Managing data across heterogeneous storage resources is complex, risky, and expensive. When using these resources, you have no direct access to files, because your user access is a physical gateway or software appliance. It is disruptive to transfer your information in and out. Understand the risks associated with heterogeneous storage resources to help you control your data.
The Risks of Heterogeneous Storage
Heterogeneous storage is also risky due to vendor lock-in, which makes a customer dependent on a vendor for products and services. You are then unable to use another vendor without substantial switching costs, which leads to file stubbing and file sharing. You may think your files are on disk and immediately available for use, but they are actually locked away on different file servers, software-defined storage, network attached storage, or the cloud. In order to manage your data the right way, you will need access when you need it, not when a vendor can get to it. Avoid data lock-in and the vendors who use that as a tool to control your data, and your company.
Control Your Data – Your Way
You have access via your processor, yet your data is still trapped elsewhere. Don’t let anyone else control your data, it’s time that you control your data! Utilize Data Dynamics and StorageX to have your data – your way. Complete access to your own files, and no jumping through hoops to access it. Learn more about owning your data with Data Dynamics.
