Enterprise Storage Solutions from Aberdeen

As the volume of business data continues to double every 14 months, enterprises everywhere are challenged to manage this explosive growth while containing costs and improving performance to deliver data faster to business-critical applications. IT departments and data architects need access to a wide range of enterprise storage solutions that deliver superior performance and reliability, but at a price that helps to lower the total cost of ownership. The right enterprise storage solutions must also provide the flexibility, scalability, and customization that organizations need to solve specific data storage challenges and enable greater agility and competitiveness.

As a leading manufacturer of server and storage technology, Aberdeen provides the world’s leading companies with enterprise storage solutions that solve these data storage challenges and deliver exceptional performance, unparalleled reliability, and outstanding value.

Choosing the Right Enterprise Storage Solutions

Enterprises are virtually awash in data. Thanks to the rise of data-intensive technologies like big data, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things as well as everyday business technologies like email, digital images, e-commerce and Internet activity, the world’s collective data footprint is expected to reach 175 zettabytes by 2025.

Fortunately, manufacturers of enterprise storage solutions have responded with new technologies to handle rapidly growing data volumes. Traditional enterprise storage solutions such as network-attached storage and SAN servers are now flanked by solutions such as software-defined storage, virtualized storage, and cloud storage solutions, providing data architects with more tools to solve complex data requirements.

Yet even with all the options for enterprise storage solutions available to enterprises, finding, managing and tuning the right combination of technologies can be a challenge. Custom-built solutions can be highly effective at solving very specific storage needs, and proprietary solutions can minimize the complexity of managing storage technologies. But these solutions are traditionally more costly, and budget constraints don’t always permit IT departments to select the ideal solution. Consequently, many IT organizations take a do-it-yourself approach to managing enterprise storage solutions, only to quickly find themselves in over their heads.

Clearly, enterprise storage solutions that offer a combination of purpose-built technology with ease of management and a lower total cost of ownership are the holy grail of enterprise storage. That’s why more of the world’s leading organizations turn to Aberdeen.
