Komprise Intelligent Data Management 2.9 Delivers Data Access Anywhere

Customers, for the first time, can evolve their data management strategy swiftly as business needs change.

Las Vegas, NV October 23, 2018Komprise, the industry-leader in intelligent data management, announced today at NetApp Insight 2018 the general availability of Komprise Intelligent Data Management 2.9. As your data strategy evolves across on-prem and cloud, Komprise evolves with you. Komprise 2.9 enables multi-tier data management with full data access from any storage without rehydration.

Traditional tiering solutions focus just on cost and move blocks of data to lower storage tiers while metadata stays on the primary tier. This cripples the ability to evolve and natively run on tiers such as the cloud since data is only accessible from the primary tier and requires rehydration. Unlike traditional solutions, Komprise moves data progressively down classes of storage with full file integrity so customers can directly access data and fully take advantage of native capabilities of each tier. This enables customers to evolve, so the cloud could begin as a lower tier and over time become a primary tier.

Komprise will be showcasing Version 2.9 at NetApp Insight 2018, Booth #801.

“We needed a new storage strategy as our data kept growing,” says Jay Smestad, Sr Director IT Architecture at Pacific Biosciences. “With Komprise, we are able to move data as it ages across Flash, Disk, Tape, and Cloud from multiple vendors. The best part is there is no change to our user access.”

Komprise enables businesses to handle unstructured data growth by identifying cold data, transparently moving data across multi-vendor storage and clouds, and delivering ongoing policy-based archiving, data replication and data migration.

New Data Access Anywhere Capabilities

  • Multi-Vendor Data Lifecycle Management: : Set policies on how data moves across classes of storage regardless of vendor. Komprise seamlessly moves the data as it ages.
  • Powered by Transparent Move Technology™: As Komprise moves data progressively across storage classes, the moved files continue to be accessed from the original source without any disruption to users or applications. No stubs or agents.
  • Data Access from Any Tier, On-Prem or Cloud: Unlike array tiering solutions that are block-based and do not allow direct access from secondary tiers, thus severely limiting their use, Komprise fully preserves file integrity so data can be accessed directly from any tier, on-premises or cloud.

Komprise Intelligent Data Management 2.9 is available now for no additional charge.  For more information and a complimentary assessment of your data, visit Komprise.
