Do You Control Your Data?

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.

Object Storage Popularity

Why is Object Storage Growing in Popularity?

Object Storage is the buzz of the storage industry and for good reason: it encompasses file, block, and object access portals into the same pool of raw object storage.

Compared to traditional file and block storage, object storage offers massive petabyte scalability and built-in availability. It’s a distributed design model that removed the potential of a single drive failure. Object storage nodes are combined to enable unlimited capacity and consistent access performance.

At Data Dynamics, we are very excited about the potential for object storage. In the recent release of StorageX 8.0, we unveiled new file-to-object conversion to support S3-compliance object storage. Based on feedback from our customers, file-to-object conversion was the number one requested new feature.

StorageX is the file management solution of choice for 6 of the 12 largest banks in the world.  Large banks that actively manage petabytes of data rely on object storage for its massive scalability, availability and economies of scale.  One of our customers, whose name we cannot reveal, was kind enough to share how they recently completed a 10 PB filesystem refresh using StorageX.

When measured across all our customers, the benefits delivered by StorageX are truly incredible:

  • Reduce storage-related operational costs 50%
  • Deploy new storage technology 66% faster
  • Modernize applications for 10X productivity improvement

Data Dynamics is proud to work with all its technology partners who share our passion for object storage.  We are witnessing a MAJOR shift in the storage industry and we are excited about the future potential of object storage.
