A Bright New Idea in Storage Management

The StorHouse software-based platform provides unmatched levels of data access and assurance - and the lowest cost per terabyte of storage in the industry. Learn about the key differentiators and benefits of this powerful platform.

At the heart of the powerful StorHouse solution is the CCi Management and Monitoring Environment. This web-based interface provides a single point of access for managing, tracking and reporting on the performance of large-scale StorHouse-based information storage systems located throughout the enterprise.

Leveraging its web-based architecture, CCi may be securely accessed from both inside and outside of the firewall enabling anywhere/anytime management capability for the SGI platform - and a broad array of automated monitoring agents help ensure seamless access to terabytes or petabytes of information for both applications and users.
