For Preserving and Protecting Digital Content in File-Based Workflows

ASG-Digital Archive is an open archive software solution with automatic, end-user, and workflow-triggered archiving. ASG-Digital Archive migrates content from primary storage to near-line and deep archives, whether digital tape, disk or cloud storage.

Today, organizations must manage more critical data than ever before - and data volumes continue to grow at an explosive pace. Traditional backup and recovery solutions have proven ill-equipped to keep up with these demands. To ensure these increasing volumes of critical information are always available when needed, organizations require advanced new archiving capabilities. ASG-Digital Archive is the one solution that enables IT organizations to address their storage management challenges, today and in the long term. By managing data in a secure, centrally-managed archive, ASG-Digital Archive represents the most efficient, reliable, and cost-effective way to protect critical business information. This solution ensures that an organization’s most valuable data is organized and easily accessible - while at the same time freeing up expensive disk space, lowering storage costs, and reducing the backup window for data that is infrequently accessed.
