Hie Electronics packs online storage, backup, and archive into the TeraStack® Solution, significantly reducing the data management requirement of several racks of equipment and disparate systems down to just one dorm-room refrigerator-sized TBYTe®.

In recognition of it sustainable solutions that are helping datacenters and other applications perform optimally with lower carbon footprints, Frost & Sullivan is proud to present its 2009 North American Data Storage Technologies Green Excellence Award in Technology Innovation to Hie Electronics, Inc. The company reduces the carbon footprint of end-users appreciably to enable the migration of data centers to energy efficient units. Its technology is a significant improvement over existing options and increases the lifecycle of storage considerably while reducing the total cost of ownership.

"With the extended lifetime of Blu-ray media compared to magnetic tape and hard disk drives, the TeraStack® Solution significantly reduces data migration requirements and the additional toxic landfill debris from tape and hard drive hardware and media at the end of their useful life," says Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Dilip Sarangan. "The TeraStack® Solution's reduced power requirements and carbon footprint offer a true ecological advantage over competitive storage systems that require thousands of watts just to operate Tier 1 architecture."

The benchmark for Green Data Storage, the Hie Electronics TeraStack® Solution product line, delivers a 90 percent energy cost savings when compared with that of current data storage technology. It integrates an application server with over 50 terabytes (TB) of extendable online, nearline, and offline data storage using only 800 watts of electricity. This compares to competing industry products requiring as much as 24,000 watts per hour.

"Typical industry hard-disk drive RAID solutions with a 50TB capacity range from 6,000 watts and up to operate, with additional power required for their data backup and archival systems," concludes Sarangan. "With a national average of roughly 10-cents per kilowatt-hour and rising, the TBYTe® with it 800 watts power consumption, provides an enormous cost savings advantage."

Just 30 inches tall, the TBYTe® system fits into a 19-inch rack-mount, containing eight TeraStack® storage stacks with a capacity of 6.25TB each. Each TeraStack® can store 125 optical discs. The TBYTe®, with its 8 TeraStacks, can access up to 1000 Blu-ray discs within the unit and can simultaneously record, store, and replay data to remote clients. The media itself is manufacturer-tested to maintain data integrity for 50 to 100 years. The Blu-ray media, spun with copper and silicon, does not rely on chemical dye methods, such as is found in DVDs or CDs, and is thus much more durable. The Blu-ray burners are also backwards compatible with DVD and CD formats.

Further, the media contained within each TeraStack® is energy passive; power is only required when the data is either read or written. The TBYTe® server uses a highly energy efficient multi-core processor. The amount of heat generated when compared to hard-drive based solutions is very low, which dispenses with the rigorous data management environment of large data storage systems. The product has an unequivocal competitive advantage.

Another unique feature of the solution is that each TeraStack® can be easily removed, stored, or remounted in a different TBYTe® unit, and then can use the information stored on the remounted TeraStack® almost immediately. Other stacks can be hot-swapped into and out of a TBYTe® unit or combining multiple units together to work as one solution, providing virtually limitless expansion capabilities.

The robust nature and high adaptability of Hie Electronics products currently give it a very competitive green position in four vertical markets – data backup and archiving; medical PACS hosting and long term medical record systems storage; document scanning and archiving; and video surveillance storage.
