Introducing Application Information Optimizer

Headshot 100X100.jpgBy Calvin Zito, @HPStorageGuy  vexpert 2012 logo.gif


I recently had the chance to catch up with Joe Leung and learn about Application Information Optimizer.  This is a new product - well, sorta of new - it used to be called HP Database Archiving software.  It's now part of the HP Autonomy Information Management team's portfolio and while there's a new name for this product, there's also lots of new functionality.  In this podcast, Joe walks me through what's new. 


Before you listen to the podcast, let me summarize what Application Information Optimizer (AIO) does. It moves inactive structured data from either production or legacy systems to lower cost on-premise or cloud storage environments.  What's new here (besides the name) is that it has built-in integration with HP Autonomy Consolidated Archive, HP TRIM, HP Vertica, and Autonomy IDOL


With all the focus on archiving unstructured data, AIO is a great solution for databases that are crammed with old, stale data that isn't really needed.  AIO can decrease your data footprint and when you have smaller, more efficient databases, you can accelerate backup, recovery, and replication times.  Also, it follows that you can improve end-user productivity by increasing database performance.


Here's the podcast with Joe:

I am not sure why this happen.

If you know the workaround to resolve the issue please let me know.
