Moonwalk Universal, Inc. announced the latest release of its data management software to solve file server bloat, automate storage optimization and archive for massive data volumes -supporting environments with multiple petabytes and trillions of files.

Version 12 brings file control and automation to enterprise storage infrastructure, intelligently migrating files to the appropriate tier - on premise file servers or object stores, offsite storage or cloud services - to slash storage TCO, reduce complexity, optimize resource use, enforce corporate governance and more. Company solution's capabilities manage files according to project, location, user, size, name, age. A REST API is available for customer integration.

The software includes integration and support for the latest file systems and servers, cloud and object stores, including Windows 2016, NetApp 9.1 and OES2015, Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Hitachi HCP, Dell EMC ECS, IBM Bluemix/COS, IBM Spectrum Scale, Scality, Concurrent Aquari, and Caringo Swarm.

Along with its advanced software yet, the company also introduced its most affordable: Moonwalk Starter Edition, available free to users with up to 25TB. As with the full edition, it automates file mobility from expensive primary storage and bloated NAS systems to lower-cost storage within the network or cloud services, without impacting applications or end users.

"The latest Moonwalk software conquers sprawling infrastructure and sprawling file growth that cannot be resolved with traditional data management tools that introduce layers of inefficiency, vendor lock-in, or added complexity," said Michael Harvey, co-founder and VP, business development, Moonwalk. "We're confident users will see its value so we are offering a free edition to recruit customers with smaller data footprints who want to adopt good data management habits now, before file data spirals out of control, or those who want to try the software in their environment before committing."

Benefits include:

  • Out-of-the-box support for all major cloud and object stores

  • Reduced storage cost of ownership up to 80%

  • Reduced size of production file system volumes up to 90%

  • Zero middleware; zero single points of failure

  • No limits on file count

  • Reporting and analytics for continued optimization and improvement

The solution can be purchased directly or from the company's global network of partners.

The Starter Edition is available at the company website.
