InfoWorld | SAND/DNA Digs Into Compressed Data
Sand Technology this week updated its DNA Dynamic Nearline Architecture data management technology, which compresses data to about 10 percent of its original size and allows the stored data to be searched without being decompressed. Sand is integrating its Sand/DNA Analytics analytic data repository with its SAND/DNA Access storage archival product, and adding new features to both offerings. The integration allows end-users to pull information transparently from SAND/DNA Access and load it into SAND/DNA Analytics using standard business intelligence tools. This removes much of the time spent on data modeling, according to SAND officials. Sand also introduced SAND/DNA for SAP Business Warehouse, which allows users to move, store, and access highly compressed data from a nearline data repository.
