundant storage from the world’s leading cloud providers? With Smarsh, organizations have the control and flexibility to deploy services where they want them.”
Cloud-Native Architecture and Multi-Cloud Deployability
The company says that deploying Smarsh Enterprise Archive enables customers to future-proof and protect their business these areas:
- Security. Smarsh data security practices, combined with the continuous security investments of the world’s leading providers, enable enterprises to strengthen security postures across areas such as: data immutability, intrusion detection, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation, multi-level data encryption and key management, continuous monitoring and audit logging, and identity and access control.
- Data Durability. Enterprise Archive runs simultaneously in multiple data centers distributed across three availability zones.
- Geographic Flexibility. Multinational customers that need to store data and run services in multiple geographic regions to meet regulatory or jurisdictional requirements can deploy services worldwide in the data centers operated by Amazon, Microsoft and Google.
- Scale & Performance. Leveraging public cloud infrastructure auto scaling and elastic load balancing capabilities, customers can modulate the services and storage consumed based on demand. Customers can add compute and storage resources when needed – as data volume changes – resulting in unmatched ingestion, search and export speeds.
- Platform Extensibility. With available application program interfaces (APIs) for content ingestion, administration and data enrichment, Enterprise Archive enables customers to enhance the value of the data in their archive while maintaining strict security and access requirements.
