Recently, Panasonic announced that it has developed freeze-ray, an Optical Disc-Based Data Archive System in collaboration with Facebook. By collaborating with Facebook, Panasonic was able to design freeze-ray to meet the growing demand for more efficient and sustainable ways to store and access cold data — infrequently or never accessed data stored for the long term — in the world’s data centers.
The freeze-ray solution reduces data center operating costs and energy use with strong data integrity. This data archiving solution provides optimal cold storage for protecting data integrity and reducing costs in data centers thanks to the special characteristics of optical discs, including their longevity, immutability, backward compatibility, low power consumption and tolerance to environmental changes.
