Hyper-converged platforms grow to include secondary storage space
If you view hyper-converged platforms as an evolutionary stream within the overall IT space, one next logical step is to extend hyper-convergence to also include secondary storage.
However, secondary storage is facing widespread issues, including:
- Siloed use cases such as data protection and DevOps that required separate point products.
- Huge amounts of little-used, poorly understood and rapidly growing dark data.
- Copy data proliferation that wasted storage space and added to the dark data problem.
Read on to discover how you can address some of these problems and learn how vendors are promising to make life easier for storage administrators by producing products that leverage existing technologies developed for the original hyper-converged platforms.
