Introducing the world’s most advanced metadata review tool.
The proprietary technology behind SullivanStrickler’s suite of innovative legacy data solutions, Invenire, is the Latin word for “to find,” which is the precise reason for Invenire’s creation. Invenire provides instant insight into key file information and the complete backup information by extracting file-level metadata from backup tapes, backup databases, or evidence files. Invenire is a secure web-based portal that hosts metadata from backup environments and the smartest way to create a legacy data structure. Find files and custodian-level data on backup tapes or evidence images in seconds, with a highly-secure metadata review platform.
How it works
Backup tapes and storage devices are collected or shipped to a Sullivan|Strickler location where data storage devices are imaged, backup tapes are cataloged, and backup software databases are exported. Extracted metadata is processed and ingested to the Invenire database. A username and password are created for the client with collection names determined. Now you can quickly search the entire backup-tape pool by metadata field. Storage devices and backup tapes are typically hosted at the Sullivan|Strickler vault to enable rapid response to file extraction requests made on an ad-hoc basis.
There are three databases behind Invenire that host file-level metadata, backup session-level metadata, and mailbox level metadata (if email). The metadata is imported into Invenire in real-time as projects unfold from backup tapes scanned by TRACS or by importing directly from the backup software database. Metadata extracted can be custom created on an as-needed basis. Still, typically, file path, filename, file extension, file size, and MAC dates are imported to Invenire along with backup session names, policies, and dates. Two use cases we have found are:
For eDiscovery requests, the presence of data can be ruled in or out from backup tapes in seconds. Legacy Data Remediation projects can be managed using Invenire to see whether backup tapes retain data for preservation quickly. Groups of tapes can be quickly and defensibly created for remediation. Legacy Backup tape environments can be retired with massive cost savings.
Libraries of metadata from tapes and evidence images can be added to Invenire, creating a high-speed project management portal to strategize more effectively on matters. Invenire replaces your backup software applications and database.
