RA'ANANA, Israel -- Exanet, the leader in software-based, clustered enterprise Network Attached Storage (NAS), has announced the availability of ExaSearch, an enterprise-class search engine, which integrates with the companys scalable, high-performance ExaStore software, allowing customers to turn massive amounts of stored data into easily accessible information.
Exanet currently manages close to three petabytes of data globally. Based on feedback from our customers, who have expressed an urgent need to be able to easily locate specific files and information, we have developed an enterprise search solution, further enhancing our value proposition to the enterprise market, says Exanet CEO Rami Schwartz. For our customers, locating files with required information among the billions of files within their storage pool presents a real challenge. Its like looking for a needle in a haystack. Most search applications lack the capabilities of simple integration with storage systems and do not deliver results over multiple applications and multiple protocols in a fast and accurate manner.
The name of the game is accessing the information you need quickly and precisely. Otherwise, you can easily be drowned by a sea of content. Or, conversely, you may not find the essential information that you need, said Tony Asaro, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. Federated search enables leaps in efficiency since it creates commonality where none otherwise exists. It enables you to leverage all of your content independent of the various applications. The value of accessing information quickly and precisely should be self-evident. In the case of compliance, it can make the difference in saving you from a hefty fine. It could provide evidence to support your case during litigation proceedings. During a project, it could save you hours, days and perhaps weeks by providing you with the information you require. And search can also be used proactively to help you to research new product or service ideas and create businesses.
