The XAM standard features a framework for extensible metadata associated with stored objects, which supports retention/disposition and electronic discovery (e-discovery) capabilities and facilitates implementation of information life cycle management strategies. SAND/DNA’s XAM support enables enterprises to implement a single basic storage architecture and a single set of data governance policies for both unstructured and structured data, and to achieve better compliance with governance requirements at a lower cost.
XAM Plugfests and XAM Hands on Labs (HOL) assist application and storage vendors in developing and implementing XAM based products, testing and validating interoperability across XAM-compliant storage devices, and demonstrating prototypes of XAM-enabled applications and devices.
