Komprise Empowers Enterprises to Intelligently Manage The Span and Scale of Today’s Massive Data Growth

San Francisco, CA, USA – WEBWIRE

San Francisco, Calif.June 28, 2016 -- Komprise, the first company that enables businesses to automate the management of enterprise data with analytics and insight – across both cloud and on premise, announces its launch today. Businesses can now easily gain analytics to understand how data is growing and being used across their storage infrastructure and transparently move less active data to secondary storage, saving millions of dollars.

Komprise is built with today’s businesses in mind and it eliminates the cost, complexity, and invasive management of prior solutions. With no hardware to deploy, no storage agents, no changes to the hot data path, no complex configurations or proprietary interfaces. Komprise seamlessly works across storage environments, both on-premise and cloud. The solution is unique in that it not only understands how data is growing across a customer’s storage, but it also adapts to the specific needs of their storage environment and network. Additionally, Komprise consists of an architecture that scales on-demand so customers can grow the footprint as needed without over provisioning.

With affordable sub-cloud pricing, Komprise cuts over 70 percent of the storage cost related to buying, operating, managing and protecting storage. More so, the solution enables organizations to increase their ROI by moving less frequently accessed data to secondary storage.

The company has partnerships with EMC, NetApp, Quantum, Google Cloud Platform, and Amazon Web Services, and its customers include Pacific Biosciences, Medplast, and Houston Housing Authority.

“Our data has been growing at an overwhelming pace, making it difficult and expensive to store and manage,” said Jay Smestad, Senior Director of IT at Pacific BioSciences. “We’d been searching for an affordable scale-out data management solution that works across our storage, and enables us to move data to where the best service and ROI for the data is, and not where the users put it, but existing solutions are expensive and often create disruption. We don’t have unlimited budgets, so we turned to Komprise and have seen immense benefits from understanding and being able to dynamically place data without any changes to user access. The interface is intuitive and straightforward, making it simple to manage with instantaneous insight.”  

“Komprise is the ‘Mary Poppins’ bag for data. In other words, endless storage you can’t see,” said Krishna Subramanian, COO & co-founder of Komprise. “We enable enterprises to store data transparently that’s instantly available again when they need it, making the most efficient use of the cloud. Komprise offers automatic and seamless placement and management of both on-premise and cloud data across a customer’s entire storage infrastructure. Our solution also also cuts up to 70% of data management and storage costs.”

“Komprise is taking a truly revolutionary approach to data management,” said Maha Ibrahim, General Partner of Canaan Partners. “They have created a data virtualization concept that enables companies to gain a larger span and scale of data, and significantly cut storage and management costs. If there is any team capable of helping enterprises transition to hybrid cloud, it’s this one.”

This announcement comes on the heels of Komprise and Quantum’s recent partnership just last month. Using Komprise data management, Quantum now offers a joint solution to enable businesses to seamlessly extend storage with Quantum Lattus™ and Quantum Artico™ NAS Management.

Komprise’s founding team has successfully built two prior startups to simplify complex IT infrastructures. Their last company, Kaviza, eliminated expensive storage for virtual desktops and drastically simplified deployments with a scale-out solution. The solution was successfully used by thousands of customers and was acquired by Citrix in 2011.​
