Solix Technologies, Inc. Announces ILM Partitioning

ILM policy and heat map partitioning improves application performance; Reduces storage cost

Santa Clara, CA – September 25, 2013: Solix Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of Enterprise Data Management (EDM) solutions, today announced Solix EDMS ILM Partitioning. Database partitioning improves application performance and reduces storage costs. By partitioning within an ILM framework, application performance improvements and storage cost savings may be realized within compliance and data management policy frameworks.

Data growth has a big impact on application performance, and application owners may elect to reduce data volumes to achieve dramatic application performance improvement. By partitioning database tables based on heat maps, datasets are reduced allowing applications to run faster. Solix ILM Partitioning is policy based improving the manageability, compliance and availability of application data.

Solix ILM Partitioning features include:

  • Tiering
  • Merged partitions
  • ILM policy engine
  • Software-only solution
  • Referential integrity
  • Subsetting
  • Heat map

“ILM and the management of aging data is often an afterthought, and retrofitting plans to incorporate strong ILM strategies —”garbage collecting” after the fact — is more difficult than building in this discipline upfront,” wrote Gartner analyst Sheila Childs. 1

“ILM partitioning can be an effective solution to data growth challenges,” said John Ottman, Executive Chairman, Solix Technologies. “Active archiving and partitioning complement each other when managed through a common ILM framework.”
