DataGravity on Tuesday announced a storage appliance that includes search, eDiscovery, deduplication, compression and data protection software in an all-inclusive bundle.
The company, founded in 2012 by CEO Paula Long and President John Joseph, co-founders of EqualLogic, is funded for $42M from General Catalyst, Charles River Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz.
DataGravity’s Discovery storage array combines a primary storage appliance with search, governance and data protection software, as well as inline deduplication and compression software. Designed for the mid-market, which would ordinarily deploy two separate appliances for primary storage and governance, the Discovery array accommodates both block and file data and is flash-optimized. It handles iSCSI, CIFs and NFS traffic and works with VMware. Hyper-V support is on the company’s roadmap.
The Discovery array comes in two models – the DG2200 with 48TB capacity and the DG2400 with 96TB. It is designed for administration by an IT generalist and supports self-service recovery of data.
The Discovery array is expected to ship in October. It will be priced between $50,000 and $100,000 depending on capacity.
