Discover what Komprise can do for your business

Komprise data management software helps IT organizations extend Network File System (NFS) and Server Message Block/Common Internet File System (SMB/CIFS) storage with the scale and cost efficiency of IBM Cloud Object Storage. Komprise software can intelligently identify data across NAS storage and transparently move infrequently accessed data to more cost-efficient IBM Cloud Object Storage — without disruptions to user or application access, significantly cutting storage costs.

Benefits

Save storage capacity

Save up to 70 percent of your network-attached storage capacity by moving inactive data to more cost-effective IBM Cloud Object Storage.

Reduce costs

Gain a quicker ROI by significantly cutting primary storage costs.

Keep data safe and secure

Deliver transparent access to archived data for users and applications.

Improve data insights

Manage your file storage more effectively by providing an in-depth analysis of your data.

Key features of a Komprise solution

IBM integrated solution

A solution with IBM Cloud Object Storage and Komprise can be purchased and supported directly from IBM or an IBM Business Partner. The solution has been fully tested and validated by IBM and is part of our validated solutions portfolio.

Transparent active/archive

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.

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.

Easily 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.

Disaster recovery for files using IBM COS

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).

Gain agility and flexibility

IBM flexible payment plans help align infrastructure investments with workload needs.
