- StoredIQ, a leading provider of Intelligent Information

manage the functional intersection of eDiscovery, Information
Governance, Records Management, and Storage Management.

management within a single cluster, growing as the enterprise

limits the impact on our customers and delivers enterprise-class
information management features, reliability, and scalability for

management solution helps NetApp customers intelligently and
