According to a new press release, “Moonwalk Universal, a specialist in large-scale data management solutions, today announced the latest release of its award-winning data management software to solve file server bloat, automate storage optimization and archive for massive data volumes -supporting environments with multiple petabytes and trillions of files. Moonwalk 12 brings file control and automation to enterprise storage infrastructure, intelligently migrating files to the appropriate tier – on premise file servers or object stores, offsite storage or cloud services – to slash storage TCO, reduce complexity, optimize resource use, enforce corporate governance and more. Moonwalk’s unique capabilities manage files according to project, location, user, size, name, age. A REST API is available for advanced customer integration.”
The release goes on, “The new software includes comprehensive integration and support for the latest file systems and servers, cloud and object stores, including Windows 2016, NetApp 9.1 and OES2015, Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Hitachi HCP, Dell EMC ECS, IBM Bluemix/COS, IBM Spectrum Scale, Scality, Concurrent Aquari, and Caringo Swarm. Along with its most advanced software yet, Moonwalk also introduced its most affordable: Moonwalk Starter Edition, available free to users with up to 25 TB. As with the full edition, Moonwalk Starter automates file mobility from expensive primary storage and bloated NAS systems to lower-cost storage within the network or cloud services, without impacting applications or end users.”
Michael Harvey, co-founder and Vice President of business development at Moonwalk, commented, “The latest Moonwalk software conquers sprawling infrastructure and sprawling file growth that cannot be resolved with traditional data management tools that introduce layers of inefficiency, vendor lock-in, or added complexity… We’re confident users will see its value so we are offering a free edition to recruit customers with smaller data footprints who want to adopt good data management habits now, before file data spirals out of control, or those who want to try the software in their environment before committing.”
