Moonwalk Awarded GSA Certification

Moonwalk has been awarded General Services Administration (GSA) certification, allowing the company to offer its enterprise data management system for direct sale to U.S. government agencies.

GSA is the premier procurement source for federal government employees and agencies. GSA works closely with federal agencies and industry partners to establish long-term, government-wide contracts that allow customers in the public sector to acquire a vast array of products and services directly from commercial suppliers. GSA certification is a process instituted by the government that requires potential government vendors to be recognized as credible and established.

Moonwalk software delivers data management with metadata-level precision for all information on network storage, servers and clients. It proactively migrates, copies and moves data according to user-defined rules and policies based on criteria such as age, size, file type, file name, file creator and many more granular classification rules. Moonwalk operates across and between all major file systems, including Windows, UNIX, Linux and Netware environments, and all primary and secondary storage environments. Its stateless architecture requires no additional overhead and is completely transparent to users and applications, with no introduced points of potential failure to ensuring maximum performance and availability. With Moonwalk, applying even one simple rule of moving all files one year or older onto secondary storage can result in an immediate halving in primary storage; applying additional rules typically results in significantly higher capacity savings in some cases in the order of 90 percent.
