GeoEye Selects Cleversafe for Satellite Imagery Active Archive

Cleversafe Provides Dynamically Scalable Storage for Mission-critical Geospatial Big Data

CHICAGO, Jan. 11, 2012 — (PRNewswire) —   GeoEye, the premier provider of the world's highest resolution satellite imagery, location information products and image processing services, has selected Cleversafe, Inc., the industry's most innovative provider of limitless data storage, to meet its requirements for a highly reliable and secure active archive  to support their business mission and to maintain their image archive.

GeoEye's technology enables analysts and experts on the ground to gain significant insight into current and changing geospatial data in order to make critical decisions and support important missions around the globe. In order to collect, process, and analyze massive amounts of geospatial data, GeoEye required a scalable and flexible storage architecture that could accommodate the world's highest resolution satellite imagery, GeoEye-1. Moreover, GeoEye demanded that satellite images be available with zero down time and 99.999% (5 nines) reliability, while keeping costs under control.  Cleversafe's Dispersed Storage Network (dsNet™) active archive solution provides GeoEye with over 99.9999999999999% (15 nines) of annual data reliability and system uptime.

"Our success depends on our ability to collect and store geospatial data thus allowing us to provide our customers access to a vast repository of data," said Robert Poplar, IT Infrastucture Arcitect of GeoEye. "After a thorough evaluation of the storage solutions in the market, Cleversafe's active archive solution was chosen to meet our needs for petabyte scale storage with unlimited future capacity and far exceeded our reliability requirements. The ability to cost-effectively scale without impacting or interrupting operations helps us reduce risks associated with down time."

"Cleversafe's active archive solution will ensure that GeoEye's geospatial data is available to experts on the ground who need access to vital information in order to protect lives, manage risk, and optimize resources," said Chris Gladwin, CEO and President of Cleversafe, Inc. "Our solution guarantees bit-perfect delivery, preservation, and long-term retention of stored data, so satellite images will always be available at their highest resolution," said Gladwin.

The need to store critical digital content and imaging at the petabyte level and beyond can no longer be accomplished with traditional storage solutions. With complex requirements for both security and governance, the need for content preservation and data integrity, it's more critical than ever that companies look at solutions that deliver built-in encryption, multiple levels of integrity checks and high levels of reliability.
