Fast's search platform will be used in conjunction with Arkivio's auto-stor software, which classifies and organizes data in a structured manner according to its relative importance.
"We can help customers quickly search hundreds of thousands of files using specific content criteria to select only the most important subset to review for business, regulatory, or legal purposes," said Buzz Walker, Arkivio VP of marketing and business development, in a statement. "Our top criteria for a search partner solution was speed of execution, especially one that involved intelligent indexing."
Arkivio said Fast's technology will enable its customers to index data during off-hours while computer cycles are available, so it won't use up processing and networking resources during normal business hours. Arkivio plans to use the Fast technology for so-called "indexing at rest" and not while data is "in-flight" and moving.
