Oakbrook Terrace, IL, United States, 2009/04/23 - Oracle Corp’s takeover of Sun Microsystems and its database archiving storage solution spells drastic changes in the IT world. Analysts foresee that archiving solutions will be direly needed by companies worldwide.
According to a research report released by Enterprise Strategy Group, A Milford, Mass.-based Company, there are about 30,000 petabytes of database information which requires to be archived by the year 2012. The report also revealed that the primary production databases are estimated to grow at the rate of 25% every year, for the next four years.
The META Group has also ascertained that the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for enterprise data is 125%. This makes it clear that enterprises are managing more than twice the amount of data that they manage in the previous year. Database archiving solutions and strategies are touted to be the ideal way to manage data growth and data retention problems.
“Indusa Technical Corp. developed ArchivePlus, the database archiving and purging solution to manage today’s exponential data growth, along with long-term data retention of structured data” says Nandita Nityanandam, Business Development Manager at Indusa. “The solution helps in improving enterprise database performance, data retention of rarely accessed data, and for meeting compliance and legal regulations.”
The world’s yearly data would eventually need about 1.5 billion gigabytes of storage, with an average of 250 megabytes of information per person, so says Peter Lyman and Hal R. Varian in their book How Much Information published in 2003.
The recent deal between Oracle Corp. and Sun Microsystems is expected by analysts to directly impact a plethora of enterprise IT markets and millions of current users. Phil Gartner, Vice-President of Research at Gartner believes that Oracle will stand to benefit from Sun’s StorageTek division for database archiving solutions. Many big-shot tech companies have usurped other database archiving companies too in the past, like IBM’s takeover of Princeton Softech, Applimation’s recent merger with Informia, and HP’s deal with OuterBay. This is a definite indication that the large enterprises foresee a bright future for the concept in the near future.
Nandita adds, “Large databases which store terabytes and petabytes of data eventually impact their application performance negatively. The data takes longer to load, unload, search and recover data. Response time gets tediously slow and maintaining service levels (SLAs) can virtually become impossible.”
ArchivePlus v. 1.0, a database archiving software by Indusa, focuses on archiving data that is under the database management system and structured under a database schema, e.g., a relational database. It is an excellent solution for customers with applications running on Oracle or SQL Server databases that experience difficulties associated with unmanaged data growth, increased cost of ownership, performance degradation and increased downtime. It helps companies to meet uptime requirements thereby accelerating application performance and improving stability.
ArchivePlus- Database Archive and Purge Solution is now published in the Intel® (Intel® BX) Business Exchange Software and Partner Directory too.
