SAND Technology, an innovator in analytic application infrastructure, recently announced the general release of the SAND Searchable Archive product.

SAND Searchable Archive is a new technology that provides high data compression rates for very efficient data storage without compromising the ability for business people to quickly access the data using standard business intelligence tools and methods. It is designed to work as a complementary data archive with SAND's analytic application platform, SAND Analytic Server and with other vendor's databases and data warehouse products.

SAND Searchable Archive is a highly compact analytic repository that typically stores data in less than 10 percent of the space required by an equivalent relational data warehouse. Early production installations have yielded 80-90 percent compression of input data, which translates to at least 95 percent compression in comparison to a similar indexed relational database.

SAND Searchable Archive'sread-only archive files can be searched using standard business intelligence tools and methods without decompressing the data first. In nearline applications, the selected data can be efficiently restored to the online warehouse or analytic server. In offline configurations, the selected data is queried in place without the need to restore it. SAND Searchable Archive can be deployed on Windows, Linux or UNIX servers.
