Imation is a global scalable storage and data security company. Our portfolio includes tiered storage and security offerings for business, and products designed to manage audio and video information in the home. Imation reaches customers in more than 100 countries through a powerful global distribution network and well recognized brands.
Positioned at the intersection of security and storage, Imation Scalable Storage solutions are purpose-built to deliver multi-media, multi-tier, secure data protection and archiving for data-intensive, compliance-driven SMBs. These organizations are experiencing explosive data growth fueled by modernization of IT and are intrigued by new storage tiers and media but lack practical ways to implement. Through its Scalable Storage solutions delivered through channel partners, Imation is the only company to enable four layers of data storage: active, online, nearline and cloud.
Imation Scalable Storage solutions reduce storage costs by optimizing and automating data protection and compliance. Many of its solutions are enabled by Imation RDX technology, removable hard disk storage media that combines the best features of disk and tape. Imation RDX media’s rugged cartridge design promotes safe, reliable portability. Imation RDX® Media Secure with CyberSafe™ Pro Security Technology is the first RDX media with built-in encryption and cryptographic erase capability, making it an ideal solution for backup and recovery, data archiving and data shuttling.
Imation Scalable Storage solutions include:
- RDX Removable Hard Disk Storage Systems, including RDX arrays and removable systems that leverage Imation RDX Media and Imation RDX Media Secure. Imation RDX systems offer simple and inexpensive data backup and recovery capability, superior access speed and true scalability with infinite capacity.
- Imation InfiniVault data archive appliances deliver seamless integration of online HDD drives and Imation RDX cartridges to support nearline and offline storage. Providing cost-effective tiered storage to automate retrieval, retention and protection of data, InfiniVault supports disaster tolerance through duplication and disaster protection through replication.
- Imation DataGuard NAS-based disk drive appliances for data protection that utilize hard drives, removable Imation RDX cartridges, replication and cloud storage in a single backup infrastructure. Addressing a specific SMB pain point, DataGuard enables cloud as a cost-effective, practical backup layer where as alternatives require significant time [potentially weeks] for initial cloud seeding and data restore.
- Imation LTO Tape Drive and Tape Library; solutions that utilize Linear Tape-Open (LTO) technology, the leading open system tape format. The Imation LTO Tape Drive and Tape Library deliver flexibility given unpredictable growth in unstructured data and enable a shorter, more efficient archive window while still enabling compliance.
