Take the Bite Out of Managing Petabytes
Posted in tech
Storage is emerging from rapid disruption over the past few years. New technologies are helping enterprises keep up with rapid data growth, new ways to use data, as well as new sources of data. Cloud storage delivers agility and savings, SSDs and NVMe flash address the need for fast response times, web-scale architectures give enterprises the ability to scale performance and capacity quickly, and analytics platforms give businesses actionable insight.
Despite their many benefits, even the newest storage systems on the market are silos that trap data. Given how much data is created at leading Fortune 1000 enterprises, managing the storage infrastructure that keeps businesses running from production to operations quickly becomes incredibly complex and costly. Enterprise IT has the daunting task of managing petabytes of data across all of these resources separately. Since moving data is hard, data typically remains on the storage where it was first provisioned until its end of life, which results in data demands being misaligned with storage supply.
DataSphere solves this problem by orchestrating the right data to the right place at the right time to enable the easy use and integration of all the storage disruption that has come to market. Through data virtualization, DataSphere unites storage within a global dataspace that can include direct-attached, network-attached, private and public cloud storage to deliver unprecedented manageability, performance, and efficiency. he storage-agnostic DataSphere platform features an intelligent Objective Engine that automatically moves data across cloud, flash and shared storage to meet evolving application requirements in real time.
Agility, Savings and Scale in the Cloud
Through its global dataspace and Objective Engine, DataSphere enables enterprise IT to easily put cloud strategies into action, integrating cloud storage as an active archival tier as if it were on-premise. This can result in dramatic cost savings, as up to 80% of active data can be moved off expensive flash resources and onto lower cost cloud storage.
Better still, with DataSphere, data is still seen as files and can be retrieved without the need to modify applications. This flexibility makes it possible to move even more data into the cloud, for even greater savings. DataSphere also improves service levels by enabling organizations to use SSD and NVMe flash in commodity servers as a tier for the hottest data, which can also be scaled easily when more performance is needed.
DataSphere automates data management across all storage, ensuring data is placed on the right storage for today’s diverse business demands. It gives enterprises the agility to automatically move data in response to changing business needs, including seamless integration with the cloud. DataSphere also dramatically improves storage utilization to reduce datacenter capital and operating costs to finally make it possible for enterprises to meet the data growth challenge within a budget, even at petabyte scale.
