Keep citizens’ data safe in a system that lets you quickly check official records whenever you need to. You can protect the public purse too: only add storage when it’s required, without having to upgrade to the latest generation of media.

Medical and Life Sciences

There’s no limit to the research that can be archived or the volume of data that can be stored for the future. From surgery videos to clinical trial data and more —everything can be retrieved, fast, so nothing slows down your work.
