Large Financial Services Advertiser Chooses SAND Technology to Facilitate Fast Information Access and Enhance Customer Service
SAND/DNA Access Data Management Platform Provides High-performance and Efficient Data Storage
MONTREAL – Jan. 10, 2007 – SAND Technology, Inc., (OTCBB: SNDTF.OB), an international provider of intelligent enterprise information management solutions, today announced that a large financial services advertiser has selected SAND/DNA Access™ software to more efficiently manage its 5 terabyte data warehouse system and facilitate the delivery of user-requested information online. The firm cited excellent data load and query performance, in addition to its high rate of data compression, as the reasons for its decision. The firm is using SAND to tackle the challenge of efficiently storing information in a very large data warehouse, while allowing queried information to be returned quickly on an ad hoc basis. The speed at which the software can retrieve information was a primary factor in the customer’s decision to purchase SAND/DNA Access.
SAND/DNA Access allows organizations to effectively balance impressive storage economy with high levels of data availability. Its unique, highly compressed storage format typically occupies 5-10 percent of the space required by a traditional indexed data warehouse while allowing users to access the data directly using standard SQL-based tools and methods. Compatible with most popular hardware and software environments, SAND/DNA Access brings highly economical and accessible nearline storage to existing data warehouse systems.
“We are very pleased that, after looking at other industry-leading solutions available, SAND/DNA Access was the product of choice for this customer,” said Robin Carr, vice president of sales for SAND Technology. “A successful proof of concept demonstrated that the SAND product’s performance was superior, and met the customer’s requirement for very fast access to information that would ultimately enhance its level of customer service.”
