Certification

Active Archive Certified Architects

The Active Archive Certified Architect (AACA) program was designed to provide the essential knowledge and tools needed in order to properly implement an active archive data center environment. This includes a deep technical dive into the different applications and the tools needed to work with data center administrators to discuss, create and engineer active archive solutions. These tools help address the end user’s need to have solutions that manage the explosive growth of unstructured data.
