List pricing for the ActiveScale P100 system starts at $0.22 per gigabyte and is available for immediate order."The nice thing about the Active Archive System is that it plugs directly into the Versity Storage Manager without any special modifications," said Bo Kennedy, director of Architecture, OvationData. "We don't have to change our workflow at all. In fact, the Active Archive System enhances our workflow. Object storage provides both economic and performance advantages but the challenge to any system is scaling efficiently. We look forward to seeing ActiveScale's solution to this challenge."
