PALO ALTO, Calif. -- HP (NYSE:HPQ) today introduced an enhanced version of its HP Database Archiving software to help customers and partners accelerate deployment of archive projects to improve application performance and reduce costs, while enabling information retention for regulatory compliance.
Organizations are facing the challenge of managing increasing amounts of information, along with new legal discovery regulations that require them to retain data for longer than ever before.
To solve this problem, HP Database Archiving software enables customers to better retain, search and retrieve critical database information, from creation through destruction.
The new version of HP Database Archiving includes a visual design environment to help simplify deployments of database archiving projects and reduce costs. The software also extends database coverage to include Microsoft SQL Server and provides new capabilities for Oracle.
HP Designer module, the visual design environment of HP Database Archiving, allows users to rapidly model application transactions, such as purchase orders and sales orders, and to apply business rules and corporate retention policies.
In addition, by reducing the need for specialized skills during implementation, the module enables fast deployment of database archiving projects with existing resources. For example, independent software vendors and system integrators can use HP Database Archiving software, including HP Designer and a developers kit, to quickly build and support integrations with third-party and custom applications.
