Data Dynamics empowers enterprises to seamlessly analyse, move, manage and modernize their critical data assets—from creation to archival—while maximizing the value of their current and future infrastructure investments, on-premises and in the cloud.
That’s a strong claim and we back it up everyday. Our award-winning StorageX software platform enables businesses to unlock their data, so that they can quickly adapt to changing business requirements. Today, StorageX is trusted by 24 of the top Fortune 100 companies and customer proven with more than 160 PB of storage optimized. The result? StorageX has saved more than 80 years in project time and
$80 million in total storage costs.
The intelligent cloud file management platform enables organizations to visualize their data across the enterprise while allowing for the transparent movement of files to the appropriate storage tier. Featuring a powerful Universal Data Engine that performs completely out-of- band, StorageX automates file management, so that organizations can unleash the power of their data cloud.
Analyze Data, in a Single View
StorageX helps organizations gather valuable insight about their data that is held captive across proprietary storage silos. Using intelligent query methods and access to file metadata information, the intelligent cloud file management platform provides the actionable information enterprises need to enable storage tiering, storage optimization, storage movement, storage protection, archiving and more. As
a result, enterprises always know what data they have and where it lives.
Move Data Across Storage Resources with Simplicity
As infrastructure complexity grows, the challenge of moving data across heterogenous storage resources is difficult, risky and expensive. StorageX manages all file management needs in a single solution, using policy-based automation to reduce the risk and cost. Furthering governance and security practices, it supports policies based on existing file metadata information (type, size, last, access, and
owner) and custom metadata information (tags) that can be added as desired. Supporting migration policy operations across all storage types (NAS, File Servers, SDS, and Object) using industry standards (NFS, SMB/CIFS, S3), StorageX provides cloud file management with simplicity.
Manage Data with Advanced Intelligence
With the proliferation of cloud-based infrastructure, file migration and management has become a strategic process that impacts the agility and responsiveness of all enterprise business units and departments. StorageX serves as a central command center for this increasingly critical operation, enabling organizations to view and manage data from live to archive. Using a standards-based approach, the powerful
platform removes the barriers that exist across heterogeneous storage types for the ability to move and adapt to changing business demands more quickly. Deep file metadata information provides layers of intelligence to make decisions faster and act more quickly so that enterprises can rationalize data placement with their business needs.
Modernize to Adapt to a Changing Cloud Landscape
Today’s digital transformation goals require a more responsive, nimble infrastructure with the freedom to choose new directions without vendor lock-in. IT is no longer the sole owner of your data. StorageX empowers the entire enterprise from line of business and application owners to tap the value of their data for competitive advantage. Using open standards and powerful automation and operating out-of- band, it enables enterprises to direct when and where they need their data to be. This means a more dynamic, empowered enterprise that can react faster to the changing demands of the business.
The Data Dynamics team are experts in enterprise data center storage environments, passionate about the StorageX product, and honored by the loyalty StorageX customers have shown to the product over its lifetime. At Data Dynamics, we are excited to be building the next generation of industry-leading intelligent data management solutions.
Dynamic data management is at the core of our DNA and the cornerstone of everything we build. Let us show you how StorageX can free your data held captive behind multiple storage silos. It’s time to break down the barriers and give you back your data and empower your enterprise to seamlessly analyze, move, manage and modernize your critical data assets across hybrid, cloud and object-based storage
infrastructures for true business transformation.
