Stopping the Unstructured Data Insanity

The fact that unstructured data is growing at an uncontrollable rate should come as no surprise to IT professionals. The challenge is figuring out what to do about this growth. How can you store it all in a cost effective way? Certainly the practice of continuing to purchase additional NAS systems won’t work long term, and even scale-out storage systems can be problematic. After all, you still have to power and cool all those nodes within the scale-out storage cluster. Is there a better way?

In this ChalkTalk video, Storage Switzerland’s Lead Analyst, George Crump and Crossroad Systems‘ EVP Strategy & Business Development discuss how a Hybrid NAS that integrates production disk and tape can stop the unstructured data insanity.
