Yotta Infrastructure has partnered with Norway based data storage technology developer Piql to launch Yotta Preserve for the Indian market.
With the help of Piql’s approach of using a photosensitive film to store digital information that can survive for any length of time Yotta Preserve aims to address the issues of governments departments, museums, the movie industry, banking and healthcare institutions and other sectors that practically need to preserve their information forever, the company said.
Data has been growing at an enormous rate and due to an increase in the data storage capacities, the long-term storage capabilities are still not prevalent.
Entities still need to make multiple copies of their data, and the life of data storage devices is limited. Piql’s film-based preservation technology has been tested to last for centuries with guaranteed future accessibility.
This means that no matter what technology is available in the future, all preserved films will be restored in authentic form and quality, the company said.
This collaboration will give organisations in India end-to-end data preservation and archival service from Yotta.
Underlining the benefits of Yotta Preserve the company pointed that in Yotta Preserve the data archived/stored is unalterable, secure and there is no data loss and the longevity of the storage is infinite.
This is the only kind of data storage service that is offline, digital, and migration-free and also uses photosensitive film piqlFilm to store data. Thus, the data is stored in physical mode and additionally is searchable just like a digital storage medium.
“This is another innovative service that we are delighted to introduce in our growing portfolio. Different Industries require to archive data for future reference,” said Sunil Gupta, Co-founder and CEO, Yotta Infrastructure.
“We are pleased to collaborate with Yotta and have Piql’s technology and services available through such a well-known and trusted brand portfolio.
