FUJIFILM announce a collaboration and integration, creating a joint solution built upon FUJIFILM Object Archive software and the iRODS data management platform. This joint solution leverages the benefits of a tape storage tier for infrequently accessed “cold” data, providing an automated archiving workflow for research, commercial, and governmental organizations that require storing large – and in most cases, rapidly growing – amounts of data
FUJIFILM announced the creation of the Sustainable Data Storage Initiative to highlight how tape technology can significantly reduce electricity consumption and CO2 emissions related to data storage. The initiative launches with a white paper, Accelerating Green Datacenter Progress with Sustainable Storage Strategies, published by technology research firm IDC, and sponsored by Fujifilm, providing an in-depth analysis of the significant energy savings and resulting environmental benefits of moving more data to tape storage.
FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc. is pleased to announce the launch and availability of its FUJIFILM LTO Ultrium 9 Data Cartridge (LTO-9). Fujifilm’s LTO-9 complies with the ninth generation LTO Ultrium*2 standards for magnetic tape storage media, marking a new standard of performance for backing up and archiving large volumes of data. Fujifilm’s LTO-9 uses proprietary technology to offer up to 45TB of storage capacity (18TB for non-compressed data), a 50% increase from the previous generation of LTO tape*3.
FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc. announced the release of an online calculator designed to help video surveillance (VS) industry professionals assess the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for long-term retention of video surveillance content. Today’s low-cost, high-resolution cameras combined with longer-term retention requirements are driving video content storage costs upwards across the VS industry and leading many to take a new look at their storage strategy.
The Optical Device Division of FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced that the FUJIFILM SX800, a new, long-range surveillance camera equipped with built-in lens, will be available in the U.S. in August 2019. The SX800, developed with FUJIFILM Corporation’s unique optical and cutting-edge image processing technology, features a high-performance, built-in FUJINON zoom lens, offering 40x optical zoom and a focal length range extending to 800mm.
FUJIFILM Corporation has announced that it will release a new vari-focal (variable focal length) lens “FUJINON DV2.2×4.1SR4A” for security cameras in late May. This is the world’s first vari-focal lens that offers advanced optical performance for compatibility with 6-megapixel high resolution security cameras. The advancement of digital technology has led to the emergence of security […]
Cozaint Corporation announced the launch of askALICE, the industry’s most economical video surveillance management hardware and software system delivering extreme long-term retention. askALICE provides an enterprise-grade video management software suite integrated with server and multi-tiered storage. Cozaint has developed the capabilities of the VMS software to easily play back video from either initial storage or second-tier storage without any additional steps needed by the surveillance operator.
As LTO storage technology is beginning to take root in the video surveillance retention market, a lawsuit such as this described below, could ultimately reduce the number of sources to obtain this storage technology and would more than likely increase costs thus stunting the acceptance of this technology in the physical security market. With companies like Quantum and SpectraLogic and others showcasing the low-cost option of long-term video retention when using LTO storage technologies, such a supply-chain lawsuit will not help grow this market.
LTO storage technology expanded its reach in 2016 effectively addressing many data intensive markets including cloud, entertainment, video surveillance, hyperscale data centers, High Performance Computing (HPC), and the Internet along with large-scale data intensive applications such as big data, backup, recovery, long-term archive, disaster recovery, and government compliance while positioning for the unknown appetite of the IoT. The LTO tape industry has been fueled by a decade of strong technological development and continues to play a major role for its traditional backup and disaster recovery services in addition to effectively addressing many new large-scale storage requirements. Demand for LTO tape is being fueled by unrelenting data growth, significant technological advancements, LTO tape’s highly favorable economics, low energy requirements, and the growing regulatory and business requirements to maintain “access to data forever.” Steady improvements have made LTO tape technology the most reliable storage medium available, now surpassing the reliability of HDDs by three orders of magnitude. Disk technology has been advancing, but LTO tape’s progress over the last ten years has been even greater.
