Data access. Data virtualization. Data consolidation. Data security. Data analytics.
What do all of these things have in common? Ok, yes, they all have something to do with data, but that’s obvious. What’s not so obvious is that all of these data-centric tasks rely on storage solutions to facilitate them.
Data has to be stored somewhere. That’s the way most people think of storage solutions–as a way to house data. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Storage can do so much more to help you tackle your data. For instance:
Want to monitor cybersecurity threats in real-time? You’ll need a storage solution powerful enough to access massive data sets in seconds, and pinpoint inconsistencies in user processes.
Want to see your data in new ways? A storage solution with enough capacity to support virtualization solutions is essential.
Want to cut your IT costs? Find a storage solution that compresses and de-duplicates your data, thereby minimizing the amount of disk or flash space that you’ll need to purchase.
Want to increase involvement in data initiatives? Deploy a storage solution that is easy to use, so that non-IT personnel can help get the most out of your data.
