Nyriad Joins the Active Archive Alliance

Boulder, Colo., October 18, 2022 – The Active Archive Alliance today announced that Nyriad, Inc. has joined the organization. The Active Archive Alliance is a collaboration of industry-leading storage and IT vendors that collectively support the use of active archive solutions for data lifecycle management.

“Active archiving technology is constantly evolving as the marketplace demand for new data management strategies increases,” said Betsy Doughty, vice president of corporate marketing, Spectra Logic, and co-chairperson of the Active Archive Alliance. “Nyriad brings a unique perspective to the Alliance with its focus on delivering performant, resilient and efficient active archive solutions featuring the UltraIO storage system. We are pleased to welcome Nyriad to the Alliance.”

Active archives enable organizations to derive value from their vast and growing data sets and are an increasingly important part of data management roadmaps. An active archive leverages an intelligent data management layer and enables online access to data throughout its lifecycle, regardless of which tier it resides in the storage hierarchy. Active archive file systems span multiple media types, including flash, disk, tape, optical, or cloud (public or private), file, block or object storage systems.

Nyriad is the developer of the UltraIOÔ storage system, an all-new system that combines the processing speed of GPUs and advanced algorithms to deliver outstanding performance, resiliency, and efficiency. The UltraIO storage system achieves 18 GB/s sustained ingest by leveraging intelligent data placement. These capabilities allow the system to be built on HDDs instead of the expensive SSD storage tier.

“We are excited to join other storage industry leaders in advancing the mission of the Active Archive Alliance,” said Derek Dicker, CEO of Nyriad. “We look forward to learning from, and collaborating with, other vendors in the Alliance as we all seek to advance active archive solutions for data lifecycle management.”
