Moonwalk Universal Supports generic S3-compatible services

Palo Alto, CA – May 24, 2019 – Moonwalk Universal, a specialist in large-scale data management solutions, today announced the latest release of its award-winning software which supports s3-compatible programs or services to solve unrelenting data growth, automate storage optimization and archive for massive data volumes -supporting petabyte environments with trillions of files.

The latest release includes support for any s3-compatible platform or service and comprehensive support for the file systems and servers, cloud and object stores, including Windows Server, NetApp and Isilon, IBM Cloud Object Store, Amazon S3, Azure, Google Cloud, Hitachi HCP, Dell EMC ECS, Scality RING, Caringo Swarm and Cloudian HyperStore.

“The 12.7 release of Moonwalk allows customers leveraging s3-compatible platforms and services to immediately relocate their older, colder data,” said Michael Harvey, co-founder and senior president of business development at Moonwalk. “Our native support for file systems means that metadata and security attributes are automatically preserved, providing primary storage relief and instant cloud access, without disrupting end users or applications.”

Moonwalk delivers file control and automation to enterprise storage infrastructure, intelligently mobilizing files and objects – supporting on-premise file servers or object stores, offsite storage or cloud services – to drive more value from existing assets, to slash storage TCO, reduce complexity, enforce corporate governance and more.
