Silicon Valley Museum Powers Next Generation Interactive Exhibits With Imation’s Nexsan Storage Solution

Imation (NYSE:IMN), a global tiered storage and data security company, today announced that The Tech Museum of Innovation, an interactive technology and science museum based in Silicon Valley, has deployed its Nexsan E-Series™ storage solution to help power its growing IT infrastructure. Nexsan’s high density system is driving new levels of performance and reliability for the museum and contributing to a more flexible IT infrastructure to support its growth.

Located in downtown San Jose, The Tech encourages the development of innovative new technologies. Hundreds of exhibits attract more than 400,000 visitors a year to explore genetics, space exploration, clean energy, biotechnology and many other sciences and technologies.

The Tech’s use of interactive technology makes it a model for other museums around the world, especially its Smart Museum infrastructure. Designed to enable the ultimate visitor experience, the Smart Museum is a comprehensive, flexible platform for monitoring and measuring visitor behavior and modifying exhibit content to match the needs and preferences of visitors. It can support many avenues for personalization, including games, interactive data displays, tour recommendations, pre-visit learning materials, post-visit curricula, visit summaries and online lessons. The Smart Museum extends the definitions of exhibits and visits to span the website, the museum and Tech Labs, providing critical links to connect all of The Tech’s properties into a cohesive experience.

Robust server and storage platforms are key components

“Powering the Smart Museum system requires a mix of technologies; however, robust server and storage platforms are key components,” said Charles Pearson, systems analyst for the museum. “On peak days, 3,000 people might visit the museum; sometimes as many as 1,000 at any one time. Many visitors are accessing exhibit content and being fed new information every few seconds from a data store, based on their location and preferences. This data represents much of the core of the visitor experience and it needs to be stored reliably and accessed easily.”
