How much data does your Enterprise hold? How much data is now only in your backup system. If you had to pull out information, would it still be there? A storage specialist has to think of primary and secondary data – what is accessed all the time, and what is just getting in the way. That is where Komprise comes in, sorting the important data, get the clutter out of the way while also keeping it cataloged for when it does become important.
CEO Kumar K. Goswami presented on storage data management at Storage Field Day 17. There, he lays out the business plan of Komprise – creating a way to sort data seamlessly to the user.
“By 2020, we’ll have 45 Zettabytes of data,” says Goswami. “If you treat all of that data as if it’s the same, it becomes economically and technically non-viable. ”
How Komprise Works
This is the deep dive on the process. Basically, you’re secondary data can be moved to other storage means until it becomes relevant. The process can be wherever you choose – even a cloud storage option. Object stores, tape backup, S3, Azure, or other. All storage that can be cheaper than what your enterprise has.
Mike Peercy outlines in the video (above). Komprise leaves “crumbs”, which can be accessed easier than the data. That way, when something is needed to be accessed, or even moved to primary storage, it can also be done seamlessly.
The secondary storage can also be seen through the cloud observer. You could run queries without running load on the primary storage.
