    If you find this blog interesting, and either have an interest in or work in data protection/backup and recovery environments, you should check out my book, Enterprise Systems Backup and Recovery: A Corporate Insurance Policy. Designed for system administrators and managers alike, it focuses on features, policies, procedures and the human element to ensuring that your company has a suitable and working backup system rather than just a bunch of copies made by unrelated software, hardware and processes.

Aside – EMC Acquires Kazeon

Posted by Preston on 2009-09-05

EMC has been buying so many companies lately that sometimes it’s difficult to remember who did what, and why they might have bought them.

However, this is one to remember – EMC buying Kazeon, a data indexing/eDiscovery company. (The deal was done a short while ago, but I’ve been tied up enough that I haven’t had time to talk about it before now.) I think it’s becoming more and more obvious that data indexing/eDiscovery is the next wave in ILM; in the end, it doesn’t matter how much data we can store if we can’t find it. Like data visualisation, data indexing is just going to continue to grow and become more and more important.

I’m looking forward to seeing the acquired technology make its way into a plethora of EMC products. I think everyone would agree that SourceOne is the first, most likely candidate. After that though, there’s plenty of other embedded or API based opportunities for it in the EMC product family tree.
