ProStor InfiniVault

ProStor InfiniVault is the most cost-effective storage system for the long-term retention of data and images. ProStor InfiniVault integrates information management software, online disk, and RDX removable disk to simplify retention management, while automating disaster protection and compliance. ProStor InfiniVault includes RDX removable disk and provides all the access and performance benefits of online storage with the economic benefits of offline storage. This enables organizations to dramatically slash the cost of storing and protecting data that is critical for them to retain. By retaining data on a ProStor InfiniVault, users can reduce their overall storage costs.

ProStor InfiniVault - DICOM

The ProStor InfiniVault - DICOM system solves the problem for storage and long-term retention of medical images. It can protect from technology obsolescence by storing images in the DICOM format and using RDX® removable disk cartridges that have a 30-year archival life and allow for usage of higher capacity disks as they become available, with no system changes required. Unlike usage of other technologies such as tape - media and drives - which must be totally replaced when a tape drive technology change occurs (average cycle is 6 years), or non-removable disk systems which must be replaced every 5 years, or optical devices where the drive to read the optical platters is no longer manufactured and the storage capacities are comparatively small, the ProStor InfiniVault - DICOM system protects from the expense of technology obsolescence.

Please select from the following options to learn how ProStor InfiniVault can add immediate value to government users:

RDX Removable Disk Storage

ProStor Systems is the inventor of RDX removable disk technology. RDX provides businesses smart, simple, safe, speedy data protection at an affordable price. . The RDX® removable disk system is designed to protect your valuable information. An RDX system consists of a rugged, removable disk cartridge and an RDX dock. When the RDX cartridge is inserted into the dock, the system backs up data just like a tape drive. The media, which includes a 2.5-inch mobile disk drive housed in a shock-proof casing, can be safely archived for 30 years. The system is designed to backup over 100GB in an hour and retrieves files in milliseconds.
