Features

Good reasons for HPE/iCAS

The HPE Complete iTernity Compliant Archive Software (iCAS) provides unrestricted growth up to the Petabyte range and can also support you with long storage periods.

With reliable features for legally compliant, certified archiving, HPE and iCAS provides maximum data security and proof of representation.

HPE and iCAS can be implemented on virtual or physical servers. Simple and uncomplicated.

Flexibility and openness protect your investments and provide more efficient usage of storage capacities. Your total operating costs (TCO) will fall.

Combine the iCAS software with any HPE storage solution and build flexible solutions that meet regulatory requirements.

Data Integrity

The HPE Complete iTernity iCAS offers object-oriented data integrity via hash values: iCAS uses HMAC-SHA-512-bit hashes to secure the integrity of archived data.

Integrated data encryption: iCAS offers an integrated but optional AES256 encryption enabling additional security for stored data.

Self-healing: When iCAS is writing the archive data to two different locations, the system can audit the integrity of the data by comparing the content with the hash value. If the data on one site is corrupt, iCAS can automatically copy the valid data and overwrite the corrupt files.

Data Migration

The HPE Complete iTernity iCAS enables secure and fast data migration during regular operation on storage level. A special copy tool allows compliant data migration by logging the migration process and verifying the copied data.

The combination of HPE Storage and iCAS software delivers a flexible information management solution offering simplified and agile retention of data across your storage infrastructure.

To migrate data off legacy archiving solutions (e.g. proprietary hardware-bound archive silos) advanced services are available that allow to speed up this time intensive process by up to ten times faster than the standard approach.

Certified-compliant Archiving Solution

The HPE Complete iTernity iCAS enables permanent data monitoring. With its self-healing functionality, damaged files can be repaired and long-term data integrity ensured.

Conformity with respective regulations—such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), EuroSox, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) 17a-4(f), Basel II, etc., can be achieved.

iCAS on HPE Storage is based on open industry standards, which enables your data to be transitioned to different models or future technology generations over time—avoiding the migration and cost traps of proprietary storage systems.
