Information Lifecycle Management products often focus
on the management of specific silos of information within
your organization. Multiple products, for example, will
assist you in the automated archiving and E-discovery of
your E-mail messages based on policies you define; while
other tiered-storage products will allow you to shuffle
your must-save data to and from various storage mediums,
based on their relative worth to the organization at any
given time and their defined compliance timeframes. Though
each data management need in your organization shares similar
characteristics (information classification, automated
policy-based data movement, etc.) if you’re like most shops
then you must manage several different applications to meet
these needs–one application for each of the main types of
data you accumulate.

New ILM player Scentric, Inc. this week introduced their
flagship product offering, a data classification and management
platform for Enterprise deployments. Called Scentric Destiny,
the key platform components can be distributed across departmental
and/or geographic boundaries for scalability and boasts as a
key feature the ability to manage all forms of data; including
files, E-mails, and databases. With Scentric Destiny, you
can implement tiered storage, automated archiving, and any
other data classification and policy-based data movement
infrastructure that you require without requiring multiple
point products and with the ability to scale out as your data
storage needs grow. Though initially supporting Windows
data (Windows servers, Exchange, and SQL Server) the vendor
states that they’ll support other platforms in future
releases. Scentric Destiny is expected to be generally
available next Monday and leads our list of key

briefings for this week.

Also making their debuts this week are Univa Globus Enterprise,
a commercially supported Grid infrastructure based on the
Globus toolkit; and Type80 Syslog, with the ability to automatically
route mainframe console messages to TCP/IP syslog compatible
