BAE Systems Selects Solix for Enterprise Archiving

Leading defense contractor plans to retire legacy data into Apache Hadoop

December 1, 2015 — Santa Clara, California — Solix Technologies, a leading provider of Enterprise Data Management (EDM) solutions, announced today that multinational defense, security and aerospace company BAE Systems has selected the Solix Big Data Suite for enterprise archiving. BAE Systems partnered with Solix to retire its legacy applications and data, which will help the company reduce costs and meet compliance requirements.

According to Forrester, nearly 80 percent of enterprise data is unstructured, and 60 percent of this subset is stale or non-business related. Gartner recently named data growth as the top infrastructure challenge for data centers. As Forrester’s Noel Yuhanna wrote, “In the era of Big Data, archiving is a no-brainer investment.” Legacy applications require similar action–Capgemini found in its Application Landscape Report that up to 25 percent of applications in a typical enterprise computing portfolio are candidates to retire.

Archiving and/or retiring inactive data and applications into Apache Hadoop using Solix Big Data Suite allows companies to reduce the cost of enterprise data management. For enterprise-grade companies, Apache Hadoop is an ideal platform for Information Lifecycle Management (ILM).

“In a world where users produce 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day, enterprise archiving has become a critical tool for businesses,” said Sai Gundavelli, Founder and CEO of Solix. “We welcome BAE Systems to our growing list of Solix Big Data Suite clients.”
