Autonomy and HP Deliver Archiving, eDiscovery and Search Appliances

Autonomy, an HP Company, yesterday announced the availability of three new HP Autonomy Appliances designed to provide organizations with simplified, reliable, and turn-key solutions for specific applications.

Powered by the Autonomy Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), the new appliances provide organizations with powerful, flexible, and cost-effective solutions for archiving, eDiscovery, and enterprise search. These finely-tuned appliances are optimized architectures based on Autonomy IDOL and HP Converged Infrastructure, including HP ProLiant servers and HP Storage, giving customers industry-leading reliability, performance, and scalability.

The new HP Autonomy Appliances are ideal for today’s business environment. Organizations seek fast and flexible applications that can process growing volumes of human information and structured data. In the case of eDiscovery, businesses often need to respond very quickly to legal and regulatory challenges. The eDiscovery Appliance enables organizations to get up and running immediately, giving legal teams a significant advantage as they prepare their case. In enterprise search there is a growing demand at the low-end of the market for turn-key solutions that enable fast and easy implementations.

The HP Autonomy Appliances are purpose-built solutions that allow organizations to tap in to the power of Autonomy IDOL, Autonomy’s private cloud, and HP Converged Infrastructure. Autonomy IDOL automatically indexes all relevant information, forming an understanding of all conceptually related content and topics within both unstructured and structured information. This unique capability proves invaluable in high-stakes information management applications, such as eDiscovery, in which an organization must quickly identify all relevant content related to a particular topic.

Additionally, the appliances leverage Autonomy’s private cloud, Autonomy Digital Safe, which is the world’s largest at over 31 Petabytes. Autonomy Digital Safe is based on a unique split-cell architecture and grid-based design that is massively scalable, maintaining performance under any load.

“Today’s HP Autonomy Appliances announcement is a great example of the tremendous benefits we can deliver to customers as a result of the combination of HP and Autonomy,” said Mike Lynch, executive vice president, Information Management, HP. “Businesses of all sizes can benefit from Autonomy’s unique ability to understand and process 100 percent of an organization’s data, and by tightly integrating with HP hardware, we will deliver performance and cost-efficiencies that are second to none.”

Key capabilities in the Autonomy Appliances

  • Archiving Appliance - automatically ingests, deduplicates, indexes and extracts metadata from all data types, including audio, video, social media, email, web content and SharePoint files.
  • eDiscovery Appliance - provides end-to-end eDiscovery capabilities, including identification, preservation, collection, processing, analysis, review and production. The appliance also includes a dashboard that provides visibility into each phase of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model, and analysis of critical data points, including case status, cost, data volume and litigation trends.
  • Enterprise Search Appliance - provides visibility into the entire spectrum of enterprise data, from unstructured to structured data. The Enterprise Search Appliance includes automatic categorization, tagging, linking, retrieval and profiling of all forms of data regardless of repository, enabling the delivery of large volumes of pertinent information.
  • HP Converged Infrastructure - enables organizations to accelerate time to business value by turning rigid technology silos into adaptive pools of assets that can be shared by many applications and managed as a service. By building this appliance on an integrated infrastructure of servers, storage, networking and security all managed through a common management platform, clients can speed application delivery in a predictable, repeatable manner for any workload.

HP Information Optimization is a core component of an Instant-On Enterprise. In a world of continuous connectivity, the Instant-On Enterprise embeds technology in everything it does to serve customers, employees, partners and citizens with whatever they need, instantly.
