Scalable Archive Solution for Data Centers.
The amount of data which is produced and must be retained is growing at an unprecedented rate. These include many types of data such as medical, seismic research, sensor information, document images, movies and more. And these huge amounts of data must be retained for extended periods of time. PetaSite EX Solution can provide the best data archive solution using larger capacity Optical Disc Archive (ODA) Technology. The highly reliable and efficient WORM media is the best way to protect your data with safe, long term storage.
PetaSite EX Solution is a scalable enterprise class archive solution built on Sony’s latest Generation3 Optical Disc Archive (ODA) drive and media technology. WORM Optical Disc Archive cartridge and drives integrated into advanced library robotics, supporting industry-standard S3 connectivity and Web/ReST management software, provides secure platform for archives, cold storage repositories and digital data preservation initiatives.

Scale-up to 50PB* per library. Scale-out to Multi-Library, Multi-Cluster configuration for unlimited archive capacity.
*Actual capacity may vary based on customer infrastructure.
Cost competitive with HDD and Tape. Low energy and cooling requirements.
High-speed 8ch enterprise optical drive. 187.5MB/s average write performance*. 375MB/s read performance.* Write/Read up to 1PB/day per library.
*Optical Disc Archive Generation 3
The ISO-based accelerated media life test proves 100 plus years of ODA media shelf life*.
* Optical Disc Archive Generation 2 and 3. By internal tests referring to the
Durable and resilient in a wide range of environment conditions. No data loss due to EMP, X-Ray or
Don’t risk your business on failure prone hard drives. ODA protects your data with a 100 + year media lifespan.
S3 for data Access and REST API for System Management.
Eliminates costly data migration cycles. Future-proof technology investment.
PetaSite EX solution provides a highly scalable solution with advanced data integrity for both Put and Get operations.
Erasure coding can be configured to provide a redundant data structure across 4 or 8 media. This technique enhances performance while protecting against media, drive and robotics failure. Scale up within a single library starting from 4.7PB to 50PB*, or scale out with a cluster option to provide additional capacity.
*The usable capacity may be less than the maximum capacity.
Native Write Once, Read Many (WORM) drive and media Technology provide physical media and data security, to meet International regulatory compliance requirements along with ransomware protection. Advanced security features include:
Base System of Master Module. Start small and scale up.
Single Library of maximum capacity.
Scale Out Multiple Library. Single/Multiple Namespace.
