Moonwalk Universal Releases 12.10

Enhances free Starter Edition

Palo Alto, CA – June 03, 2020 – Moonwalk Universal, a specialist in large-scale data management solutions, today announced its enhanced free Starter Edition. The latest release of its award-winning software solves data bloat, automates storage optimization and archives for massive data volumes -supporting petabyte environments with trillions of files.

Moonwalk Starter Edition, available free for up to 25 TB of managed data, continues to be expanded with new features and platforms. As with the enterprise edition, Moonwalk Starter automates file mobility from expensive primary storage and bloated NAS systems to lower-cost storage within the network or cloud services, without impacting applications or end users.

Moonwalk brings file control and automation to enterprise storage infrastructure, intelligently migrating files to the appropriate tier – on-premise file servers or object stores, offsite storage or cloud services. Moonwalk slashes storage TCO, reduces complexity, optimizes resource use, enforces corporate governance and more. Moonwalk’s unique capabilities manage files according to project, location, user, size, name, age. A REST API is available for advanced customer integration.

The latest update includes comprehensive integration and support for the latest file systems and servers, cloud and object stores, including Windows Server 2019, NetApp and Isilon, IBM Cloud Object Store, RStor, Wasabi, Amazon S3, Azure, Google Cloud, Hitachi HCP, Dell EMC ECS, Scality RING, Caringo Swarm and Cloudian HyperStore.

“The latest Moonwalk update further addresses unstructured growth that cannot be resolved with traditional data management products and processes that introduce layers of inefficiency, vendor lock-in, or added complexity,” said Michael Harvey, co-founder and senior president of business development at Moonwalk. “We’re committed to solving the challenges of data insight, data management and data mobility and providing our customers with investment protection and infrastructure vendor neutrality.”

Benefits of Moonwalk include:

  • Out-of-the-box support for all major cloud and object stores
  • Reduced storage cost of ownership up to 80 percent
  • Reduced size of production file system volumes up to 90 percent
  • Zero middleware; zero single points of failure
  • No limits on file count
  • Reporting and analytics for continued optimization and improvement

Moonwalk can be purchased directly or from Moonwalk’s global network of partners. Moonwalk Starter Edition is available here
