Introduction

A Solution Offering brings together all assets in MIKE2.0 relevant to solving a specific business and technology problem. Many of these assets may already exist and as the suite is built out over time, assets can be progressively added to an Offering.

A Solution Offering contains all the elements required to define and deliver a go-to-market offering. It can use a combination of open, shared and private assets.

Executive Summary

Dataupia’s developers claim their data management system is an all-in-one solution – server, storage, and optimization software packaged as a single appliance – and the first and only specifically designed for database and application transparency. Dataupia delivers persistent access to as much data as an organization needs. The combination of highly specialized software and powerful processors allows large amounts of data to remain on-line and ready to be accessed by reporting or analytics applications. The appliance easily dovetails with existing data center infrastructure to quickly augment the reach and performance of applications that depend on data.

Solution Offering Purpose

The Dataupia Satori Server is a new class of data warehouse appliance that delivers unprecedented access to business-critical data by augmenting an organization’s existing data management systems. Unlike other solutions that displace existing technology or specialize in one kind of data access, Dataupia’s innovative design offers a non-disruptive, continuously scalable, and highly cost-effective means to expand data management capabilities.

Key capabilities that are unique to Dataupia’s solution include:
Omniversal Transparency™
Seamless and transparent integration with Oracle, MS SQL Server, and DB2 systems ensures compatibility with existing infrastructure, removing limitations on storage capacity and enhancing all dependent applications, A Plug-and-play solution that automatically and seamlessly supports business application, it delivers rapid deployment of terabytes of data online.
Highly Cost-effective
Starting with a price less than $10,000 per terabyte for persistent access to data, the Satori Server has a very low total cost of ownership based on ease of use, minimal administrative overhead, and conservative power usage.
Continuously Scalable
Each Dataupia Satori Server blade packs 2 terabytes of useable space and scales up to hundreds of terabytes, enabling your data capacity to grow continuously, blade by blade, without disrupting applications or data warehouse operations.
Enterprise Robustness, Reliability, and Security
The Dataupia Satori Server uses proven commodity hardware and meets the industry manufacturing standards (UL, CE, RoHS). Each blade is self-healing, with RAID 5+ hot spares, mirroring, record-level multi-versioning, and fully ACID and transactional compliant. Users can have the peace of mind that the appliance is up and running and is keeping their data safe.

Differentiating Features

Key capabilities that are unique to Dataupia’s solution include:
Persistent data access: Economical online storage of data, self-propagating data redistribution and rapid processing of queries against large amounts of data enable keep data accessible
Continuous Scalability: Continuous, incremental scalability without disruption.
Database transparency: Supports applications running on Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and DB2 databases natively. Accepts data from a range of legacy systems (including mainframe), making previously isolated data available for reporting and analytics.
Affordable: The Dataupia Satori Server houses data for less than $10,000 per 1 terabyte, an exceptionally competitive value for a data warehouse appliance.
Environment Friendly: Fewer storage servers required. Efficient power consumption. Industry compliant (UL, CE, and RoHS compliant) meets standards that exist today.
Ease of Use: Plug-and-play installation. Fully integrated appliance architecture that integrates easily into current data center setups.
  • Management console’s graphical interface simplifies administration.
  • Individual user groups can make applications design and implementation decisions independent of each other.
  • Sits underneath the database ( Oracle, MS SQL Server, and DB2 with additional certifications planned) and operates transparently which ensures compatibility with existing applications.
  • Industry-standard components and open source operating system mean that no specialized experts required.
  • Ability to add incremental blades without rebuilding provides immediate and long-term value.

Key Business Problems

Until now, organizations dealt with growing volumes of data by adding more and more servers. But that took a tremendous amount of processing power and disk space. These server "farms" were very expensive and inefficient as data was constantly being passed around, They also required endless management to monitor performance, allocate resources, and deal wit multiple failure points. As data continues to grow, organizations demand access to more of their data and more flexibility in how they pool and use it.

By architecting purpose-built software and industry-standard hardware into a highly cost-effective and intelligent appliance, the Dataupia Satori Service allows persistent access to hundreds of terabytes of data and extract business-critical information at will. The Dataupia Satori Server makes accessing data easier, providing for greater business insight across all members of your organization.

Mapping to Overall Implementation Guide

A high-purposed combination of software and hardware, the Dataupia Satori Server performs all the complex work of data management within existing database environments and coexists with database servers without affecting dependent applications. It is designed to scale effortlessly to handle fluctuating performance loads and continuously increasing database sizes.

When planning for implementation the following components must be considered:

  • Data Source
  • Type of Data
  • Current Databases Used
  • Data Storage Timeline Requirements

Mapping to the SAFE Architecture Framework

Dataupia's all-in-one solution—server, storage, and optimization software appliance, is consistent with the SAFE Data Warehousing element capabilities and is claimed by the developers to be the only specifically designed solution for database and application transparency. Dataupia delivers persistent access to as much data as an organization needs.

The Dataupia Satori Server transparently leverages existing database infrastructure and delivers persistent access to as much data as an organization needs. The combination of highly specialized software and powerful processors allows large amounts of data to remain on-line and ready to be accessed by reporting or analytics applications. It easily dovetails with existing data center infrastructures to quickly augment the reach and performance of applications that depend on data.

Mapping to the Information Governance Framework

Growing data retention laws require organizations to store more and more data every year. Compliance also demands effective IT controls that allow the system to meet the increasing demands of regulators. What people working in compliance fear, naturally, is ineffective implementation and monitoring of IT controls with an inability to deliver a robust audit trail.

Dataupia developers claim the solution augments current data auditing and security solutions with an ability to cost-effectively provide audit trial access to months or even years of data online. Dataupia enables online storage of up to hundreds of terabytes of data, self-healing with RAID-5 and is fully ACID compliant.
