Metalogix StoragePoint Certification with EMC Isilon Enhances Performance and Scale of SharePoint Environments
Washington, DC – June 29, 2015 – Metalogix, the premier provider of collaboration content management software to move, manage and secure Office 365, SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, Exchange, Box, Dropbox, Amazon, Google and other leading enterprise content management (ECM) systems, announced today that its StoragePoint solution has achieved VSPEX Labs Validation for EMC’s VSPEX Proven Infrastructure with Isilon.
Metalogix StoragePoint is the leading Remote BLOB Storage (RBS) product that externalizes SharePoint content to improve performance, scale, content security, backup/recovery and overall TCO. StoragePoint moves unstructured SharePoint data, known as Binary Large Objects (BLOBs), from the SQL Server to optimized and affordable external storage tiers, including SAN, NAS and the cloud. StoragePoint improves SharePoint performance, enables storage tiering for SharePoint, helps meet regulatory compliance, and drastically improves backup times.
“VSPEX provides proven infrastructure solutions that are optimized for virtualizing critical business applications including Microsoft SharePoint,” said Pete Eggimann, director, VSPEX Ecosystem program, EMC Corporation. “EMC is pleased that Metalogix has been validated as part our VSPEX Ecosystem running on the Isilon Proven Infrastructure solution to help our joint customers quickly deploy VSPEX solutions with less risk.”
The VSPEX Ecosystem program enables ISVs, such as Metalogix, to validate their offering as part of a VSPEX solution in the EMC Lab. Metalogix channel partners benefit by having a tested and validated solution along with a best practice deployment guide that describes the steps to deploy Metalogix StoragePoint on the VSPEX Proven Infrastructure with Isilon solution.
“The EMC VSPEX program provides value to customers through validated architectures of integrated hardware and software solutions,” said Paul Timmerman, VP of technology, Rolta/AdvizeX. “Metalogix is part of the EMC VSPEX for Isilon program which allows us to deliver tested and pre-qualified application solutions to our customers who have or are planning to deploy Microsoft SharePoint solutions in their environment.”
“As members of the EMC VSPEX Ecosystem program, Avnet and Metalogix coordinate to provide EMC’s value-added reseller partners with SharePoint, Exchange and File Share solutions that solve their customers’ collaboration challenges,” said Eric Barnhart, VP, Avnet Technology Solutions, Americas, EMC Solutions group. “Avnet’s unique capabilities to configure, assemble, integrate and support converged infrastructure systems coupled with Metalogix StoragePoint software allow us to create solutions that our partners can leverage to move, manage and secure content for their customers in their on-site datacenters or in public cloud environments.”
Metalogix also announced support for Isilon’s SmartLock feature, which is included in StoragePoint and began shipping in April 2015. StoragePoint’s Isilon adapter will externalize SharePoint content to Isilon and, if defined by user policy, utilize Isilon’s SmartLock services to apply data retention to SharePoint content. SmartLock prevents data from being altered or deleted for a designated period of time, protecting documents from accidental, premature or malicious alteration or deletion. StoragePoint will automatically apply a specified SmartLock retention period to all existing and new content based on user policy. Additionally, rules can be created to update SmartLock retention based on SharePoint events, like metadata changing.
“EMC continues to be the premier storage company of choice for forward-looking enterprises,” said Jay DeWalt, SVP global alliances and channels, Metalogix. “Metalogix is happy to be a part of the evolution of the storage marketplace as Isilon joins the EMC family of storage products that are certified to run Metalogix StoragePoint.”
