Attune Partners With Data Domain

SAN FRANCISCO -- Attune Systems, Inc., a provider of enterprise-class file virtualization solutions, and Data Domain (Nasdaq: DDUP), a leading provider of Deduplication Storage systems, today announced the availability of an integration of Attunes Maestro File Manager™ and Data Domain’s line of deduplication storage systems for a comprehensive tiered storage solution that lowers storage costs. The two companies also announced Interwoven as the first customer for the combined solution.

Enterprises are faced with an explosion in data growth, as well as increased compliance regulations, data protection requirements and the need for quick restoration and disaster recovery capabilities. The combined Attune/Data Domain solution offers an answer to these problems by applying Data Domain’s deduplicated storage as a cost-effective target for a broad range of secondary or nearline workloads such as archiving, backup and DR. Attune’s Maestro file virtualization product implements policy-based file management across the entire storage ecosystem, allowing files to be automatically placed in appropriate tiers at the time they are created and migrated to different tiers during the data lifecycle.

“Using our Data Domain system and Attune’s Maestro File Manager in conjunction with our existing Network Appliance and Windows-based NAS allows us to implement a storage architecture using best-in class products,” said Raymond Lockley, manager Core Systems at Interwoven. “With Maestro, we can transparently and non-disruptively ensure files are stored on the right platform based on performance, cost and availability requirements. Maestro treats our Data Domain system as a live file system storage tier. This allows us to cost effectively and efficiently deduplicate without impacting our user community.”
