LEUVEN, Belgium, November 28, 2023Datadobi, a global leader in vendor-neutral unstructured data management, today announced the latest release of its StorageMAP platform. StorageMAP 6.6 adds important enhancements that provide customers and channel partners with an even more powerful solution for analyzing, securing, and taking automated actions on all types of unstructured data at massive scale. In doing so, organizations are able to gain optimum value from their unstructured data, while reducing cost, risk, and carbon footprint.

StorageMAP 6.6 enhancements include:

  • StorageMAP Support for Object Storage:
    • What’s New? StorageMAP can now analyze object data stored on any S3-compliant platform, offering users a complete view of their unstructured data, including both File (SMB and NFS) and Object (S3) data.
    • Significance: This enhancement enables organizations to manage and migrate their data seamlessly, including object migrations, all within the StorageMAP platform.
  • Richer File Copy and File Movement Functionality:
    • What’s New? Users can now search for files based on specific metadata criteria and copy those files to a file or object target. For instance, they can easily copy files from a file server to a data lake for normalization and aggregation prior to copying (or moving) training datasets to apps for analytics and/or AI processing.
    • Significance: This enhancement provides users with more flexibility and control over their data copying and moving processes.

As a result of the enhancements, StorageMAP remains at the forefront of enabling its users to overcome the following challenges:

  • Unlocking the Value of Data: By offering deeper insights and data handling capabilities, StorageMAP 6.6 helps businesses leverage their unstructured data for competitive differentiation, including initiatives such as AI/ML. It transforms data from being a cost center into a profit-generating competitive advantage.
  • Lack of Visibility into Unstructured Data Assets: StorageMAP 6.6 addresses the challenge of limited visibility into unstructured data by providing groundbreaking object and file analytics. This deep visibility allows organizations to understand and manage their vast unstructured data assets more effectively.
  • Scalability Issues: Many businesses struggle to manage the massive scale of their unstructured data, often measured in petabytes and billions of files. StorageMAP 6.6 offers a comprehensive user interface that empowers users to gain insights and take action on data at this enormous scale, overcoming scalability challenges.
  • Complexity in Data Management: Unstructured data environments can be extremely complex. StorageMAP 6.6 simplifies data management by offering a user-friendly interface optimized for large-scale workloads. This helps organizations navigate their data with ease.
  • Inefficient Data Handling: StorageMAP 6.6 provides analytics, organization, and data handling capabilities that were previously unattainable at such a scale. This enables channel partners and end clients to optimize costs and reduce risks, ensuring more efficient and cost-effective data handling.
