Key features of Komprise

Active archiving

You can manage inactive data differently from active data. By moving inactive data to IBM Cloud Object Storage, you can save as much as 70 percent on your storage costs while freeing up tier-1 storage capacity.

Replication and disaster recovery using Cloud Object Storage

If you want to keep a copy of your data in an object storage archive in the cloud or your data center for redundancy and disaster recovery purposes, the Komprise copy policy can continuously copy data to IBM Cloud Object Storage to provide a replication site. In a disaster recovery situation, this archived data can be more easily accessed from another site directly using IBM Cloud Object Storage or as files by spinning up a Komprise Observer virtual machine (VM).

Data analysis and interactive ROI visualization

You can set various data management objectives and play with “what if” scenarios to understand their projected impact on footprint and costs. Komprise software interactively projects how the data footprint at the source will change based on the chosen objectives, the cost impact and the projected ROI.

Move data with no changes to user access

Komprise can move your data transparently to IBM Cloud Object Storage without using any proprietary agents or static links on the storage systems — mechanisms that have traditionally caused problems. The way users access files is designed to be transparent, and users and applications continue to see and access the data as they did before. The data is accessible both as files and as objects in IBM Cloud Object Storage, so applications can be run against the data natively in the cloud.

Flexible deployment options

Choose from on-premises, private cloud, public cloud or hybrid cloud options that use a common software infrastructure with flexible license arrangements.

Scales to handle data growth

The solution scales as needed by directing your NAS data to virtually unlimited capacity. The web-scale storage platform helps performance and capacity scale independently — reaching exabyte levels and beyond.
