ZL Unified Archive® Earns Top Visionary Placement with Scalable Unified Architecture to Serve Very Large Enterprises
SAN JOSE, CA – Feb. 14, 2013 ZL Technologies, Inc., the leader in archiving, records management, compliance and e-Discovery software for large enterprises, announced its recent placement as the top vendor in the forward-thinking Visionary category of the annual Gartner Magic Quadrant review for Enterprise Information Archiving. ZL’s unified architecture to handle the needs of very large enterprises along with the required support were cited. The ability to discern the long term needs of the large enterprise and then to design and deliver working solutions to address those needs has been a consistent hallmark of ZL’s strategy and vision throughout the 14 years it has been in business.
Architected for the massive data volumes of the Fortune 500, ZL’s Unified Archive® provides total information governance, using grid-based architecture for extreme scalability, thus enabling data consolidation and management of all unstructured information such as files, emails, and social media. This eliminates data “silos” across the enterprise, which enables ZL’s holistic approach in offering multiple applications simultaneously, namely, e-discovery, compliance, analytics, records and storage management, on one unified platform.
“Big Data is only getting bigger,” said Kon Leong, CEO of ZL Technologies. “But the buzz has been a bit overhyped. Businesses are realizing that before any benefit can be reaped from this mythical ‘Big Data,’ there must be massively powerful infrastructure in place to gather, index, search and manage it. But faced with the disparate systems and silos typically found today, accessing that trove of invaluable information is difficult, if not impossible. This is where ZL’s unified approach makes it possible to not only solve today’s headaches in e-discovery, compliance, records and storage management, but to also be able to convert IT assets into strategic information and competitive advantage.
“We are visionary because that is what the enterprise demands for its long term needs in managing its unstructured data,” noted Leong. “Our product was built with from the ground up with scalability to respond to challenging information governance needs. We will continue to serve this geometrically increasing need for unstructured data control, and the Visionary placement in the Magic Quadrant speaks clearly to our ability to serve a key role in enabling the long-term IT strategies of large businesses.”
