SAND Technology to Run SAND/DNA on HP Integrity Servers
MONTREAL—Feb. 15, 2007—SAND Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: SNDTF.OB), an international provider of intelligent enterprise information management solutions, today announced that its SAND/DNA™ data management solutions will run on HP Integrity servers.
SAND is currently working to deliver SAND/DNA Analytics, SAND/DNA Access, and SAND/DNA for SAP NetWeaver BI for HP Integrity servers running HP-UX 11i v3 as well as the new rx2660 entry level server.
The combination of SAND/DNA running on HP Integrity servers will provide a high-performance solution that enables enterprise customers to cost-effectively retain massive amounts of compressed data for extended periods and to rapidly retrieve this information when needed for greater operational efficiency. Customers can expect SAND/DNA applications to run on HP Integrity servers in early Q2 2007.
“We are pleased to extend SAND/DNA solutions to HP Integrity servers and the new HP-UX 11i v3 operating environment, making our advanced enterprise information management software available to a larger customer community,” said Linda Arens, vice president of global alliances and marketing at SAND. “The combination of SAND/DNA’s advanced information management technology and HP Integrity servers with the robustness of HP-UX 11i provides customers with a mission-critical computing solution that enables them to store all relevant enterprise data in a small footprint, while keeping it easily accessible as needed.”
Data warehouses are growing at exponential rates. A survey by the Winter Corp. found that user organizations estimate their data warehouse systems to more than double in size by 2008. Organizations are faced with this 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 methods to manage and gain control over information systems in a scalable manner. SAND addresses these concerns by enabling organizations to store massive amounts of information in a very small footprint – about 10 percent of its original size – while delivering exceptional performance, scalability and low total cost of ownership. Customers can see a savings of up to 80 percent on their storage needs.
“The increase in data warehouse systems has created a distinct need for effective management,” said Michelle Weiss, vice president of marketing, Business Critical Systems, HP. “With the availability of SAND/ DNA™ data management solutions onto HP Integrity servers combined with mission-critical virtualization of HP-UX 11i, customers can enjoy the benefits of flexible capacity for changing business needs, secured availability for preservation of service levels, and simplified management.”
