SLOUGH, U.K. -- DataDirect Technologies, the unparalleled leader in data connectivity and mainframe integration and an operating company of Progress Software Corporation (NASDAQ: PRGS), today announced that archive specialist, Clearpace Software is using the DataDirect OpenAccess™ software development kit (SDK) and runtime software components to enable standards-based data connectivity to its NParchive product from any specialized data source or application. Using the custom driver created with the DataDirect OpenAccess SDK and runtime software components, Clearpace customers can connect thousands of existing applications to NParchive making it quick and easy to respond to audit, business and regulatory inquires against long-term, archived data.

NParchive is an extreme data compression product that enables organisations to simply store petabytes of historical data in a fraction of the storage space required for that same data in production environments – helping organisations reduce storage and operational costs, secure historical data and simplify information discovery. Since its release, NParchive has become the optimal destination for inactive data that resides within production databases, data warehouses or log files. It compresses data 20 to 60 times, while keeping archived data online, time-proofed and immutable.

Partnering with DataDirect Technologies allowed Clearpace to avoid the time and resource draining challenge of managing technology outside of its core competence while ensuring its customers required no special tools to query archived data. By using the DataDirect OpenAccess SDK and runtime software components, NParchive users are provided with standards-based access to non-standard data. NParchive users can rest easy knowing their inactive, archived data is readily available for supporting information discovery requests arising from regulatory investigations, litigation, internal audits or business analysis.

Tim Waterton, VP Alliances, Clearpace said: “Working with DataDirect Technologies has enabled us to provide great value to our customers, helping them achieve long-term retention and retrieval of information while reducing the cost and complexity of data storage. NParchive is a stronger platform by enabling archived data to be easily accessed by existing Business Intelligence or reporting tools including Business Objects, Crystal Reports, Cognos and Microstrategy.”
