6 storage pros reveal how scale-out NAS promotes machine data flexibility

The storage systems of yesterday were built to handle human-created data. In today’s world of machine data however, these environments are easily bogged down by the huge volumes of information pouring in. Few standard storage systems can handle the volume of raw data and intensive processing needs.
In this Taneja Group field report, learn how scale-out NAS can help you get a grip on your machine data—both raw and processed—with 5 critical, high-performing capabilities. Read on to see how 6 customers in a variety of industries used their NAS system to store, manage, and curate mission-critical data.

  • Managing machine data storage in a transaction-oriented world

    There are 2.5 quintillion bytes of data being created every day, most of it produced automatically without any human interaction. This shift in scale and method of data creation necessitates a shift in storage strategies, as well.
    Are you ready to face this challenge?
    Use this resource to learn about the major points of data creation in today’s world, how 2 companies in the healthcare and automotive fields have already begun to adjust their storage to accommodate machine data, how to prepare for expanding IoT data capacity, and more.

  • Quiet down "noisy neighbor" applications with storage QoS

    The two magic words in modern IT are “speed” and “simplicity”. In other words, businesses today need to consolidate their applications into one sleek interface that’s easily accessible. While it sounds like a dream come true, it can create major storage headaches.

    In this guide, learn why storage systems with native quality of service (QoS) capabilities are key to transitioning your storage from a siloed IT environment to a single, high-performance infrastructure. Inside, discover:

    • Where “QoS” comes from
    • What “noisy neighbor” applications are and how they can create storage bottlenecks
    • 6 requirements for true QoS
    • And more
