StorMagic Acquires SoleraTec Technology, Introduces Active Intelligent Repository
BRISTOL, England, March 30, 2021 — StorMagic, simplifying storage and security from the edge to the core, announced today that it has completed its asset purchase of SoleraTec, a video and digital asset management software company. The acquisition expands StorMagic’s offerings with ARQvault video surveillance and digital evidence management solutions, which use multiple tiers of storage, including the cloud. ARQvault is the industry’s first active intelligent repository, according to the company, and it allows customers to gather, store and find data forever—at half the cost of competing solutions.
According to Gartner, edge, including hardware, software and services, will grow to a $450 billion market by 2025. Data at the edge is growing exponentially due to companies accelerating their digital transformation and IoT implementations which drive massive amounts of unstructured data like video, audio, images and sensor data. Vertical industries driving this growth include retail, energy, healthcare, manufacturing, and law enforcement, where very large datasets typically require expensive storage systems and significant management resources. StorMagic ARQvault allows customers to gather this data from anywhere, store it forever and find it fast – and save customers at least 50 percent on their total storage expenditures.
ARQvault stores data as objects on any type of storage including all-flash disk arrays, SAN, NAS, tape, optical or any public cloud and lowers the cost of storing data by at least 50 percent as compared to disk-only systems. All of the data stored by ARQvault is always available and can be quickly searched so customers can find any type of data fast, regardless of when it was written or where it currently resides.
“StorMagic continues to enhance its technology portfolio, execute upon its edge to core strategy and deliver the most comprehensive suite of products that can store, protect and use data with affordability in mind,” said Brian Grainger, CRO and member of the board of directors. “The SoleraTec asset purchase marks our second major expansion in just twelve months. Now armed with virtual SAN, encryption key management and video solutions, StorMagic can truly deliver a forever data platform to address the needs of our edge customers.”
