MILTON, Australia -- Moonwalk Inc. today announced that it has partnered with Plasmon on a joint solution that provides companies using traditional Hierarchical Storage Management solutions greater control of their datasets and optimal use of their storage infrastructure without the technologys associated management headaches, extra costs and risks.

Extending the capabilities of HSM solutions, Moonwalk 6.0 advanced data migration software can intelligently move, copy or archive files from various platforms and file systems to the Plasmon Archive Appliance based on the business value of the unstructured data under storage. This singular approach enables companies to proactively manage data throughout the enterprise while allowing them to find data, allocate destinations, set rules and policies and run tasks from a single administrator interface that lets them drill down to the details easily and swiftly.

“Plasmon’s UDO Archive Appliance complements the Moonwalk environment by providing the natural repository for infrequently accessed files that must be retained,” said Patrick Dowling, VP of Global Marketing for Plasmon. “Data migrated to the Archive Appliance is secured on both disk and true WORM UDO media. This strategy ensures data accessibility, record authenticity, and the 100 year UDO media life provides long-term access while greatly extending data lifecycles. For our customers this enables their ability to address regulatory compliance and reduce corporate risk, while lowering capital equipment costs and dramatically reducing power consumption in the data centre. Our joint solution gives enterprises a much greater range of HSM capability and a very compelling value proposition.”
