Manufacturing & High Tech
Whether it's building an airplane, assembling a lawnmower or creating a semiconductor chip, the manufacturing and high technology industries have to store and access endless amounts of data to track parts, monitor supply chains and meet requirements on the factory floor.
Much of the design work that previously was done on paper is now handled electronically, from computer-driven simulations to fluid computational dynamics to CAD applications and beyond. And while up-front design and manufacturing applications require tier-1 storage performance and density, those storage performance requirements fall off considerably once designs are completed and stored for the long term. As such, manufacturers and high tech companies alike require solutions that offer them efficient and cost-effective alternatives for recalling and retaining data securely into the future.
