StoredIQ and NetApp Deliver Next-Generation Enterprise-Class Information Management Solution

Integrated technology provides increased scalability while reducing cost and complexity of eDiscovery and information management.

Austin, TX - March 16, 2010 - StoredIQ, a leading provider of Intelligent Information Management and eDiscovery solutions, today announced a solution partnership with NetApp to offer customers best-of-breed information management and storage solutions for enterprise environments. Under terms of the agreement, StoredIQ has joined the NetApp Alliance Partner Program and will integrate NetApp® storage into StoredIQ's Intelligent Information Management Platform, an enterprise-class, software-based appliance designed to manage the functional intersection of eDiscovery, Information Governance, Records Management, and Storage Management.

StoredIQ's Intelligent Information Management Platform is designed to easily integrate into an existing corporate infrastructure while reducing IT administration and total cost of ownership by including all the necessary software, hardware, and storage within a packaged appliance offering. StoredIQ is the only mainstream information management solution to include onboard storage for data indices.

The integration with NetApp FAS2000 series NAS provides the greatest feature blend of price, performance, and scalability required by the StoredIQ appliance. Among the market-leading technologies inherent in the FAS2000 series, the StoredIQ platform can also leverage NetApp Snapshot™ technology to back up indices and recover data in the case of disk failure.

StoredIQ also leverages the FAS2000 series' scalability to offer a wide variety of capacities to meet varied customer demands. With the same FAS2000 product family, the StoredIQ appliance can scale from 5TB to 500TB of data under management within a single cluster, growing as the enterprise expands by simply adding additional NetApp NAS capacity.

Customer benefits of the joint solution include:

  • Eliminating the need to indentify, purchase, set up, or maintain a secondary data store to house the indices;
  • Eliminating the costs, risks, and burden of an additional storage platform;
  • Reducing both the deployment time and total cost of ownership, creating a virtual plug-and-play solution for information management and eDiscovery within the enterprise;
  • Scaling rapidly and efficiently to address the ever-increasing amount of corporate electronically stored information.

"One of the most difficult challenges when deploying an information management solution into an IT ecosystem is integrating it into the existing corporate infrastructure," said Keith Zoellner, CTO at StoredIQ. "Combining best-in-class technologies from StoredIQ and NetApp into a consolidated platform limits the impact on our customers and delivers enterprise-class information management features, reliability, and scalability for unprecedented performance and reduced TCO."

"The Alliance Partner Program is designed to bring together innovative and integrated technologies to better enable customer success," said Patrick Rogers, vice president of Solutions and Alliances at NetApp. "This is exactly what StoredIQ brings to the relationship. As the amount of enterprise data continues to expand, StoredIQ's eDiscovery and information management solution helps NetApp customers intelligently and efficiently manage the unwieldy amounts of unstructured data."
