Arkivum, providers of large scale, long term, and cost effective digital archiving solutions and CFMS, a centre that provides access to an on demand high performance computing cluster, today officially announced their strategic partnership.
With state of the art HPC facilities, CFMS and its customers generate huge volumes of data during a typical research project - data that simply can’t be thrown away. In partnering with Arkivum, CFMS can now offer its customers a long-term solution for their data needs.
Once available the research and modelling data can be stored for one to 25 years enabling protection of a customer’s intellectual property (IP) for the future.
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Arkivum, said Eur Ing Nick Buckland OBE, CFMS Chairman. “As an organisation we place a great deal of value in providing our customers with a full suite of services and our relationship with Arkivum supports this vision.
We have progressed from having no original data archiving facility to now offering our customers direct and convenient access to a highly regarded data archiving service provider. “
Jim Cook, CEO of Arkivum explained, “With HPC computing gathering significant momentum in various market sectors, there’s a rise in the amount of data that companies produce as a result. Whether from research projects, simulations or other complex calculations, it is important to protect and safe-guard those investments for the future. CFMS customers are now able to purchase archive as a service as part of their HPC needs.”
