It was Einstein who said, “Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them,” which is certainly the case for the EMC InfoArchive product. Only two years ago, we formally launched the InfoArchive product and it’s been a rocket ship ever since, pushing the limits of what’s expected from an archiving solution, over and over again.The success of the product has been recognized through the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant for Structured Data Archiving and Application Retirement, where Gartner placed EMC in the Leader quadrant for the first time in its young history. Being recognized as a leader is a fantastic achievement, but we are only getting started with what we call Extreme Archiving, which is focused on the following scenarios:Pushing the boundaries on scale: Our customers face rapid growth of both structured and unstructured data at petabyte scale. InfoArchive offers a compelling return on investment for most enterprises, while addressing scale challenges.Handling many of the most challenging compliance requirements: Regulatory compliance requirements are increasing and undergoing rapid change with new legislation such as MiFID II, the right to be forgotten, and new privacy laws, just to name a few. Organizations need an archive that supports both the scale and complexity of compliance requirements, and InfoArchive is a market leader in this area.Making archives “smart” data stores: By using popular analytics tools for both secure Hadoop processing and real-time analytics at the point of ingestion, InfoArchive enables new use cases, such as real-time fraud detection over structured and unstructured data.Being positioned as a leader in the Magic Quadrant is great step forward and we’re pleased with this recognition. But it’s our long-term strategy to not only become the leader of the leaders, but to explore new business opportunities with and for our customers; opportunities that will come out of large-scale centralized archives with a wide variety of information types. The combination of mining structured data across applications, and new text analytics tools for unstructured data, can be a powerful tool to turn archives into a valuable source for next generation applications.Who knows what limits we will discover over the next couple of years? But one thing we do know is that with EMC InfoArchive, we will work to move beyond them.Gartner Magic Quadrant for Structured Data Archiving and Application Retirement, Garth Landers, Alan Dayley, JP Corriveau, 13 June 2016This graphic was published by Gartner, Inc. as part of a larger research document and should be evaluated in the context of the entire document.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department’s inspector general is launching an investigation to examine whether any former or current department officials “engaged in an improper attempt” to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. Inspector General Michael Horowitz said Monday that the investigation will investigate allegations concerning the conduct of former and current Justice Department officials but will not extend to other government officials. The investigation comes after The New York Times reported that a former assistant attorney general, Jeffrey Clark, had been discussing a plan with then-President Donald Trump to oust the acting attorney general and try to challenge the results of the 2020 presidential race.
ROME (AP) — Pope Francis is marking Holocaust Remembrance Day by warning that warped ideologies can pave the way to another genocide. Francis spoke off the cuff at the end of his weekly general audience. He was commemorating the 76th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp in Poland, where Nazis killed more than 1 million Jews and others. The Argentine pope insisted on the need to remember, saying it was a sign of humanity and a condition for a peaceful future. But he said remembering “also means to be aware that these things can happen again, starting with ideological proposals that claim to save a people and end up destroying a people and humanity.” Francis prayed at the Auschwitz-Birkenau memorial during his 2016 visit to Poland.
