FileTek, Inc., a pioneer developer of innovative data management and information governance solutions, today announced that its global partner, PHD Brasil Ltda., the distributor of FileTek products in Brazil, recently installed a FileTek StorHouse® data and access management solution at one of the largest federal banks in South America. The bank is using StorHouse to extend and enhance its existing IBM® DB2® Universal Database (UDB) software, which supports database federation. This sale, one of PHD's many StorHouse opportunities in Brazil, is another example of how prestigious global corporations are turning to FileTek to solve their increasingly challenging data management problems.

The StorHouse solution at the bank includes StorHouse/RM and StorHouse/UDB Link components. StorHouse/RM is a fully functional relational manager that optimizes direct, row-level, SQL access to very large volumes of detail data on any storage layer, including tape, in a fully automated data and storage hierarchy. StorHouse/UDB Link is the FileTek wrapper software that implements the connection between DB2 and StorHouse databases. It gives DB2 users near-transparent access to the terabytes to petabytes of data supported by StorHouse.

StorHouse/UDB Link enables organizations to selectively move older, less frequently accessed data from DB2 UDB to StorHouse. Users maintain fully functional, relational access to migrated data not only from the originating DB2 UDB system but also directly from other platforms and applications across the enterprise. By reducing the amount of data in the operational DB2 UDB system, organizations can realize faster database load times; quicker query executions; and reduced timeframes for performing periodic data backups, space recovery, and general database administration tasks. The bottom line is a lower-cost, infinitely scalable, easily accessible, online solution for DB2 users.

"There is a great interest in StorHouse because of its many unique capabilities. For example, at our recent bank customer installation, StorHouse functions as a dynamic and efficient database extension strategy that enhances DB2 performance, controls its increasing overhead for front-end applications and databases, and maintains easy access to all DB2 data," commented Luiz Pizani, Senior, President of PHD Brasil Ltda. "FileTek technology enables the bank to move historical transaction data from DB2 tables on MVS-managed disk to more cost-effective tape-based tables on StorHouse. Users gain online access to offloaded historical data through existing DB2 applications. In fact, they can submit a single query that accesses both DB2 UDB and StorHouse data at any time."

Mr. Pizani continued, "Working with StorHouse has definitely been a positive experience for our customers. In fact, one customer is contemplating expanding its StorHouse environment to include Oracle applications that support StorHouse access through Oracle Heterogeneous Services."
