Manage Growing Design Data within Flat Budgets

Engineering data management is a challenge as engineering design continues to grow more sophisticated, generating more data. As semiconductor firms undergo consolidation, the problem compounds with silos of storage.
How do semiconductor companies and engineering design firms manage data growth within flat budgets, without compromising engineering productivity?

They Use Komprise.

Komprise solves these engineering and semiconductor data management challenges by providing analytics across your NAS storage into how data is growing, identifies inactive project data and creates a transparent way to manage hot and cold data differently without changing engineering user access to files. Simply set policies to move completed project data to more cost-effective storage targets you choose — on-premise or in the cloud. Save money, but also access the data seamlessly with no changes to users or apps.

Komprise stands apart from other solutions because it gives visibility across our storage and manages data at scale at a fraction of the cost

Use Cases


The growth of IoT, mobile, and cloud are creating tremendous new opportunities for engineering design—but the growing volumes of data need to be managed efficiently for companies to maintain a competitive edge. Komprise enables engineering design firms to cut 70%+ of NAS costs by identifying cold data across NAS storage and transparently archiving and/or replicating this data to low-cost secondary storage. Best of all, engineers don’t see any change and file-based applications continue to work exactly as before.

Key Benefits for Engineering Data Management

Cost Saving

Maximize your tight IT budget by identifying and moving inactive (cold) data off expensive on primary storage using Komprise. Komprise lets you identify cold data across your organization and set policies that are both cost-effective and can be customized for different data types and business unit.

Simple to Use

Komprise is radically simple to deploy and use. In 15 minutes, you can start getting visibility into data growth and usage. Use our planning and analysis tools to plug in your unique costs to get real ROI calculations based on the objectives you can set globally or modify for each business unit and data type.


Komprise moves data transparently so users and applications see their files as if nothing has changed. Komprise does this without the use of static stubs or by making changes to hot data paths so you always will have access to files.

Modern Architecture

Both the size and sheer volume of design data is exploding. Komprise software utilizes a shared-nothing grid architecture that grows on demand and to handle this massive scale of data with intelligent automation.
