DataEndure and Komprise Inc. today announced a partnership that provides organizations with an assessment of their unstructured data, what can be stored using less expensive methods and what can be deleted. By combining DataEndure with Komprise's solution that runs as a service, customers can save as much as 70 percent or more of the cost of storing, protecting and accessing data.
The assessment includes ROI analysis to provide insights to users about what's stored in their data centers, how it is being used and when investments in new storage will meet specific ROI targets. DataEndure helps companies build digital resilience so that their critical information assets are protected and available to the right people, at the right time. The Komprise data management software offers insights into data composition and growth across existing storage on all their unstructured data to identify cold data and transparently move it to secondary storage of the customer's choice at a fraction of the cost. Komprise deploys in minutes as a virtual appliance and works across a customer's storage infrastructure — no storage agents, complex configurations or special hardware required. Komprise is designed to handle today's scale of unstructured data, which can often be billions of files scattered across thousands of shares on multi-vendor storage.
"Organizations of all sizes are struggling with storage growth without the budget to handle it. This pain can be alleviated with actionable insights about what is in their data centers and how they can use the most cost-effective storage method based on the need for accessibility, ongoing archiving or data management," said Kurt Klein, CEO of DataEndure. "The assessment is very eye-opening. Everyone wants to know what is in their storage. Is it redundant, obsolete or trivial? The Komprise solution has an ROI calculator and gives insights about how much money people are spending on Tier 1 storage that could be moved elsewhere. For DataEndure, it's not about customers buying more storage; we want to help customers maximize their budget by being more efficient with their storage."
The DataEndure and Komprise assessment is free and customers can get a view of up to 100 TB of data to understand the profile of their data, how much is not being used and the ROI of transitioning to cheaper types of storage. Once the dark data assessment is complete, DataEndure will reward the organization or manager with a free iPad — no strings attached.
"We declutter the data," said Krishna Subramanian, Chief Operating Officer and Cofounder of Komprise. "Our solution combined with DataEndure's trained technologists allow CIOs, IT and data center managers to gain control of fast-growing data footprints to allow for a more efficient method of storage and ongoing data management as IT budgets stay flat. Komprise shows who is using data, what data is not actively used and what may be stored elsewhere, and leverages the analytics to automate data management at scale."
