Storage Solutions for Data Dilemmas
"Size matters not" - Yoda
Digital data has become the life blood of organizations of all sizes. Whether your company is a small start-up that will be outgrowing its shoes within a few years, or a large enterprise in need of innovative and complex architecting, the keys for survival will be successfully navigating the two tectonic shifts of IT and digital transformation. Higher resolution video, image, and machine generated sensor data from the internet is generating huge Data Lakes. This deluge of data has made it extremely difficult to scale, manage, protect, secure, and mine data into valuable business insights.
Organizations are now taking a three-phased approach to the business data storage dilemma: Modernizing the IT infrastructure, Automating processes, and Transforming business with new applications. A key component of modernizing IT has been the Dell Compellent SC4020All-Flash-Array. It is a proven leader in not only price/performance, but also in data storage efficiency and ease-of-use through policy-driven automated tiering between high-performance and high-capacity flash SSD drives.
Hyper-convergence in another key weapon of choice in the battle to achieve savings in traditional IT data centers. Applied to next generation and cloud-native Platform 3 applications, hyper-converged storage solutions can help businesses transform and remain competitive. The DellEMC VxRack is a Hyper-converged, rack scale system built on Dell servers with integrated compute, storage, networking and choice of hypervisors (VMware, Microsoft, Red Hat, Nutanix). With this software-defined approach, you can start small and deliver both flexible and massive scalability when needed.
