Take On Big Data.
Tap Into the Power of the StoredIQ Platform.
Providing a powerful, infinitely scalable platform for Big Data management, StoredIQ enables organizations to gain visibility and control over unstructured data to meet their eDiscovery, records management, governance, compliance and storage requirements.
Don’t Move Your Data to Manage It. Manage Your Data Where It Lives.
Many Big Data solutions will tell you they need to control your data for you to manage it effectively. In reality, what they’re doing is moving your data to their repositories to ‘lock it down’ so they can charge you when you want to access it. The StoredIQ difference is our ability to dynamically index and analyze data in-place. It’s a practical approach that dramatically improves the speed and reliability of information management.
StoredIQ: Manage-in-Place Strategy
- Look at data wherever it lives across your organization
- Identify content that has value to the different stakeholders of your business and act on it appropriately
- Identify content that has negative value to your business and delete it (or move it)
Traditional ‘Lock Down’ Move-to-Manage Strategy
- Move all content into a mega-repository before you have any insight into what you have
StoredIQ: One Platform, Countless Benefits
The StoredIQ Platform was designed as a smart, strategic weapon to help corporations discover, analyze, and act on terabytes to petabytes of data, in-place, including data classification, records management, compliance, eDiscovery, and storage optimization. By providing an in-depth assessment of all unstructured data across the enterprise, where it resides, the StoredIQ Platform gives organizations critical visibility into Big Data to make more informed business and legal decisions. With the StoredIQ Platform, you can:
- Identify, classify, and manage electronically stored information (ESI) according to business value and risk
- Optimize use of tiered storage solutions
- Automatically execute records retention and disposition policies
- Proactively implement a repeatable eDiscovery process
- Consistently adhere to ESI compliance and governance regulations
Highly Scalable, Integrated Platform Future-proofs Your Technology Investment
The StoredIQ Platform is architected with enterprise features to perform massively parallel and distributed operations. Starting with a small, initial deployment, the StoredIQ Platform can scale seamlessly as the volume of data and number of remote sites increases. Simply by adding additional data nodes, application nodes, and onboard NAS devices, the performance and capacity of the appliance can easily scale to meet the ever-growing needs of the corporation. Further, distributed IT environments benefit from a fault-tolerant clustered design and federated capabilities.
StoredIQ is built upon a single software platform, allowing for multiple policies and activities to be managed and executed from one common interface. Since the data that your legal team needs to identify and collect for a legal matter is the same data that your records management team needs to classify, your IT team needs to store and manage, and your compliance officers need to govern; StoredIQ enables data intelligence to be shared across stakeholders. This integrated platform architecture underpins the data-driven applications within an organization, providing a truly unified solution for information governance.
StoredIQ Platform Highlights
StoredIQ is architected with enterprise features to perform massively parallel and distributed operations and to scale performance as the volume of data and number of remote sites increase. StoredIQ appliances can be scaled to manage petabytes of data through the use of clustering, leveraging multiple servers in a single appliance, and through federation of several clusters for distributed IT environments.
Rapid Deployment and Broad Support for Data Sources
StoredIQ only needs power and a network connection inside the corporate firewall to get started. StoredIQ includes the industry’s broadest set of agentless connectors to immediately begin indexing a company’s unstructured information, including file, email, content management, SharePoint and enterprise archiving systems. Interaction between StoredIQ and data systems is unobtrusive to users and transparent to administrators.
Automated Policy Management and Enforcement
Users can define and execute data management policies driven by IT, legal, or business requirements, and actions such as copy, move, delete, hold, and modify access privileges can be automatically executed upon data objects.
Incremental Data Collection
StoredIQ supports incremental data collections so that only files that are new or have been modified since the last collection will be collected for preservation, ensuring a streamlined and efficient collection process. It also ensures that the same document is not collected multiple times.
Integrated Legal Hold
From notification, to tracking acknowledgement, to analyzing custodial data, and finally collection and preservation – legal and IT users gain complete control and insight into the duty to preserve process with a reliable, repeatable, and auditable solution that seamlessly integrates hold notifications with the collection and preservation of data. StoredIQ supports the ability to hold data ‘in-place’ or on a secure preservation platform; the appliance executes and synchronizes legal hold across all applications, copying or moving data objects to secure retention servers or repositories.
Search and Natural Language Processing
Users can perform granular full text and metadata attribute searches. StoredIQ’s Natural Language Processing identifies word usage based upon context within a sentence. After StoredIQ locates, identifies, indexes and classifies data objects, it then provides powerful precision search and analysis capabilities, enabling users to understand and organize data objects across the organization, regardless of physical location.
Review and Analysis
A rich set of analytical tools including data, classification and storage explorers along with a powerful search interface are provided to help users understand and evaluate the business risk and value of information in data objects. Detailed analysis and review can be performed without first copying or moving data to a retention server or repository.
Classification and Tagging
StoredIQ can classify data with automated object tagging and execute linked policies accordingly. Users can also perform ad hoc tagging based upon entire search result sets or individual data objects within search result sets.
Reports and Auditing
Multiple detailed reports are available in StoredIQ and can be exported in PDF and XML formats. Detailed audit logs are maintained of all policy executions capturing every state and action before and after policy execution.
Data Management and Storage Optimization
StoredIQ provides a vendor-neutral platform to implement sophisticated hierarchical storage management (HSM) for storage planning and optimization based on the business value of data objects.
