Traditional scale-up architectures for secondary storage use a plethora of expensive, single purpose servers, storage and gateways for duties that range from media control to supporting services such as data protection, storage management, deduplication and encryption.
These complex environments are hard to manage - costly and limit options and agility - which has given rise to new scale-out alternatives. But some of the new tools come with hardware limitations. What you need is an approach that uses standard servers and a common layer of software that can easily adapt to your changing needs. In this webinar we’ll examine what to look for in a scale-out architecture for secondary storage that can:
Improve operational efficiencies
Provide proactive monitoring and central policy management
Reduce storage cost and drive greater utilization
Improve data resiliency and availability
