GRAU DATA and COMBACK extend partnership for XtreemStore
Schwäbisch Gmünd June 24, 2021 – The long-term partners GRAU DATA and COMBACK are expanding their partnership with a further product class and an expanded clientele. From now on COMBACK is the exclusive sales partner for the new XtreemStore from GRAU DATA.
The XtreemStore has been completely redeveloped and is suitable for companies that have to store and manage extremely large amounts of data of several petabytes. The hardware-independent, scalable and object-based software solution is equipped with an S3 interface as standard and designed for data archiving via disk on tape media. The GRAU DATA XtreemStore object store eliminates the limitations of hierarchical storage in traditional file systems and block storage. Areas of application are, for example, universities, research institutions, libraries or organizations in the healthcare environment, as well as enterprise companies.
A special feature is the additional DICOM / HL7 interface, which is only available through cooperation with COMBACK. In combination with the S3 interface, this open interface is particularly important for the healthcare market, as it enables large amounts of data to be archived independently of PACS manufacturers and at the same time represents a more cost-effective alternative.
“With our new XtreemStore we are addressing companies that need to store and manage very high data volumes sensibly and without the technical limitations of conventional storage solutions. For this we need a competent partner who, firstly, is very familiar with this special IT environment and who also has access to companies and organizations that need such solutions. With COMBACK we have exactly the right partner at our side and we are looking forward to many joint XtreemStore projects, the first of which are already in the planning phase with customers, ”said Harry Weik, Head of Sales & Marketing at GRAU DATA GmbH.
“With the XtreemStore as an object-based software solution, especially for long-term storage and archiving of files, we bring our customers high added value. As COMBACK, we offer the solution both as an on-premise installation and as a service in our data centers. Our customers can use the XtreemStore as stand-alone object storage or in combination with our archive solution DPArchive. Another possibility is the connection to PACS systems via the DICOM / HL7 interface. With the XtreemStore from GRAU DATA, we round off our portfolio in the area of archiving and long-term storage, ”says Marcus Stier, Head of Product Management at COMBACK GmbH.
