Organizations have tried a variety of solutions to regain control of their data storage infrastructure. They’ve invested in monolithic storage systems, software defined storage (SDS) and hyper-converged systems. While each approach may have brought some value, each failed in its primary task: consolidating storage resources. Each of these consolidation efforts is unable to consistently guarantee performance, scale capacity and drive down storage costs.
As a result, most organizations end up buying workload specific solutions for both legacy and modern applications. Most data centers today have a mixture of multiple all-flash storage systems, hyper-converged environments and high capacity data archives. They also have storage software for each use case. IT ends up dealing with a data management nightmare, which limits organizational efficiency and productivity.
Don’t give up! Join Storage Switzerland and Datera for our webinar “Overcoming the Storage Roadblock to Data Center Modernization.” Join us live to learn how monolithic, software defined and hyper-converged architectures have let IT down and why the problem gets worse as data centers modernize. Attendees will learn how storage solutions need to change in order to eliminate primary storage silos while guaranteeing specific application performance, scaling to meet capacity demands and lower storage TCO.
Join us live on Thursday, September 27th at 1:00pm ET / 10:00am PT. Register today and get an advanced copy of Storage Switzerland’s latest white paper “Designing Storage Architectures for Modern Data Centers.”
The white paper will discuss why organizations need to adopt an on-premises architecture that resembles the architectures that cloud providers use to host production workloads, similar to Amazon’s Elastic Block Storage. The on-premises storage architecture needs to use multi-tenancy to guarantee performance and scale-out design to meet capacity requirements. To keep costs down the storage architecture also has to be software defined, running on commodity hardware and it has to be multi-tiered to leverage multiple types of flash and hard disk drives.
The modern storage architecture needs to be primarily an on-premises solution. On-premises is a critical requirement since data has “gravity”, it can’t be created and deleted instantly like compute. Its permanence means that renting storage in the cloud isn’t economically feasible.
The white paper is exclusively available to pre-registrants of the webinar, so register today and we will send an advanced copy of the paper as soon as it is available. Then come back and join us for the live event to learn more and discuss the paper.
