Efficiency at the best $/GB
for active archive use case

With organizations of all kinds storing more and more data for longer periods of time, it is essential to implement a storage system that can handle large amounts of data, scale over time, and perform retrievals as transparently as possible.

In this scenario, a low $/GB is fundamental for infrastructure sustainability, while file and API-based access methods can help end users access data from legacy as well as modern web-based and mobile applications.
