Qosmos and RainStor Partner to Deliver High Performance Collection and Retention of Big Data

Summary: Qosmos' Network Intelligence Technology and RainStor's Patented Compression and Retention Solution Helps Organizations Manage the Volume and Velocity of Big Data With a Lower Total Cost of Ownership

PARIS -- (Marketwire) -- 10/26/11 -- Qosmos, the leading provider of Network Intelligence (NI) technology and RainStor, an infrastructure software company specializing in online retention of Big Data, today announced a technology partnership designed to enable organizations to collect, filter, query, manage and scale massive volumes for regulatory compliance, network forensics, and other business intelligence purposes.

Communication Service Providers (CSPs) and ISPs are required by law to retain many types of communications records for specific time periods, typically up to seven years. Enterprises and governments need to store and access historical network data for cybersecurity, network forensics and auditing. The combination of Qosmos' Network Intelligence technology and RainStor's patented compression and data reduction solution results in a much lower cost data retention repository -- with automated intelligence to collect and store only the data needed, and only as long as required.

"The speed at which network data is being created has increased twenty-fold in recent years, and ISPs, CSPs and other organizations have reached a point where they are now deploying unique, purpose-built technology solutions that collect and retain Big network Data efficiently and cost-effectively," said John Bantleman, CEO at RainStor. "Collecting, parsing, extracting, and storing these large volumes of network data for future downstream processing and analysis has never been more important -- at a time when cost management has never been more critical."

Qosmos Network Intelligence technology identifies and extracts data traveling over networks in real time with unparalleled precision and depth, identifying the hundreds of protocols required for communication transactions as well as the thousands of types of metadata surrounding the data itself. Qosmos' innovation of metadata extraction provides the intelligence to filter and collect only the data that an organization requires to be stored, such as the need for CSPs to retain detailed records to comply with government regulations for lawful interception.

RainStor offers a specialized database whose patented technology uses sophisticated compression and de-duplication techniques to store and manage Big Data while reducing the data footprint size by 95% or more, compared to traditional approaches. Data retained in RainStor can be continuously queried via SQL or standard BI tools, which provides the business with the analysis required to drive critical business decisions.

Together, the two solutions provide organizations with the ability to process data at network speed and in real time, compress and retain it on commodity platforms, resulting in a lower-cost, easy to deploy and more scalable alternative to traditional relational or data warehouse technologies. Leading solution providers and end-user organizations can leverage these best-of-breed technology solutions to better manage voluminous data being generated at rates of billions of records per day, benefitting from more efficient collection and retention at the lowest cost per terabyte.

"RainStor's patented features make it a uniquely compelling and game-changing offering for the retention of Big Data within the communications and cybersecurity markets," said Thibaut Bechetoille, CEO of Qosmos. "Paired with Qosmos' real-time Network Intelligence technology, we are able to offer a solution to our joint equipment and software provider customers that will deliver higher performance, greater control over critical data assets, and ease of deployment."
