September 30, 2015 — Santa Clara, CA — Solix Technologies, Inc. (, a leading provider of Enterprise Data Management (EDM) solutions, announced today the Standard Edition of the Solix Big Data Suite.

Solix Big Data Suite Standard Edition is a free Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) framework, built on a single node cluster and packaged in a virtual environment. Solix Big Data Suite Standard Edition features Reports archiving, File Archiving and Solix Secure Search Analytics to allow users to prove their Enterprise Archiving on Hadoop use cases.

Built on the full Solix Big Data Suite, Standard Edition includes:

  • File Share Archiving – Archive files from network file shares into Apache Hadoop, supporting the following types of file shares: NAS devices (CIFS/NFS), Windows Shares, Unix Shares.
  • Solix Virtual Printer – Capture print stream into Apache Hadoop in a compliant and searchable PDF/A format. Applications can print data directly to the Solix Virtual Printer to preserve documents and reports, and access them through a user friendly search interface.
  • Unified archive for storage optimization
  • Built-in full text search and reporting capabilities
  • Integrated ILM – Retention Management and Legal Hold

By 2017, archiving in support of big data analytics will surpass archiving for compliance as the primary use case for structure data archiving, according to the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Structured Data Archiving and Application Retirement (Garth Landers, Alan Dayley, Sheila Childs, 16 June 2015).

“In the era of big data, archiving is a no brainer investment.” – Forrester Research, Inc., 2015 (Market Overview: Big Data Archiving)

“Eighty percent of the data generated by Enterprises is unstructured, be it Files, Reports, videos, images, logs, or clicks. Archiving all of that in a secure central repository, built on commodity storage, compute and open source Hadoop, should equate to huge infrastructure cost savings for Enterprises,” says Sai Gundavelli, CEO of Solix.
