Fujifilm Permivault
Permivault is file based storage that combines the benefits of both disk and tape to deliver a storage platform that behaves like disk while delivering the cost, reliability and archival life advantages of tape storage. The key advantage of Permivault is that by using tape as the underlying storage technology, it ensures the overall reliability of the archive based on tape’s better error rate performance compared to disk.
