Leonovus Inc., a cloud solution software provider, offers a blockchain-enabled software-defined object storage solutions for enterprises. It announced initial findings from it’s August 13, 2019 launch of its free Data Discovery Tool, an integral part of the complete smart filer software product. The new data discovery tool scans of file servers from several potential smart filer customers, on average, 82 percent of the data storage scanned had not been accessed for over last six months. One of the scans even showed that their even more significant amount of unauthorized video data stored on every corporate server. The infrequently accessed agnostic and unauthorized files are set consume expensive storage media and illustrate where the businesses can cut their business infrastructure cost in storage.
We designed Smart Filer with the following principle; it must simple to install with power analytics/ data classifications front-end and data tiering policy engine. To satisfy the storage vendor agnostic and then deployed transparent to the end-user. It has to reduce the cost of data storage by optimizing the expensive, performant on-premises storage resources and leveraging cloud storage. Using Leonovus Smart Filer is three-step process; first, the storage analysis uses the network share scanning capability to classify the mix of hot, warm and cold as well as the types of files in that it resides. IT admins use the resulting analytics to design and implement new storage policies based on various file types and activity.
Administrators configure Smart Filer to offload infrequently accessed data to businesses data storage with typically cloud-based automatically. Users retain access to the files throughout with no changes to how they access them. IT businesses are constantly challenged with retraining to maintain the required primary storage infrastructure that is often near or over capacity. Data grows at a faster pace from several of the sources with most of it completely unmanaged and overburdening the primary storage. Leonovus Smart Filer applies analytics to this data, classifying it and offloading it.
