StrongBox ensures complete data protection for all of your online, nearline and archive storage needs. Combining flexible, policy-driven performance with cost-effective Linear Tape File System (LTFS) technology.

StrongBox is a plug-and-play NAS appliance that is simple to deploy. Connecting to the network via GbE or 10GbE, StrongBox presents stored data just like a standard network share.

Users have a persistent view of all files and objects so that data can be recalled simply when needed. StrongBox provides an easy point for applications and users to access data directly as a standard file system, no special applications or agents needed.

With StrongBox and LTO/LTFS tape, you can scale storage as needed using the library of your choice or even add multiple tape libraries to increase storage capacity seamlessly managed behind a single StrongBox. Users can add FC/SAS disk arrays, such as StrongBox XpanDisk, to increase the nearline storage capacity. 

StrongBox writes data in a non-proprietary format and makes no modifications to files or metadata. StrongBox protects data on multiple fronts so that you can be confident that data written is recoverable in time of need. StrongBox is energy efficient to help you meet Green IT initiatives, not to mention reduces your cost for power by up to 95 percent. StrongBox provides file and/or object storage to provide the best of both worlds in one solution.
