Datadobi Offers StorageMAP 7.0 to Drive Unstructured Data Insights

Datadobi, a global leader in hybrid cloud data services, is releasing StorageMAP 7.0, offering new features that provide deeper insights into unstructured data environments, facilitate informed decision-making, and enable policy driven data placement.

These advancements are in direct response to the urgent need for businesses to manage the acute risk, cost, and opportunity associated with the rapidly increasing volume of unstructured data that is inundating most enterprises, according to Datadobi.

“Our channel partners are also particularly excited about StorageMAP 7.0 as it enables them to help their end clients unlock business potential while overcoming the inherent challenges of unstructured data, as never before,” said Michael Jack, CRO and co-founder of Datadobi. “And in doing so, our partners are able to further elevate their trusted advisor standing in an increasingly competitive landscape, build long-term value-driven relationships with their clients, and unlock unprecedented opportunities for dramatic revenue growth.”

The single most significant challenge in managing unstructured data is its inherent diversity and its detailed variation. This diversity extends from the data content through the data formats, data sources, data locations, data users, data owners, data managers, and more.

Taming this diversity in large scale environments is the continued mission of StorageMAP. The 7.0 updates are a significant step in its journey to solve the unstructured data challenges of IT and business leaders alike, Datadobi said.

StorageMAP 7.0 features data insight enhancements. Getting insights into the nature of unstructured data and organizing it to make sense to all stakeholders is the foundation of good data management. Insights and organization provide all stakeholders with the information needed to make decisions, create policies, execute actions that implement policies, and monitor policy effectiveness to achieve stakeholder goals.

Managing these diverse goals is complex in large unstructured data hybrid cloud environments storing billions of files.

To address this, StorageMAP 7.0 includes two new features that help companies drive critical decision making about their unstructured data: Custom Dashboards and an Analysis Module.

Custom Dashboards enable the entire range of stakeholders to create a library of views of their unstructured data that is relevant and specific to them. Custom Dashboards use metadata fields and StorageMAP tags to visualize, organize, and monitor the data in a single pane of glass. A Custom Dashboard has a number of key elements that can be added by the user including point in time charts, series charts, and lists among others.

The Analysis Module is the place to explore and analyze trends in an enterprise’s unstructured data and can also be customized to specific user needs. An analysis can consist of multiple layers of filters and classifications that create datasets matching the criteria of interest. The resulting datasets can then be used to create charts, tabular output, and other reports. The results can be included in Custom Reporting Dashboards and used as input for actions such as migration, replication, pipelining etc. all carried out within StorageMAP. 

StorageMAP 7.0 now supports WORM migrations from IBM COS and Hitachi HCP Object systems to any S3 systems supporting the S3 Object Lock API.

Along with other Object and NAS platforms, customers with object-based WORM data on these platforms now have an accurate, scalable, and performant solution to migrate data while retaining legal hold status and retention dates.

Supporting these two systems specifically was necessary because these storage vendors were forced to implement their own proprietary WORM API protocols prior to AWS implementing WORM functionality in the S3 API, according to the company. 

"StorageMAP 7.0 is revolutionizing the way businesses and government organizations handle their unstructured data, transforming it into a powerhouse of strategic advantage,” said Carl D'Halluin, CTO of Datadobi. “With StorageMAP 7.0, customers can not only lead but dominate their respective sectors. No other vendor on the market even comes close to what we now deliver. Datadobi is the future of unstructured data management—unrivaled, unparalleled, unmatched."

StorageMAP 7.0 general availability (GA) is planned for July 2024.
