MONTREAL, March 23 — SAND Technology Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:SNDTF.ob), an international provider of intelligent information management software, announced today that Solix Technologies, a leading provider of enterprise data management solutions, has entered into an OEM agreement with SAND Technology to incorporate SAND/DNA Access nearline storage software in its newly-launched Solix ExAPPS Application Retirement appliance. Solix ExAPPS, which is designed to simplify and greatly reduce the cost of retiring legacy applications in the enterprise without sacrificing data preservation, will use SAND/DNA Access to store retired enterprise data in a highly compressed but easily accessible format, with minimal administration requirements.
“We are very pleased that Solix is incorporating SAND/DNA Access in its Solix ExAPPS Application Retirement appliance,” said Linda Arens, VP Marketing and Alliances, SAND Technology. “Application retirement is a very important area of enterprise data management, but the financial and resource costs of storing large amounts of legacy data can potentially be very high.

SAND/DNA enables enterprise customers to cost-effectively retain massive amounts of compressed data in a nearline repository for extended periods, in accordance with any applicable business rules and regulatory requirements, and to rapidly retrieve information when needed. A centralized data management solution with unparalleled performance and storage efficiency, the SAND/DNA suite dramatically reduces costs and management complexity while ensuring continuous data availability. SAND/DNA’s advanced information management technology compresses data to typically 10 percent of its original size, while giving users the ability to query any attributes of the data without decompressing it first. This next-generation capability is ideal for satisfying enterprise compliance requirements as well as for leveraging valuable information in data warehouses
