How can I store perpetually growing volumes of data?
Data growth was once modest, files were small, and keeping primary data on NAS did not tax staff or budgets. But realities have changed. Networks now support most business operations, swelling data creation, and files are content-rich and much larger. Regulatory and business practices not only demand that enterprises retain key data for longer time periods, but also require that the files be readily accessible. Moreover, with network data business critical, SLAs necessitate faster recovery time objectives (RTOs).
In this new reality, traditional NAS, nearline, and tape strategies have become expensive and complex. Continually expanding a data center or DR site imposes heavy capital costs, greater power, cooling, and space demands, as well as larger IT staffs. Deduplication and compression techniques help only temporarily to slow data growth. Even if infinite money, floor space, and operations staff were available, building out bullet-proof storage to satisfy business, regulatory, and SLA demands is challenging.
With all this in mind, we created the Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network to meet your present and future storage needs. Using the Nirvanix cloud, you can consolidate lower tiers of storage and tape into one accessible archive, eliminating the complexity and expense of designing, configuring, and operating tiered storage. You will gain virtually infinite storage capacity with security measures likely to exceed those of your network, freeing you to focus on production data. You will enhance operational efficiencies and sharply reduce hardware, space, energy, and staffing costs.
