DataGravity of Nashua is announcing the release of its first product Tuesday, to make it easier for businesses to search the vast troves of data and information they collect and store.
DataGravity, which raised $42 million in venture capital, said its goal is for companies to gain new insights and make better business decisions by analyzing its data more efficiently.“We can tell you a chain of custody about a topic; who’s interacting on a particular topic,” company co-founder Paula Long said last week. “We can say four people were writing articles on robots and using content on robots. ... We could tell you who’s doing most of the writing and most of the reading.”The product also can be used to help track who had access to sensitive company information that was leaked outside the company, she said.
The DataGravity Discovery Series is being offered in two models, with a capacity of either 48 terabytes or 96 terabytes and a list price between $50,000 and $100,000. It will be available to ship in October.
Long, who sold her previous New Hampshire-based company, EqualLogic to Dell for $1.4 billion in 2008, said the initial investment was used for product development, to launch the company and to grow the business.
The company has nearly 80 employees, with about 90 percent working at 100 Innovative Way in Nashua.
In a statement, Long said, “The future of storage is about much more than just the data container; it’s about delivering the integrated technology that lets users hear what the data they’re storing has to say about their business, and we see that future starting now.”
