Travis Johnston  |  March 5th, 2023

As a company that is focused on advancing data storage innovation with a solution that delivers cost, security, and sustainability benefits, Folio Photonics understands the challenges and opportunities presented by an active archive. That's why we highly recommend watching the Active Archive Alliance webinar titled “Balancing Capacity, Performance, TCO and Sustainability in an Active Archive World” in which Travis Johnston had the privilege of participating alongside experts from Nyriad, Fujifilm, and IBM. The discussion was moderated by Tom Coughlin, Founder of Coughlin Associates, a well-known and highly respected industry veteran with over 40 years of experience in digital storage.

The webinar highlights the importance of active archiving solutions that balance capacity, cybersecurity, performance, total cost of ownership (TCO), and sustainability. As data volumes continue to grow at an unprecedented rate, organizations are faced with the challenge of managing and storing that data effectively. Active archiving enables organizations to retain data for long periods of time, even forever in some cases, while ensuring that the data remains easily recalled when needed. This is highly critical for businesses that need to comply with strict industry regulations or retain data for legal reasons.

The webinar also elaborates on the fact that balancing capacity, cybersecurity, performance, TCO, and sustainability is critical for businesses to remain competitive in today's data-driven world. The ability to store, and access, large volumes of data quickly is essential for businesses to make informed decisions which provides them a competitive edge. Active archiving solutions that balance these factors enable businesses to achieve optimal performance and cost savings while minimizing their environmental impact.

At Folio Photonics, we understand the importance of sustainable business practices, and we were therefore particularly interested in the discussion on sustainability in the context of active archiving. The webinar explores how active archiving solutions can reduce energy consumption, minimize the environmental impact of data storage, and contribute to a circular economy by enabling the reuse and recycling of components.

By attending this webinar, you will gain a better understanding of the benefits and challenges of active archiving, the latest technologies and techniques being used, and the key considerations in building a sustainable and cost-effective data management strategy. You will hear from each presenter regarding their experiences and perspectives on this critical topic, providing you with a unique opportunity to learn from their insights and best practices.
