Your storage system is where all your information sits for your data center environment. Your users and applications constantly feed data in – and retrieve data from – your storage system. Rising data and user volumes can consume your storage capacity quickly, slow I/O performance, and escalate storage and management costs.
Custom addresses your critical storage challenges – including scalability and capacity issues – with innovative physical, cloud, and virtualized storage technology solutions. Our storage solutions are designed to grow with your business and data, offer flexible virtualization, and ensure business continuity with simplified and cost-effective backup and recovery options.
Flexible, Scalable, Recoverable
A foundational component of your data center storage comes with some inherent challenges. Some of the most common are rapid data growth, inefficient utilization of data, and wasted storage capacity with up to 80% of inactive data. High data volume makes it difficult to find data quickly. Replication of data for backups is costly and unreliable. Data recovery is difficult and slow. Server or storage equipment upgrades require time-consuming data migration. Limited space in storage racks – and in your physical data center – restricts growth.
Custom storage solutions begin with agile hardware architecture and single platform scalability that immediately enable you to store more on less. Automated processes enable you to manage more with less – performing data migration and moving data by policy across storage tiers or to the cloud, deduping and compressing data, archiving inactive data, and indexing data for faster searches.
