Solix Products Overview

Data is the lifeblood of an organization. An effective Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) program ensures that enterprise data growth is effectively managed within compliance guidelines. Solix Technologies offers an array of ILM solutions to reduce infrastructure costs, improve availability, boost application performance and meet compliance goals.

Solix Big Data Suite

The explosion of both structured and unstructured data is driving adoption of a new enterprise blueprint to enable growing amounts of enterprise data to be stored more reliably and at the lowest possible cost. The Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) has rapidly emerged as the leading nearline storage platform because it provides secure, stable storage for structured and unstructured enterprise data with enhanced access. Moreover, Apache Hadoop represents the lowest cost alternative for highly scalable, bulk storage of enterprise data.

The Solix Big Data Suite leverages an Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) framework and Apache Hadoop to store less frequently accessed enterprise data in a nearline repository. Moving less frequently accessed data to a nearline repository improves production application performance, reduces infrastructure costs and enables powerful big data analytics opportunities.

Solix Enterprise Archiving and Solix Enterprise Data Lake applications utilize best practice ILM processes to ingest and store both structured and unstructured enterprise data. Data retention is based on policies and business rules to ensure proper compliance and control. Universal data access is maintained through structured reporting as well as full-text search.

“We were comfortable with Solix’s approach towards archiving. There are many different technological ways of archiving in an Oracle E-Business Suite environment. We much preferred Solix’ approach, using the logic that Oracle has built into their application. I am confident that we picked the right product and have the right solution for our customers.”
