NASHUA – One of the city’s highest-profile startups, DataGravity, has released its first product, designed to help mid-sized firms make sense of and learn from the deluge of data that is part of modern business.

The firm has drawn attention since it first opened in temporary quarters on Spit Brook Road because it’s founded by two of the people who created EqualLogic, a Nashua-based storage networking startup that was bought in 2008 by Dell for $1.4 billion.

In May, as reported by The Telegraph, it moved into a permanent home on Innovation Way. On Tuesday, Aug. 19, it left “stealth mode,” announcing DataGravity Discovery Series, which it calls the first “data-aware storage platform that tracks data access and analyzes data as it is stored to provide greater visibility, insight and value from a company’s information assets … enabling mid-market companies to glean new insights and make better business decisions.“

DataGravity said its software architecture “lets IT teams, and security, compliance and line-of-business users unlock the value in their data by automatically analyzing information as it is ingested, without impacting production operations.”

“DataGravity has the ability to not only replace our current storage vendor, but also enhance how we run our law practice by providing insights into data we couldn’t easily search before,” said Chris Berube, IT manager at Law Offices of Joe Bornstein, a DataGravity beta customer, in a press release from DataGravity.

“The future of storage is about much more than just the data container; it’s about delivering integrated technology that lets users hear what the data they’re storing has to say about their business,” said Paula Long, CEO of DataGravity, in a press release.

The DataGravity solution delivers these all-inclusive features at a price competitive with other primary storage solutions, between $50,000 and $100,000.
