Application Development Trends – SAND upgrades promise info-on-demand
By Kathleen Richards
SAND Technology has upgraded its data archiving and analytics technology, repackaged it and gained certification for SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence. The company’s Analytic Server and Searchable Archives, based on technology originally developed at Lockheed, are now part of the SAND Dynamic Nearline Architecture. SAND/DNA is a suite of products which allow companies to compress data to about 10 to 15 percent of its raw size, store it in a nearline repository, then retrieve the data for business analysis, using SQL-based tools, without decompressing it first.
