How to lower Storage TCO through Object Storage

Networked Attached Storage is broken. Business data is increasing at an alarming pace but traditional “scale-up” NAS architectures can’t scale to meet this demand. As a result, organizations are often forced into time consuming and expensive fork-lift upgrades. To learn more about how you can drive down your total cost of storage ownership, join us for a webinar on October 2nd at 1pm EST, 10am PST entitled: “The 7 Key Reasons Why Object Storage Lowers TCO”.

Scaled-Out Expenses

Scale-out NAS architectures are a step in the right direction, however these “next generation” storage platforms typically require businesses to pay for CPU and storage capacity with each node that is deployed. This doesn’t give IT organizations the flexibility to granularly deploy CPU and storage resources as they are needed. In other words, if the storage infrastructure is running out of disk capacity but CPU processing is underutilized, storage managers should be able to just add nodes that have disk. Likewise, if there is a need just for more CPU horsepower, then only CPU resources should be deployed. In short, scale-out NAS systems are just as prone to the resource sprawl and asset under-utilization issues that drive up the total cost of ownership in traditional NAS and SAN environments.

Backup Cost Avoidance

In this webinar we’ll discuss how backup costs can also be eliminated through the deployment of an object storage environment. And this is no small consideration given the fact that many industry sources estimate that up to 80-90% of all data created today is unstructured data (user files, PDF’s, rich multimedia, etc.).

Object storage is ideally suited for storing and protecting unstructured data simply because of its ability to scale from TBs to PBs utilizing commodity infrastructure. What’s more, since it is vastly more efficient than RAID, businesses can cost-effectively create redundant copies of their data and disperse it across multiple racks in the data center, across multiple data center locations globally or out into public clouds like Amazon.

Sync & Share & Save

This affords businesses the ultimate flexibility to share out data to their users, business partners and customers, regardless of their physical office locations, while also ensuring the continual protection of their business data assets. And by offloading unstructured data from their backup environments, businesses can put off backup infrastructure upgrades and reduce their operational overhead to realize significant ongoing savings.

By pre-registering for the webinar today, you will also gain exclusive access to the Storage Switzerland white paper “Reducing Storage TCO With Private Cloud Storage” emailed after you sign up. No Waiting! Read it before the webinar and have your questions about the paper ready when we start.

In addition, all registrants will be able to access Storage Switzerland’s extensive library of on-demand webinars, many with exclusive white papers, without having to re-register.

As is always the case with a Storage Switzerland webinar, we will leave plenty of time for questions and answers. Get your specific questions answered or just listen in to hear what your IT peers are struggling with and the solutions we recommend.

The live event will be held on Thursday, October 2nd at 1PM Eastern, 10AM Pacific, so sign up now and get your exclusive white paper emailed to you today!

Can’t attend? No worries, register anyway, we’ll still send you the lab report right away. No waiting. When the webinar is complete, we will send you the deck and a link to the on-demand webinar when it becomes available.
