Komprise, Inc., an intelligent data management solution provider, is broadening its support of Dell EMC platforms to include Dell EMC Unity along with the already-supported Dell EMC Isilon and Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS) platforms. 

Enterprises now have a simple, unified way to move data into the supported Dell EMC platforms from any NFS or SMB source, and to transparently archive and replicate data from Unity and Isilon to cloud targets such as ECS. 

"As enterprises continue their digital transformation, Dell EMC is working with its partner ecosystem to realize opportunities from by cloud-enabled technologies while maximizing flexibility," said Sam Grocott, SVP marketing, storage and data protection, Dell EMC. "We welcome the expanded support of Dell EMC platforms by Komprise."

The data-aware management software empowers businesses to manage massive scale of data growth while unlocking data value. Komprise analyzes data across NFS and SMB/CIFS storage, and moves data transparently across supported storage platforms. It requires no agents, no dedicated hardware or storage, no complex setup or proprietary integration, delivers native access to data in the cloud, and is delivered as a hybrid cloud Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). 

The patent-pending scale-out solution works across any NFS, SMB/CIFS and REST/S3 storage.

"As rampant data growth continues, enterprises are looking for cohesive ways to understand and manage data across their various storage platforms," said Krishna Subramanian, president and COO, Komprise. "Komprise is excited to broaden our support of the industry-leading Dell EMC platforms to provide customers with additional efficiency and flexibility."

Our Comments

Komprise continues its market penetration with a large support of secondary storage platforms, now with new EMC devices. 

Easy to deploy with non intrusive architecture and no stub technique, the  company has introduced a new generation approach in this multi-tier data management market wave that exists for decades with different flavors: HSM, tiering, archiving, migration, DR, cloud-based storage, etc..

Komprise is a software product and no appliance or hardware model are available supporting a pure software-defined storage trajectory.

As some other players did, illustrating an active competition and the desire to create differentiators, the firm offers now a replication feature that complements simply the tiering capability of the solution. This unification of features confirms the new need for comprehensive data management solutions and we expect some market consolidation in the next few months as some vendors understand the key need for a horizontal data management model.
