Achieving Competitiveness with Custom Storage Solutions

As enterprises rely on data more than ever to achieve greater competitiveness and faster time-to-insight, IT architects are tasked with finding ways of making data more available and data processes more agile while ensuring adequate capacity to corral the explosive growth in data volumes. Prepackaged, off-the-shelf storage solutions won’t cut it – but finding high-performing, reliable custom storage solutions at an affordable price is a challenge.

As an industry-leading manufacturer of servers and storage for more than two decades, Aberdeen delivers custom storage solutions that provide exceptional performance and unparalleled reliability at a cost that ensures outstanding value.

The Challenge of Explosive Data Growth

The exponential growth of structured and unstructured data shows no signs of slowing. The total volume of corporate data generated by the world is expected to grow from 0.36 ZB in 2010 to 175 ZB in 2025. IT teams are responsible not only for finding ways to store growing volumes of data efficiently and affordably but to make it easily available to users throughout the business who need to transform data into business insight, client engagement, market intelligence, and competitive advantage.

For highly competitive businesses, standard storage solutions can’t provide the agility required to continually keep data available, transform it as needed, and deliver it to the right people at the right time. Making data available for highly specific business purposes requires highly customized storage solutions, where technology resources are perfectly aligned with business needs. Prepackaged storage technology simply can’t deliver the flexibility to adjust to dynamic storage requirements, or to manage data recovery and other hiccups in daily processes that must be dealt with immediately to keep data protected and available.

The challenge of custom storage solutions, of course, is the cost. Because prepackaged solutions can be built with economies of scale, conventional wisdom suggests they should be less expensive than custom storage solutions. At Aberdeen, however, we’ve been turning conventional wisdom on its head for more than 20 years, delivering custom-built servers and storage products at affordable prices.
