Advanced Storage Management for Today’s Unstructured Data
Increasing demands to lower costs and achieve greater business agility are top directives for today’s IT organization. Compounding the challenge is the proliferation of disparate silos of data, particularly unstructured data, which must be compliantly managed, protected and made available — over its complete lifecycle.
Unstructured data is a particular problem. In fact, IDC research indicates that unstructured content accounts for as much as 90 percent of all digital data, and much of it is locked away in a variety of diverse data stores, in different locations and in varying formats. This makes it both costly and challenging to manage, even harder to protect, and nearly impossible to search in response to compliance events.
To minimize the complexity and difficulty of managing unstructured data, the infrastructure needs to be:
- Agile – with flexible portability that can migrate data seamlessly between separate silos – on-premises or in the cloud – to help avoid vendor lock in while supporting continuity and scalability
- Optimized – so that data growth isn’t costly or unmanageable and supports overall operational efficiencies
- Compliant – with granular policy-based management and simplified discovery features that assure both compliance and security
- Insightful – offering the detailed visibility, analysis and reporting organizations need to make informed decisions
Data Dynamics is here to solve the unstructured data problem. By empowering the intelligent management of unstructured data, our products meet these critical data infrastructure requirements. They drive operational efficiencies, cut migration time and cost in half and help to mitigate security breaches. As a result, organizations can better manage, migrate and protect their large data assets across the entire information lifecycle.
