- Comprehensive Archiving Solution Delivers Innovative Mobile 'Anywhere Access,' Hits 17 Petabyte Milestone, and Wins Market Share
ARMA 2010 -- Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise today announced a series of innovations to the Autonomy Consolidated Archive, Autonomy's comprehensive and integrated archiving solution. These enhancements-which include new "Anywhere Access" capabilities for iPhone, iPad, and BlackBerry users, as well as new "Cloud Connect" features for hybrid deployments-continue to extend Autonomy's position as the market leader in archiving. Autonomy is the market share leader, with 24% market share, according to Gartner's recently released "Email Archiving Trends" report(1) and was named a leader in Gartner's 2010 "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving."(2) The Autonomy Consolidated Archive cloud-based offering also recently passed the 17 Petabyte benchmark, representing the world's largest private cloud.
The Autonomy Consolidated Archive (ACA) is a modular, secure, and integrated solution that enables customers to leverage the same market-leading archiving technology via an on-premise, cloud-based, hybrid, or appliance-based approach. ACA provides the industry's only intelligent governance layer from which businesses can drive their compliance, eDiscovery, and records management initiatives directly from archived data. The solution leverages innovative split-cell architecture which keeps two secure copies of every piece of data, single instance storage design for managing distributed sources and attachments, and hybrid architecture that couples on-site architecture with outsourced services for long-term data management.
Powered by Autonomy's Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), the ACA automatically recognizes concepts and context within all forms of information, and injects this understanding into the company's comprehensive set of information governance modules, which include Autonomy Early Case Assessment, Legal Hold, Introspect, Records Manager, Supervisor, and iManage WorkSite. The ability to understand the meaning of content in the archive transforms its value from merely protecting and storing data, to identifying patterns and leveraging its value for business purposes.
"The tremendous success of Autonomy's Consolidated Archive and the impressive growth of Autonomy's private cloud is the result of our unique vision for this market," said Mike Sullivan, CEO of Autonomy Protect. "Only Autonomy can automatically apply governance policies by understanding the meaning of what's in the information, provide a comprehensive set of modules that tie the archive directly in to a company's compliance, eDiscovery, and Records Management initiatives, and make the data directly available via a cloud, on-premise, hybrid, or appliance approach."
'Anywhere Access' for Mobile Users Including iPhone, iPad, and BlackBerry
The Autonomy Consolidated Archive also includes new "Anywhere Access" capabilities for mobile users, which greatly benefits organizations that are rapidly adopting a mobile and cloud computing strategy. ACA's Anywhere Access technology allows users to instantly find their archived information stored in the cloud from mobile devices, tablets, and desktops, without installing any client-side software. Recent emails are viewed in their native format (PST for Outlook and NSF for Notes). Unlike slow, complex, and costly "file stubbing" approaches, ACA Anywhere Access is designed for the next generation of enterprises, which will increasingly leverage a mobile and cloud computing approach.
Innovative "Cloud Connect" Feature Enables Seamless, Gradual Transitions
The solution includes a new feature called "Cloud Connect" which enables customers to make a seamless, gradual transition to cloud-based archiving. Businesses can use Cloud Connect to maintain a hybrid deployment that includes a combination of cloud and on-premise archiving, allocating data to each environment based on policies and company strategy. "Cloud Connect" greatly benefits organizations who wish to move to the cloud in small stages; for instance, if a business would prefer to move only email over six months old to the cloud, or keep new types of application data, like SharePoint, on premise.
New Connectors Enable Unified View of all Enterprise Content
Autonomy Consolidated Archive also leverages new enhancements to the IDOL Connector Framework, which allows organizations to form a unified view of all enterprise content, removing layers of complexity in data management. The Connector Framework normalizes the control and collection of content to over 400 content repositories and over 1,000 file types. Recently added and improved connectors include EMC Documentum, Microsoft Outlook 2010, Microsoft Business Productivity Online Suite, and Lotus Notes.
Autonomy Consolidated Archive Includes the Following Features -- Real-time capture of massive volumes of email and other electronic files -- Fast and efficient processing, indexing, de-duplication, virtualization, and single-instance storage techniques -- Support for leading storage devices including tamper-proof compliant media -- Unparalleled connectivity with more than 400 available connectors to internal, external and public data sources -- Customizes to the specific language and vocabulary required by the user, supporting a virtually unlimited vocabulary size for an unrivalled range of single and multibyte languages -- Secure managed storage ranging from months to decades with document-level retention policies and secure disposition -- Desktop integration enables offline synch, desktop PST collection, desktop legal hold, and end-user search across both the local index and the archive
