Palo Alto, CA – August 7, 2017 – Moonwalk Universal, a specialist in large-scale data management solutions, today announced the latest release of its award-winning data management software to solve the issue of file server bloat and data archive in the Education Sector.

Many schools, colleges and tertiary institutions across the world are faced with increased competition for dwindling resources, which in turn, makes it almost impossible to effectively control the sprawling file growth that is a natural by-product in the business of education.

The traditional data management tools that introduce layers of inefficiency, vendor lock-in, or added complexity are not the answer for most schools, colleges and universities.

Today, along with its most advanced software yet, Moonwalk delivers a robust and affordable answer to this challenge - Moonwalk Starter Edition -available free to users supporting up to 25 TB.

Moonwalk Starter Edition brings file control and automation to the college storage infrastructure, intelligently migrating files to the appropriate tier – on-premise file servers or object stores, offsite storage or cloud services – to slash storage TCO, reduce complexity, optimize resource use, enforce corporate governance and more.

Moonwalk’s unique capabilities manage files according various criteria, such as project, location, user, size, name, age, etc.

The new software includes comprehensive integration and support for the latest file systems and servers, cloud and object stores, including Windows 2016, NetApp 9.1 and OES2015, Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Hitachi HCP, Dell EMC ECS, IBM Bluemix/COS, IBM Spectrum Scale, Scality and Concurrent Aquari.

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
