Gain Insights, Extract Value, and Improve Business Outcomes

More and more, companies are looking to increase their competitiveness and gain valuable insights by treating data as a business asset. However, unlocking value often introduces challenges in managing, scaling, storing, and analyzing massive amounts of unstructured file or object data. ActiveScaleTM addresses these challenges by delivering an integrated system that can be up and running quickly with an architecture that is designed for petabyte-scale datasets. This architecture provides the foundation for storing data forever and extracting more value.

Can Data Live Forever?

Your data will probably outgrow and outlive the storage infrastructure where it currently resides, requiring a painful forklift upgrade and/or data migration to a more scalable environment.

ActiveScale leverages our patented BitSpread® technology and dynamic data placement to enhance data durability and facilitate a Data Forever architecture. This enables the underlying storage infrastructure to be improved and expanded over time without disruptive hardware changes.

BitDynamics® maintains high data integrity, with data verification and self-healing performed in the background.

A Solutions Portfolio That Is Right for You

Solving complex challenges rarely depends on a single technology, but rather on a holistic solution – a synthesis of hardware, software, and design know-how that can be tailored and deployed in a variety of ways to change the way an organization operates.

ActiveScale represents the next-generation cloud object storage system for capacity-intensive data needs across a wide range of industries and use cases.

Whether you have an IT hurdle to overcome or a business need to understand and capitalize on the value of data – capturing, accessing, analyzing, transforming, and preserving it – Western Digital has a solution that is right for you.
