SAND Technology and Total Tec Team to Deliver Advanced Data Management Solutions
MONTREAL-Feb. 6, 2007-SAND Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: SNDTF.OB), an international provider of intelligent enterprise information management solutions, today announced a partnership agreement with Total Tec Systems, a Bell Microproducts company and provider of professional services and technology solutions specializing in HP infrastructure systems. The companies have entered into a joint marketing and sales agreement to offer customers hardware/software solutions for advanced data management that are designed for seamless compatibility and optimal performance.
“We are pleased to offer SAND/DNA™ data management solutions to our customers who need to more efficiently manage their rapidly growing data warehouses,” said Larry Holzenthaler, executive vice president, marketing and sales, Total Tec Systems. “The combination of HP infrastructure, SAND software and Total Tec’s expertise in HP systems and integration provides customers with the assurance that they are receiving best-in-class solutions that meet their requirements for managing very large volumes of data.”
Total Tec and SAND will offer the SAND/DNA product suite (SAND/DNA Access™, SAND/DNA Analytics™ and SAND/DNA for SAP® BI) on HP platforms to customers in multiple markets. The companies have identified many synergies in the life sciences market as well as financial services, utilities, and government markets.
Organizations are faced with explosive data warehouse growth, as well as the demand to support more users, greater query and data complexity and increasingly stringent compliance regulations. These factors are driving the need for intelligent, cost-effective and highly scalable methods for managing information systems. SAND/DNA enables enterprise customers to cost-effectively retain massive amounts of compressed data in a very small footprint – typically about 10 percent of its original size – and rapidly retrieve the information when needed. A centralized data management solution with unparalleled performance and storage efficiency, SAND/DNA dramatically reduces costs and management complexity while ensuring continuous data availability for analysis purposes and improved operational efficiencies.
“Total Tec is a highly regarded HP solutions provider and we are excited to partner with them to deliver a winning combination of industry-leading hardware and SAND’s advanced data management system to enterprise customers,” said Linda Arens, vice president of global alliances and marketing at SAND. “A strong focus on information lifecycle management, storage and data consolidation makes Total Tec a perfect complement to SAND. Our joint customers will benefit from the deep experience both our companies have in these areas.”
This agreement reaffirms our commitment to providing a proven solution that addresses the growing challenges of effectively managing vast amounts of information without compromising the ability to use it for business-critical purposes.”
