Cobalt Iron Launches Compass Enterprise Object Search

Cobalt Iron, a provider of SaaS (Software as a Service)-based enterprise data protection, has enhanced the search capabilities of its Compass enterprise SaaS backup platform with a new Enterprise Object Search (EOS) feature.

Free for all Compass users, EOS allows the entire enterprise backup landscape to be searched at the object level, including paths, directories, and filenames, to identify and locate important files more quickly.

“The ability to locate particular objects or files across an enterprise is becoming increasingly important in meeting a variety of ever-expanding regulatory, compliance, and e-discovery requirements,” said Paul Linder, product development manager at Cobalt Iron. “Unfortunately, most products on the market are restricted to searches against a single backup server. By allowing users to garner insights from their entire backup data repositories in a single request, Compass EOS streamlines operations for our customers while extending our market leadership in comprehensive data governance.”

To search a backup server’s files, administrators have traditionally been required to attempt a restore of a backup or run a query backup command in the command line interface, which is time-consuming and resource-intensive, needing to be repeated for every backup server across the enterprise. With its ability to search across all backup servers in a single request, without having to utilize computing resources to accommodate an entire restore, Compass EOS allows users to determine if and when an object was backed up, the types of objects that exist, and where in the backup landscape they are stored.
