Autonomy and HP Deliver Archiving, eDiscovery and Search Appliances

New HP Autonomy Appliances Provide Easy-to-Use, High-Performance, and Turn-key Solutions for Critical Applications

VIENNA, Austria, Nov. 29, 2011 - Autonomy, an HP Company, today announced the availability of three new HP Autonomy Appliances designed to provide organizations with simplified, reliable, and turn-key solutions for specific applications.

Powered by the Autonomy Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), the new appliances provide organizations with powerful, flexible, and cost-effective solutions for archiving, eDiscovery, and enterprise search. These finely-tuned appliances are optimized architectures based on Autonomy IDOL and HP Converged Infrastructure, including HP ProLiant servers and HP Storage, giving customers industry-leading reliability, performance, and scalability.

The new HP Autonomy Appliances are ideal for today's business environment. Organizations seek fast and flexible applications that can process growing volumes of human information and structured data. In the case of eDiscovery, businesses often need to respond very quickly to legal and regulatory challenges. The eDiscovery Appliance enables organizations to get up and running immediately, giving legal teams a significant advantage as they prepare their case. In enterprise search there is a growing demand at the low-end of the market for turn-key solutions that enable fast and easy implementations.

The HP Autonomy Appliances are purpose-built solutions that allow organizations to tap in to the power of Autonomy IDOL, Autonomy's private cloud, and HP Converged Infrastructure. Autonomy IDOL automatically indexes all relevant information, forming an understanding of all conceptually related content and topics within both unstructured and structured information. This unique capability proves invaluable in high-stakes information management applications, such as eDiscovery, in which an organization must quickly identify all relevant content related to a particular topic.

Additionally, the appliances leverage Autonomy's private cloud, Autonomy Digital Safe, which is the world's largest at over 31 Petabytes. Autonomy Digital Safe is based on a unique split-cell architecture and grid-based design that is massively scalable, maintaining performance under any load.

"Today's HP Autonomy Appliances announcement is a great example of the tremendous benefits we can deliver to customers as a result of the combination of HP and Autonomy," said Mike Lynch, executive vice president, Information Management, HP. "Businesses of all sizes can benefit from Autonomy's unique ability to understand and process 100 percent of an organization's data, and by tightly integrating with HP hardware, we will deliver performance and cost-efficiencies that are second to none."
