Core Competency: Data

Storage solutions should respond to changing business needs and be integrated across the datacenter for greater mobility and availability.
Traditional storage infrastructure is rigid and difficult to manage efficiently. Today’s storage and virtualization technologies enable you to use existing data capacity more efficiently and more affordably. By placing your data in the right place, at the right time, and at the right cost, you can rapidly respond to changing business needs. With an automated datacenter, you can not only protect your data, but minimize recovery time, and deploy new technologies without disruption.

50%
of Data Is Considered Dark

A recent study found that up to 50% of stored data is considered “dark”, i.e. their value is unknown, and up to an additional 35%  could be redundant, obsolete, or trivial. This increases the cost and complexity of primary storage, backup infrastructure, and business continuity requirements.

80%
Business Process Reinvented

Gartner predicts that by the year 2020, 80% of today’s business processes and products will be reinveted, digitalized, or eliminated. Traditional analog and manual processes will be automated, including both physical and human elements. Many, if not most, decisions will be algorithmic, based on automated judgment.

40%
Go out of Business

An estimated 40% of companies go out of business after a major loss of data or an extended service outage. Creating a comprehensive data availability plan before disaster strikes can have a significant influence on whether you keep the lights on after the lights go out.

 


 

Data Optimization Checklist

 

Virtualization

Storage virtualization provides the ability to manage multiple arrays as a single entity or create virtual arrays within a physical array to reduce administrative and physical silos in your storage infrastructure.

Comprehensive Data Availability Plan

Whether it is as simple as backing up to tape, or a multi-tiered backup solution using cloud repositories, or automating a disaster recovery plan, your data is only as good as the plan to keep it available.

Feature Utilization

Your data, in the right place, at the right time, at the right cost. Whether it is implementing automated tiering, deduplication, or archiving strategies, today’s storage technologies allow businesses to reduce costs, improve compliance, and eliminate ROTten data.

Automation

While many storage platforms have advanced automation features built in, the automation doesn’t stop there. Let software do the heavy lifting with direct integrations into server automation platforms, SAN management, and orchestration products.
