A Horizon2020 project
Piql has been granted support for our piqlFilm-GO project by the European Commission Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program, Fast Track to Innovation, under grant agreement 820525
This project will ultimately finetune and enhance our technology to the enable rapid production and maturation of piqlFilm. This means a higher quality product for the end clients, and ensures fast delivery of long-term data storage services even when the customer base grows.
Through constant innovation, we are transforming the market for long term data storage and preservation. We are solving the needs of our clients with a focus on guaranteed data authenticity and integrity, and on keeping data for centuries. This directly addresses the EU objectives to improve data security and develop new tools for managing the ever-increasing amount of data—while reducing end-users’ data storage costs and their CO2 footprint.
In addition, we are focused on delivering a sustainable technology in all aspects—from manufacture, to production and long-term storage.
Our bold innovation is meeting the growing need for offline, secure data storage. This project will further adapt and mature our technology to be a competitive data storage solution. It will have a significant impact on our end-clients, offering savings of up to 80% on long-term preservation cost. In addition, it guarantees future authenticity and availability of their information by using open source formats on an offline storage medium.
The 24 month project began on 1 September 2018 and will be achieved through 6 work packages:
