FUJIFILM future-proofs archiving and reduces costs with its unique dternity archive solution


Bedford, UK – 27th January 2014 - FUJIFILM UK Ltd. announced the launch of its new dternity backup and archive service. The dternity range of services provide a unique way of future-proofing archive management, helping companies to reduce their operating costs, while maintaining their critical security and compliance requirements.

The dternity service transfers data or content (in any format) to the highly secure dternity archiving centre. Following any initial migration, on-going changes to data sources can be automatically sent to the dternity archiving centre over the Internet via a secure connection.  Data assets can also be recalled from the service through a web portal and sent back to the customer in any format they request.

Companies are creating huge amounts of data that have to be stored according to company management needs, especially for industry compliance requirements. The advent of Big Data technologies and analytics create further demand for these volumes of information across businesses of all types, from media companies through to finance and professional services organisations. Industry analyst firm Gartner listed the Enterprise Information Archiving market as being worth more than $1.61billion in 2012, and this will continue to expand at a Compound Annual Growth Rate of more than 14.1 percent.

“Developed using our decades of experience with tape media storage, back-up and archive, dternity offers companies a means of reducing their administrative costs and meeting certified security standards, whilst ensuring that compliance regulations are met in full. Our aim is to take the pain out of archiving across managing formats, keeping archives up to date and recovering data when it is needed,” said Roger Moore, Strategic Business Manager, Fujifilm UK Ltd.  “At a time when companies are creating more data than ever, dternity provides our customers with a way to future-proof their critical information without any unforeseen or extraordinary costs”.
