Accelerating Enterprise Hybrid Cloud unstructured data management with Industry-Leading Capabilities for Metadata Analytics, File Content Analytics, File to Object Mobility, and Privacy Risk Classification
Teaneck, NJ. — June 9, 2020 — Data Dynamics, the leader in hybrid cloud file management, today announced the release of Insight AnalytiX 1.1 and StorageX 8.2 as part of its new Unified Unstructured Data Management Platform. Insight AnalytiX is the newest addition to the Data Dynamics product family and delivers file content analytics plus remediation actions for the privacy risk marketplace. StorageX 8.2 simplifies and accelerates the movement of file data to S3 object storage, for both on-premise and cloud deployments.
Data Dynamics’ introduction of Unified Unstructured Data Management provides enterprises a single platform for unstructured storage and data governance leaders with both metadata and file content analytics. By providing clients insight into file attributes and file content, the Unified Unstructured Data Management Platform delivers data driven insight for immediate financial cost savings, data risk classification, and remediation options. In today’s COVID pandemic impacted world, Data Dynamics’ platform and product family additions make up the industry’s most comprehensive, secure, hybrid cloud, unstructured data management platform.
Insight AnalytiX 1.1 introduces two simple-to-use and significant new capabilities to the unstructured storage and file data custodians:
- Privacy Risk Analysis: Analyze the file content of your unstructured data for key Personal Identifiable Information (PII)
- Privacy Risk Classification: Classify key file data with industry standard compliance and governance templates such as HIPPA, GDPR, CCPA, etc.
Insight AnalytiX 1.1 accelerates the company’s technology leadership with a series of new and enhanced capabilities that advance three critical aspects of unified unstructured data management: file data discovery, file content analytics, and templated file data workflows. Insight AnalytiX represents a software born out of years of product development and hundreds of client interactions.
StorageX 8.2 delivers three key data mobility capabilities for the file and object customers and a key reporting functionality to drive optimization:
- File to Object Transform and Sync enables clients to move existing files data to any S3 compliant target platform. This capability allows companies to leverage the cloud for disaster recovery and data protection
- Archive Restoration allows storage administrators to permission self-service recovery using existing RBACs
- MD5 validation provides an industry standard validation on data moved using StorageX for compliance and regulatory requirements
- Duplicate File Report provides customers insights to inefficient Tier 1 storage use and identifies files appropriate for remediation
Helen Johnson, CTO of Data Dynamics, said, “Enterprise are under enormous pressure to modernize and cut costs. Since introducing StorageX Metadata Analytics 2 years ago, we have witnessed many of the world’s largest IT organizations use the power of data insights to implement hybrid cloud and object storage while reducing legacy backup costs and freeing up existing Tier 1 storage assets. The addition of Insight AnalytiX immediately provides clients the ability to discover, analyze, and manage providing Personal Identifiable Information as they act on governance and risk mitigation imperatives.”
Johnson continued, “Data Dynamics pioneered hybrid cloud data management to enable enterprises to move aggressively with IT transformations without the risk or cost of silos of data. More than 2 years ago we released StorageX 8.0, which was architected for the hybrid-cloud world and set the industry standard for modern file data management. Today, with the release of StorageX 8.2 and Insight AnalytiX 1.1 as part of our Unified Unstructured Data Management Platform introduction, we now support 4 public cloud platforms, 8 storage vendors, and new file content analytics technologies to provide enterprises with one platform to efficiently manage their hybrid cloud environments., Data Dynamics’ Unified Unstructured Data Management Platform introduction is a huge step ahead with a much broader range of data services, self-service enabled by automation, simplicity, and flexibility that no other technology can provide in a single software platform.”
“Enterprises operate multi-generation of file servers and NAS, often distributed across different sites, and recently associated with S3 storage. Even if NAS protocols are known and managed for decades, the explosion of data volumes brings new urgency in a compliance climate within a unique cloud era. Understanding file content coupled with modern machine learning techniques in addition to metadata analytics brings new capabilities for unstructured data management. Now you can take actions of specific words discovered in files. Clearly Data Dynamics raises the bar with a rich Unified Unstructured Data Management Platform release.” said Philippe Nicolas, lead analyst at Coldago Research.
StorageX 8.2 is generally available in June 2020. Insight AnalytiX demonstration and POCs are also available in June 2020.
