StrongLINK Data & Storage Management

Say Goodbye to Data Silos with StrongLINK

Use StrongLINK to take advantage of the storage you already own while enabling migration to your future storage architecture – all while keeping track of your files with robust search features.

A software based data and storage management solution, StrongLINK addresses long-standing obstacles to data storage cost containment, risk reduction and productivity optimisation.

Find It. Use It. Share It. Own It.

StrongLINK provides a robust search for all your data, whether on local stores or network stores connected by NFS, SMB, FTP or other network file system protocols as well as W3C standard- and de facto proprietary (S3) protocols that are enjoying ever-widening adoption.

StrongLINK Functionality

Data Management made Simple

StrongLINK is middleware, a platform- and workload agnostic software component that does the heavy lifting of data discovery, classification based on metadata, migration, protection and retention per user-defined policy.

Automatic Data Positioning

StrongLINK positions data across heterogeneous storage infrastructure based on user rules associated with file/object metadata.

Optimise your Storage and your Budget

StrongLINK provides intelligent and automated migration of data between different storage types or tiers based data re-reference, freeing up expensive low capacity/high performance storage for active data while placing archival data on more capacious, less expensive infrastructure – including capacity disk or your StrongBox solution.

Easy to Deploy, Even Easier to Use

StrongLINK is delivered as a virtual machine or as an appliance to facilitate rapid deployment. Once installed, StrongLINK discovers both file and object based data automatically. Migration policies can be associated either with specific data types or metadata characteristics, or mapped to specific workflows with known data management requirements.

Future Proof Your Storage…

StrongLINK lets you use the storage you already own and supports all new storage topologies and technologies that you may adopt in the future. Both legacy and converged/hyper-converged storage assets are supported and can be included in a StrongLINK deployment.

…and Keep Your Data Safe at All Times

StrongLINK itself can be deployed in a redundant configuration to eliminate the “single point of failure” issues that confront “global namespace gateways” in the market today. Plus, StrongLINK delivers automated data protection as well as replication that is policy driven. Your data is safe with StrongLINK.

No Rip and Replace: Keep using What You Know

StrongLINK delivers a virtual storage architecture that does not require ripping and replacing current investments in technology or kit. It simplifies the management of both data and storage at a protocol layer and avoids the single point of failure or hardware lock-in.

Bottom Line

StrongLINK is a much-needed solution to the problem of coping with terabytes to zettabytes of data growth rates in large firms and cloud service provider environments and a sensible and smart solution for data management, regulatory compliance, and information wrangling requirements of any data intensive business.
