As we enter the halfway point of 2015, data reduction (deduplication, compression, thin provisioning) has emerged as the key technology driving flash adoption. Data reduction makes flash affordable and is a requirement for ODMs, OEMs and systems companies entering the all-flash array, software-defined storage and on-premise (primary) storage markets. Data efficiency is poised to have the same impact in the cloud, reducing bandwidth requirements and the cost of cloud infrastructure. In 2016, we expect to see the emergence of end-to-end technologies that coordinate data efficiency from all-flash to on-premise (primary) and the cloud to minimize the cost of data being transferred and stored anywhere.
Listen as Storage Switzerland’s lead analyst George Crump and Permabit’s CEO, Tom Cook discuss the state of deduplication today and what the future holds for data efficiency.
In This Webinar You’ll Learn:
- All data efficiency technologies are not the same
- What questions you should ask your suppliers
- How to put your organization in the best position to leverage an end-to-end data efficiency strategy
