OTTAWA, Nov. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leonovus Inc., (“Leonovus”) (TSXV: LTV) today announced the official launch of its Smart Filer cold data management solution and a special offer in combination with Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage.  

Leonovus Smart Filer solves significant problems related to the storage of cold corporate data by:

  • Optimizing cold data storage costs - reducing total storage costs by up to 75%.
  • Identifying cold data through the rapid generation of file inventory reports.
  • Automating file offload to much cheaper secondary storage according to administrator-defined policy.
  • Maintaining user behavior because files offloaded to cloud or secondary storage appear as if they are still on primary storage.

For 1,500 USD, companies can install Smart Filer and get five TB of Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage for one year.

Smart Filer deploys quickly with file inventory reports generated within one hour.  Administrators can then configure corporate cold data storage policies, based on last access date and file type, and schedule Smart Filer to move data to cloud storage automatically.

While this offer includes Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage, Smart Filer is storage target agnostic and works with virtually any cloud or file storage endpoint. Smart Filer is also an ideal tool for NAS to NAS migrations.

A seamless and transparent user experience was a critical design objective for Smart Filer. Even though a user’s ‘cold’ files have been tiered out to cloud storage, they still appear in their folders as if they were stored locally. Smart Filer uses industry-standard symbolic links to connect the user with their cold files rather than proprietary stub files. This approach avoids the need for agents installed on user desktops or on the file servers and users’ interactions with their files remain unchanged.

“Leonovus Smart Filer is an essential tool for administrators looking to simply tier their cold data to low-cost cloud or commodity storage. We demonstrated our technology to over sixty Managed Service Providers (“MSPs”) at conferences in Las Vegas and Anaheim last month and their feedback indicated a robust immediate need for our technology. Further, Smart Filer was nominated for ‘Xcellence Technology Solution’ award at the NexGen 2019 conference. We are very excited to launch Smart Filer in combination with Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage, which provides a low-cost and complete end-to-end solution for our customers,” said Michael Gaffney, Chair and CEO.

“Wasabi’s partnership with Leonovus brings a new creative and extremely affordable solution to users for cold data storage via Smart Filer, a cloud information lifecycle management solution.  The result is a solution that analyzes existing file storage and extends its capacity automatically and transparently for easier access and a better user experience at a price that is much lower than other solutions out there,” said David Friend, CEO of Wasabi.
