We welcome you to SoleraTec's Phoenix EXP, version 6.5.

SoleraTec is in the business of data management and can effectively address storage needs for digital data assets.

With the SoleraTec solution, digital data assets are captured or ingested into the management solution's Information Repository, where they are stored under complete control, can be searched on, and retrieved with the highest original quality. Depending on the scope of your working environment, the Information Repository is made up of one Vault or many Vaults on your network; each Vault contains a central processing unit (CPU), Phoenix EXP software, and storage.

The Phoenix EXP solution is unique and outstanding compared to any storage management systems because of:

Decentralized Vaults -Your Information Repository is distributed over your network. This offers you a dynamic, server-less solution with a "no single point of failure" where you can get to your data quickly and easily, at any time.
Scalable solution - Rather than having one giant expensive storage unit, you can easily add storage space incrementally as your business grows and your data requirements increase. This promotes significant cost savings, as you can add less expensive storage units.
Multi-tiered storage - Different types of storage units can be integrated into the solution at different times. This supports long-term retention needs and unlimited retention possibilities.

Phoenix EXP - Discovery and Archive

Phoenix EXP provides an easy way to locate and retrieve archived data. This comprehensive solution empowers you to locate and retrieve files without relying on system administrators, and puts the ability to find data quickly and easily in the hands of those who are more familiar with the required data.

Phoenix EXP makes it effortless to locate an individual file or discover collective sets of data related to a particular subject. Simple queries can be built around file attributes. More complex queries can be defined using ownership, subject, and source information as well as content keywords and phrases, and file attribute information. A full suite of boolean operators and wildcard options are available to refine the search even further. Search queries can be constrained to specific storage locations, or they can be defined to span the entire Phoenix EXP Information Repository.

Phoenix EXP manages a multi-tiered solution, meaning that it has a scalable architecture and can manage multiple storage devices. Archives are active and available when files are located online, near-line, or offline.

From ingesting your data with Target and Process, and searching for and retrieving stored files using Search and Retrieve, you will find that with Phoenix EXP all your data management needs are met with ease.

Phoenix EXP has a scalable, multi-tiered infrastructure, where it can manage multiple storage devices across a network for the most affordable long-term retention available. The following is an example of a complete digital data asset management solution.
