Solix Technologies is Positioned as a Leader in Gartner’s 2015 Magic Quadrant for Structured Data Archiving and Application Retirement

Leading Analyst Firm Highlights Trend Towards Big Data Analytics and Petabyte-Scale Archives

Santa Clara, CA – July 7, 2015 – Solix Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of Enterprise Data Management (EDM) solutions, has been positioned as a leader in the 2015 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Structured Data Archiving and Application Retirement. Gartner’s Magic Quadrant is widely recognized as the industry’s authoritative source for assessing vendor competitiveness based on completeness of vision and the ability to execute.

The Gartner analysis points out the convergence between Information Lifecycle Management (ILM), big data and enterprise analytics. Gartner states “the growing use of Apache Hadoop, increasing data warehouse volume sizes and the accumulation of legacy systems in organizations are fostering structured data growth. These factors are leading enterprises to understand how to reuse, repurpose and gain critical insight from this data.”

Also according to the Gartner report –

  • “By 2017, archiving in support of big data analytics will surpass archiving for compliance as the primary use case for structured data archiving.
  • “By 2016, 75% of structured data archiving applications will incorporate support for big data analytics.”
  • “The various distributions of Hadoop are increasingly emphasizing information lifecycle and retention management in Hadoop.”

The analyst firm “expects to see this emerging requirement for Hadoop support going beyond baseline storage management to include support for more analytic tools and other reporting mechanisms, to the point where the line between archiving and active use will blur.”

“Apache Hadoop is ideally suited for Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) solutions because it offers highly scalable, low cost, bulk data storage to help organizations meet the challenges of exploding data growth,” said Sai Gundavelli, Founder and CEO of Solix Technologies, Inc.

“Our customers are seeking this best practice approach to reduce costs, meet compliance requirements and load more data into Hadoop for enhanced analytics.” said Charles Zedlewski, Vice President Products, Cloudera, Inc.
