How Scale-Out Infrastructure Solves Secondary Storage Headaches
Title: How Scale-Out Infrastructure Solves Secondary Storage Headaches
Duration: 30 min.
Many IT departments don’t realize that more than 70 percent of their data lives in secondary storage. But they have firsthand knowledge of the headaches associated with the scale-up approach to dealing with storage growth; the need to swap in even larger systems as data swells.
The alternative is a scale-out architecture that enables you to simply expand capacity as you need it. Besides solving the scalability problem, this approach is less expensive, more reliable and delivers predictable performance cost.
Gartner says 30 percent of data has already moved to scale-out infrastructure, mostly for primary storage. That success is now driving interest in applying the same principals to secondary storage.
In this webinar we will examine how scale-out infrastructure:
- Simplifies storage management
- Lowers infrastructure costs
- Improves reliability and availability
- Addresses performance
- Seamless storage expansion
