Storage Edition Content

For decreasing the storage requirements of data


Today's applications and regulatory requirements demand additional storage.
Each terabyte of solid state storage carries a total cost of ownership of $7,746 over 5 years.

"The demand for storage has grown more than 50% annually… faster than the rapidly decreasing unit cost of storage."
"The people and software to manage this has grown by 20% or more... even where IT budgets have barely budged."



Decrease the storage requirements of images for the Web and medical records, losslessly, by up to 84% for:
  • Bitmap (.bmp)
  • DICOM, Single Frame (.dcm)

Our Storage Edition attaches to a file system of your choosing. Images are compressed when they are added to the file system and decompressed when they are retrieved from the file system. The process is completely transparent to users and applications. Files that are not images can be stored on the file system as well.
