Transform Data Management and Reduce Storage Costs in Education

As data continues to grow at an exponential rate, the majority of Education IT budgets are staying flat or even shrinking. Storage costs represent a significant portion of an institution’s overall IT Budget, however, the majority of the data being stored and replicated on high performance, high-cost primary storage systems (60-80%) is cold and not actively used within months of creation.

Komprise provides a comprehensive solution for managing data that provides academic organization crucial analytics and insight into their data as well as the tools they need to lower storage costs by up to 70% without disruption to students/faculty or applications. Top universities are leveraging Komprise so that they can spend less time, money and focus on storage and instead align resources on leveraging technology to enhance academic outcomes.

The addition of Komprise in our file sharing infrastructure has significantly improved our understanding of the data.  The ability to see the types, size, ages, and ownership of the files has improved the data management for both my team and clients of our service.  Being able to sit down with clients and show them the data allows a level of understanding that was never before available.  They are then able to make decisions about how to better manage their own data.
