Veritas, Princeton Partner On Data Management

The vendors have integrated Princeton Softech's database archiving with the Veritas' Data Lifecycle Manager for customers who need to manage structured data and application performance.

Princeton Softech and Veritas will partner on data/information lifecycle management solutions, the two vendors said Monday.

The companies integrated Princeton Softech's database archiving solutions with the Veritas' Data Lifecycle Manager and its data management portfolio for customers who need to manage structured data and application performance, whether for regulatory reasons or to reduce costs.

According to Jim Lee, vice president of product marketing at Princeton Softech, DLM/ILM must be able to handle three different data types: structured data, like that found in a database; semi-structured data, like e-mail; and unstructured data like pdf files, rich media and MP3s. "We will enable them to do end-to-end DLM for structured data"for database and database apps.

The partnership signifies lifecycle management's evolution beyond e-mails and fixed documents to embrace database applications like Oracle and Peoplesoft, for example. The Meta Group estimates that structured data is growing at 125 percent each year, and that loss or slow retrieval of structured data can cost a company millions of dollars.

The two vendors have identified each other as strategic vendors and will do co-marketing and joint selling under the agreement, Lee said. The agreement is not exclusive; Princeton Softech has a similar deal with Network Appliance for other products.
