DATAGLOBAL EXTENDS WINDOWS SERVER 2008 R2 FILE CLASSIFICATION INFRASTRUCTURE TO MASSIVE DATA CENTERS
dg suite Next Generation Data Management Platform Scales Windows Server FCI Capabilities to Large Enterprises Delivering Unprecedented Data Insight To Reduce Storage Management Costs
GAILDORF, GERMANY/SAN JOSE, CA. (October 11, 2010) - dataglobal , a leading technology innovator of Unified Storage and Information Management (USIM), today announced the integration of its dataglobal dg suite with Windows Server 2008 R2 File Classification Infrastructure (FCI) to extend its classification capabilities for legacy data on all Windows Server platforms. An enterprise-class storage and information management software solution, dataglobal dg suite delivers the highest performing data classification, migration, archival and retrieval capabilities in the industry. With its new FCI extension, dataglobal dg suite is able to analyze and classify Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows and Windows Server 2003 data files at a deeper content level than ever before possible, allowing organizations to streamline eDiscovery, better manage information governance and compliance, augment and automate records management, improve security and significantly reduce storage costs.
"Unstructured content makes up 80 percent of the data in today's organizations, and it is the most difficult data to manage and leverage because it is stored across multiple systems such as content management, email and file systems with zero visibility into what it is," said Wolfgang Munz, CEO of dataglobal. "This lack of insight results in significant business issues because there is no way to know which information is valuable and which is useless. Using FCI with dataglobal dg suite enables application and platform independent file classification to be extended to an entire enterprise, ensuring that the right data is maintained on the appropriate storage infrastructure commensurate with its priority to the business, delivering significant cost savings and capacity management capabilities to large enterprises."
FCI, one of the core features of Windows Server 2008 R2, brings data classification to the server level by providing a robust identification system based on properties defined by administrators, delivering a powerful platform that can effectively and efficiently manage data and storage resources within the enterprise. FCI enables Windows 2008 R2 data to be classified according to its business value or how often it needs to be accessed, with the most critical or often-used data stored on the fastest media while other data can be stored on slower and less expensive media. A highly automated, centrally managed storage management platform, dataglobal dg suite has the ability to scan over ½ billion data files per hour in the data center, enabling administrators to regularly analyze the composition of their data storage. Combining the FCI data classification capabilities with dataglobal dg suite to extend this classification across the enterprise allows administrators to scan, classify, sort, migrate and archive Windows files in a more detailed way than before, while enabling individual files to be quickly located and retrieved as needed. The result is the first storage platform capable of delivering real-time data intelligence on a daily basis, enabling vital resource allocation and capacity management decisions in today's data centers.
dataglobal (dg) is a global leader in data analysis, classification, management and archival technology which provides high-performance analysis and management of information resources across heterogeneous enterprises of all sizes.
