50 Fastest Growing Private Companies to Watch 2016

The leading provider of Enterprise Data Management (EDM) solutions: Solix Technologies Inc.


‘Improve application performance, reduce storage costs, and meet compliance and data privacy requirements by achieving Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) goals.’

Solix Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of Enterprise Data Management (EDM) solutions, is transforming information management with the first enterprise archiving and data lake application suite for big data: The Solix Big Data Suite.

Solix is helping organizations learn more from their data with enterprise analytics and achieve Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) goals. The Solix Enterprise Data Management Suite (Solix EDMS) and Solix EDMS Standard Edition enable organizations to improve application performance, meet compliance objectives and reduce the cost of data management across the enterprise.

Solix Technologies, Inc. was founded in 2002 and is headquartered in Santa Clara, California and operates worldwide through an established network of value added resellers (VARs) and systems integrators.

Left unchecked, data growth is the leading data center infrastructure challenge. Data growth impacts application performance, increases costs everywhere, and challenges compliance objectives. Entire data centers may be stripped of cooling and power capacity. Production applications run slower, data replication and disaster recovery processes are impacted because more and more data is harder and harder to move.

And the increasing user demand for specialized analytics to mine enterprise data for better business results has compounded the data growth challenge. Gartner has remarked that, “by 2016, 75% of structured data archiving applications will incorporate support for big data analytics.”

The explosion of both structured and unstructured data and the increasing demand for enterprise analytics on that data is driving adoption of a new enterprise blueprint to manage growing amounts of enterprise data more reliably and at the lowest possible cost. The Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) has rapidly emerged as the leading near line 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 big data repository improves application performance on production tiers, reduces infrastructure costs, and enables powerful big data analytics opportunities.

Solix Enterprise Archiving and 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 full text search.

Sai Gundavelli, Founder & CEO at Solix Technologies states, “By utilizing the Solix Big Data Suite organizations are able to manage larger pools of data more effectively to gain business value.”

Solix Technologies, headquartered in Santa Clara, CA maintains a fast growing global client base including Fortune 500 companies and is developing tools and solutions to address the growing concerns of data explosion. The company runs its Development Center in Hyderabad, India and provides the Solix Big Data Suite featuring Enterprise Archiving, Enterprise Data Lake and Solix App store (Out of box analytics thru pre-integrated applications) on Apache Hadoop as well as Database Archiving, Test Data Management (Data Subsetting), Data Masking ,and Application Retirement across all enterprise data with the Solix Enterprise Data Management Suite (EDMS).

“The Solix Big Data Suite makes the high-volume extraction and retirement of machine data simple, with these larger data sets, we are able to perform meaningful analysis and leverage existing tools to determine root cause analysis and find defects.” – Giri Chodavarapu, VP, Global IT, Finisar.
