Informatica and Symantec partner on archiving and data discovery

Share this article:

Informatica and Symantec have formed a partnership to combine archiving and data discovery solutions.

Symantec will resell Informatica's Data Archive product alongside its own NetBackup and Enterprise Vault solutions to provide a more robust solution for protecting and archiving large databases and applications.

The companies said that this will address 'the challenges of big data' and customers will be able to improve query performance and reduce backup windows without investing in additional infrastructure and by relocating dormant data from production databases.

Adam Wilson, senior vice president and general manager of information lifecycle management at Informatica, said: “Today IT organisations frequently struggle to back up ever-growing data volumes within ever-shrinking backup time windows. By archiving inactive data using Informatica Data Archive, enterprises can dramatically reduce the amount of time and effort required for backup and recovery.”

Brian Dye, vice president of product management at Symantec, said: “By partnering with Informatica, we add significant capabilities to address emerging needs around managing growth in structured data. Together, we are able to deliver a comprehensive solution to address the complete spectrum of enterprise archiving and backup and recovery needs.”

Informatica Data Archive is database archiving software that helps IT organisations enforce retention, disposal and security policies for regulatory compliance.

According to Symantec, its NetBackup centralises physical and virtual data protection and eliminates backup problems with end-to-end deduplication, while Enterprise Vault is a solution for integrated content archiving that enables users to store, manage and discover unstructured information.
