Solving Network Storage Issues with Aberdeen

Data centers everywhere are facing a critical challenge: they’re running out of rack space and have little to no room for physical expansion. The explosive growth of corporate data has been filling up data centers nearly as fast as IT architects have been able to add capacity. IT teams must find new solutions to manage this tsunami of information, but IT budgets are not rising nearly as rapidly (if they’re rising at all) to keep pace with the need for more storage.

Aberdeen can help – with network storage solutions that maximize density and minimize cost while ] delivering exceptional performance and unparalleled reliability.

Managing Growing Data Stores

Data is bigger than ever, both in the amount of storage space it consumes and the role it plays in every aspect of the business. Businesses today need fast access to data to inform decision-making, satisfy customers, optimize operations, minimize risk, increase profitability and continually identify and take advantage of new opportunities. With vast volumes of new data generated by technologies like the Internet of Things, Internet search, streaming video, and social media, organizations are poised to wield data to their advantage in new and novel ways.

But before they can provide fast and reliable access to data, IT teams must solve several critical data challenges. The first: how to add more storage to data centers that are nearing the limits of their capacity. This challenge is complicated by the fact that organizations must not only deal with more files but with ever-larger data files, and they must retain them longer to comply with regulation and with legal best practices. A second challenge is ensuring the kind of performance that allows data to flow quickly and reliably throughout the organization. And the third challenge: meeting the first two challenges with IT budgets that remain fairly flat from year-to-year.

Solving these challenges requires a new breed of network storage servers that enable organizations to store more data in less space and for less cost while delivering the highest levels of performance and reliability.
