Archive360 mixes and matches cloud data archiving elements

Archive360 is expanding its cloud data archiving and management platform, but also making it more selective.

The vendor’s Archive2Azure is adding several different elements for customers to archive, including Salesforce and media.

At the same time, it’s moving from a one-size-fits-all platform to a mix-and-match product. That change will lower the cost and reduce complexity for customers, said Bill Tolson, vice president of marketing at Archive360, based in New York. In adding the new elements, it made sense for Archive360 to restructure the platform.

“You only use what you need to use,” Tolson said.

The Archive2Azure management platform stores data in its original format. It maintains data in the customer’s own Azure tenancy.

Archive360 now offers eight cloud data archiving modules: databases, files, healthcare, legacy applications, media, messaging, Salesforce and SharePoint. The vendor previously offered just the file and messaging capabilities.

“In each one of the modules, there is competition,” said George Crump, founder and president of analysis firm Storage Switzerland. “But there’s nobody that I know of that can do it all into one system.”

For example, HubStor, which Tolson labeled one of Archive360’s closest competitors, offers archiving for file storage in Azure.

Drilling down into the archiving advantages

Two of the big benefits to the platform are a reduction in the cost of primary storage and the ability to incrementally add space for data in the cloud, Crump said.

Organizations often have to keep old data from a variety of the modules for compliance or regulatory purposes.

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation was a big driver for the updates, Tolson said. GDPR includes a number of new rules regarding customers’ data rights, privacy and protection.

“We’re consolidating and managing a lot of data in a single repository, which makes it easier to respond to GDPR,” Tolson said.

Salesforce users can buy additional storage from the software-as-a-service vendor, but there’s more value in archiving, Tolson said. With Archive2Azure, customers can archive, manage and protect old Salesforce content, minimizing the risk of data deletion.

“Salesforce doesn’t include any archiving capability at all,” Tolson said.

Crump said there are few vendors that can archive Salesforce data, and he doesn’t know of any that migrate it to Azure.

For media archiving, Archive360 platform users can transcribe, index and search audio and video files. Using machine learning, the platform understands and translates content into more than 50 languages, which makes searching faster and more accurate.

We’re consolidating and managing a lot of data in a single repository, which makes it easier to respond to GDPR.
Bill Tolsonvice president of marketing, Archive360

Other new capabilities include the following:

  • archiving of old database applications to save money and space and improve performance;
  • information management and archiving of patient healthcare content, including imaging, for consolidation and security;
  • archiving and management of structured and unstructured legacy data in a searchable cloud platform; and
  • management, analysis and protection of SharePoint data.

The healthcare module has market potential, Crump said. While many think healthcare organizations don’t want to use the cloud, Crump said he has found the opposite to be true.

“They don’t want to store this massive [amount of] data on premises,” he said.

Images in healthcare, for example, have grown in size considerably in just the last few years. In addition, for security and privacy benefits, Archive360 does not see any of the data archived, Crump said.

Logging the logistics

There’s a small architecture difference from the previous version of Archive2Azure, so previous customers won’t shift over automatically. Tolson said some, especially financial customers, will want the new platform, but others won’t want to mess with what they have.

The updates became generally available on Monday. Archive360 had been working with beta customers for about six months.

Archive2Azure is subscription-based. The basic platform starts at $500 per month and rises based on total data under management.

Each cloud data archiving element is priced separately, and the cost is based on capacity, starting as low as $1 per terabyte, per month.

Crump cautioned that licensing and calculating costs could get complex. He noted that customers need to factor in the price of their Azure storage in addition to the Archive2Azure cost.

Archive360, which was founded in 2011, claims about 1,000 customers.

Microsoft making progress on quantum computer ‘every day’

Microsoft is “all-in” on building a quantum computer and is making advancements “every day”, according to one of the company’s top experts on the technology.

Julie Love (above), Director of Quantum Computing, called the firm’s push to build the next generation of computer technology “one of the biggest disruptive bets we have made as a company”.

Quantum computing has the potential to help humans tackle some of the world’s biggest problems in areas such as materials science, chemistry, genetics, medicine and the environment. It uses the physics of qubits to create a way of computing that can work on specific kinds of problems that are impossible with today’s computers. In theory, a problem that would take today’s machines billions of years to solve could be completed by a quantum computer in minutes, hours or days.

While Microsoft has noted that no one has yet built a working quantum computer, Love said the company has the right team in place to make progress and eventually create a system and software that can tackle real-world issues. Over the past decade, Microsoft has built a team comprised of some of the greatest minds in quantum physics, mathematics, computer science and engineering. It is also working with some of the leading experts in universities across the world.

“Quantum computers could solve a set of problems that are completely intractable to humans at this time, and it could do so in 100 seconds,” she said during a speech at London Tech Week. “Microsoft’s enterprise customers are interested in changing their businesses using this technology, and we have set our sights beyond the hype cycle. We have a good understanding of what’s needed.

“Microsoft is working on the only scalable solution, one that will run seamlessly on the Azure cloud, and be much more immune to errors. The truth is that not all qubits are equal; most are inherently unstable and susceptible to error-creating noise from the environment. Our approach uses topological qubits specifically for their higher accuracy, lower cost and ability to perform long enough to solve complex real-world problems.”

Microsoft is the only major company attempting to build topological qubits, which aims to significantly reduce any interference at a subatomic level that might affect the machine. With this approach, the computational qubits will be “corrected” by the other qubits.

“When we run systems, there are trade-offs in power, because they have to be very cold. However, we get higher compute capabilities,” said Love, who started studying quantum computing in the late-1990s.

Last year, Microsoft released a Quantum Development Kit, which includes its Q# programming language for people who want to start writing applications for a quantum computer. These can be tested in Microsoft’s online simulator. Q# is designed for developers who are keen to learn how to program on these machines whether or not they are experts in the field of quantum physics.

“We have released the Quantum Development Kit so developers can learn to program a quantum computer and join us on this journey,” Love added.
