Moreover, the ForeverNAS solution provides efficient long-term storage functionality.

“We’re extremely proud that SGI StorHouse ForeverNAS has been selected as a Gold winner in the Archive Product or Service – Innovations category of the Golden Bridge Awards,” said Jorge Titinger, president and CEO of SGI. “These awards are testament to the fact that StorHouse ForeverNAS delivers a proven, world-class information lifecycle management and active archive solution that enables organizations to manage all data assets efficiently at extreme scale.”
