Sep 16, 2010 (12:09 PM EDT)


ANN ARBOR, Mich., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Metalogix Software, the premier innovator of Microsoft® SharePoint® storage life-cycle management, archiving and migration tools, today announced a key partnership with Equilibrium, the leading provider for SharePoint Visual Asset Management Solutions. The partnership offers a cost-effective and highly-scalable answer for customers who desire to easily store, search and access large amounts of Digital Media Assets within SharePoint.

Winner of Microsoft's® SharePoint® 2010 Innovation Award, StoragePoint enables organizations to automatically move media to lower-cost tiers (e.g.: levels) of storage platforms as files become less relevant or inactive based on simple-to-configure rules. Installed directly within SharePoint Central Administration, StoragePoint also optimizes system performance and is completely seamless to users.

Equilibrium's Mediarich® for SharePoint provides simplified visualization of over 400 file-types, including all types of video content.  Along with an enhanced set of self-service asset management capabilities, Mediarich enables immediate exporting and batch processing of video files from their original format to just about any file-type, frame rate or audio setting.  

"Just about every company wants to further leverage their SharePoint investment," said Mark Brazeau, General Manager of Metalogix Development.  "By offloading content out of the SharePoint database, StoragePoint enables organizations to store massive amounts of media onto virtually any mix of Direct–attached, Network or Cloud-based storage platforms based on their particular performance or economic requirements.  When coupled with Equilibrium's simple-to-use visualization tools, customers now have an extremely cost-effective media management solution."  

"Equilibrium's customers are generally dealing with many files of varying sizes," said, Sean Barger, CEO of Equilibrium. "Uploading hundreds of videos or thousands of large Photoshop files can impact the performance of Microsoft SharePoint. Both the availability of StoragePoint and the new self-service features in MediaRich for SharePoint and SharePoint Foundation-4 better enable our customers to cut upload and ingestion time from hours to minutes, decrease the costs to manage their SharePoint SQL Database, while providing a cost-effective, reliable back-up method for mission critical corporate assets."
