Software-Defined Storage — Enabling the Next-Generation Enterprise IT Infrastructure

Enterprise IT infrastructure is constantly changing and businesses have to adapt quickly to stay competitive. Software-defined storage (SDS) allows IT organizations to mix and match multigenerational hardware platforms and workloads as well as decouple hardware and software refresh cycles for increased return on investment (ROI) of storage infrastructure – but can SDS effectively protect data?

This white paper highlights a software-defined storage platform that provides end-to-end solutions that fully meet performance, availability, support, and scalability needs. Read on to learn how SDS can help you to better manage and protect your growing amounts of data.

  • CIO Strategies for Storage: Modernize Data Protection Practices

    Ensuring constant data availability and protection is more important now than ever before, but the one-size-fits-all approach of traditional backup can’t keep pace with the growing volume of data.

    Instead of completely revamping your storage, consider augmenting your legacy infrastructure with modern data protection approaches to avoid application availability issues, sluggish performance, and unreliable data recovery.

    Check out this white paper to learn effective ways you can modernize your data protection strategy by combining traditional backup with advanced continuity and resiliency solutions. Read on to learn how you can:

    • Minimize data loss
    • Maximize resource efficiency
    • Deliver faster, non-disruptive backups
    • And more!
