Nuix Unstructured Data Indexing Engine Receives U.S. Patent Office Recognition of Its Unique Parallel Processing Capabilities

Nuix, a worldwide provider of information management technologies, is due to be issued a patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on core features of the Nuix unstructured data indexing engine, with additional patents pending. Nuix’s unique parallel-processing approach to unstructured data has underpinned its rapid growth and success in the eDiscovery, investigation and information governance markets.

“Nuix can index unstructured data faster than any other application on the market because it was designed from the outset for parallel processing,” said Eddie Sheehy, CEO of Nuix.

Approximately 80% of the data organizations store is unstructured—including email, other communications, documents and images. The highly complex systems that organizations use to store the largest volumes of unstructured data often have poor search and management capabilities—their contents are increasingly becoming “dark data.”

“Without Nuix’s massively parallel processing technologies, organizations will find it extremely difficult to gain insights into enormous unstructured data sets quickly and thoroughly enough to achieve tangible, defensible business benefits,” said Sheehy.

The patent describes a unique combination of load balancing, fault tolerance and intelligent processing technologies that enable Nuix to index vast quantities of unstructured data with forensic precision, even in complex storage repositories such as archives and compliance storage. These technologies maximize processing speed and scalability on a small hardware footprint, enabling rapid deployment of on-premise solutions.

Current customer use cases include:

  • Deleting redundant, obsolete and trivial data from most storage platforms
  • Intelligently migrating only valuable data to new platforms or the cloud
  • Identifying and dealing with risky data such as personally identifiable information (PII), credit card data (PCI) and personal health information (PHI)
  • Locating and managing company records and contracts that are not stored or secured appropriately
  • Conducting rapid, thorough eDiscovery and investigation on the most relevant data
  • Automating searches to highlight breaches of company policies
  • Enabling employees to search all their own data, organization-wide
  • Combining searches over structured and unstructured data to understand what happened and why
  • Unlocking value by mining unstructured data for business insights and intelligence.

“The practical outcome of our parallel processing approach is customers start to see results within hours,” said Sheehy. “They can complete in days or weeks tasks they previous thought impossible.”

CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms. This session intends to bridge the gap by offering an intense learning experience while witnessing the processes and operations to build from zero to a simple, yet functional CI/CD pipeline integrated with Jenkins, Github, Docker and Azure.
Extreme Computing is the ability to leverage highly performant infrastructure and software to accelerate Big Data, machine learning, HPC, and Enterprise applications. High IOPS Storage, low-latency networks, in-memory databases, GPUs and other parallel accelerators are being used to achieve faster results and help businesses make better decisions. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Michael O'Neill, Strategic Business Development at NVIDIA, focused on some of the unique ways extreme computing is being used on IBM Cloud, Amazon, and Microsoft Azure and how to gain access to these resources in the cloud... for FREE!
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, shared success stories from a few folks who have already started using VM-aware storage. By managing storage operations at the VM-level, they’ve been able to solve their most vexing storage problems, and create infrastructures that scale to meet the needs of their applications. Best of all, they’ve got predictable, manageable storage performance – at a level conventional storage can’t match. ...
"We do one of the best file systems in the world. We learned how to deal with Big Data many years ago and we implemented this knowledge into our software," explained Jakub Ratajczak, Business Development Manager at MooseFS, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Traditional IT, great for stable systems of record, is struggling to cope with newer, agile systems of engagement requirements coming straight from the business. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, William Morrish, General Manager of Product Sales at Interoute, will outline ways of exploiting new architectures to enable both systems and building them to support your existing platforms, with an eye for the future. Technologies such as Docker and the hyper-convergence of computing, networking and storage creates a platform for consolidation, migration and enabling digital transformation.
