Superna Smart Archiver Product Overview


Managing billions of files requires Enterprise solution to manage the life cycle of this data from active state to warm archive to cold archive storage.   Superna Smart Archiver is a Cloud object storage enabled archive platform that automates moving stale data to object storage.   The key to this solution is enabling direct placement of cold data into the low cost storage tiers such as AWS Glacier or Deep archive tier (future release) or Azure Archive.   This reduces the cost of the archive data.

What happens when the data is needed by Users?

The solution will leave an html link in any folder where data is archived.    This link will take the user to a self service portal that allows the user to request data to be recalled.   This portal requires authentication and browsing of archived data in the cloud based on the users folder permissions, ensuring the user can only recall data they have permissions to see within the file system.

The user can select one or more files from the portal and enter an email address to be notified when the data is recalled to the file system.

The solution will recall the data from the archive tiers in the cloud automatically and then restore the data back on the cluster and will email the user when the data has been recalled.
