Modern data storage

The demands and expectations for storage performance are expanding. Many companies are adopting cloud and flash technologies to enhance their storage infrastructure. Nearly all organizations are at a turning point. Whether establishing new strategy or new architectures, we help clients implement scalable, optimized, and agile technology that can perform and set the stage for innovation.

We know the landscape

Cloud + Data Center Transformation (CDCT) has been in the storage industry for more than 25 years, evolving as the technology has advanced. We know storage. And we have invested significant resources into understanding flash, cloud, converged infrastructure, software-defined, and the storage landscape as a whole. 

Data is accumulating at an impressive rate. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) solutions help businesses capitalize on their data and its inherent intelligence. So, data storage today is not only a challenge in that it should be cost-effective, fast, reliable, and secure — the right storage solution often has to offer automation, scalability, and integrity upon which to build apps, DevOps, and other software-based business tool sets.

What Will You Do With All That Data?

In an environment with exponential data growth and increased cloud adoption, organizations face many considerations as they decide where and how to store their data. This ebook provides an in-depth look at modern data storage strategies.

Storage as a Service (STaaS)

IT decisions have an undeniable impact on the amount and kinds of risk a business assumes. Business growth and operational change can also create vulnerabilities associated with the use of data and information. 

Organizations in highly regulated industries, those with complex legacy IT environments, those needing to rein in capital expenses, and many more, appreciate the kind of elasticity that the public cloud can offer but may not otherwise be able to embrace that platform choice for data storage needs.

Insight’s STaaS offerings enable businesses to reduce risk and hefty upfront costs through pay-as-you-go consumption for on-premises storage solutions from leading OEMs including NetApp, Pure Storage, and Cisco. Gain the agility of consumption-based pricing on-premises, as well as the flexibility to run workloads in the public cloud when and as needed.

Cloud storage

Attributes such as high availability and simpler provisioning have led many to include cloud storage in their infrastructure already, with many more organizations planning on adding it in the near future. However, careful attention must be given to the actual cost and other benefits, particularly as capacity requirements increase. Compliance, security, and privacy requirements also need special consideration. 

We can help define or rearchitect storage solutions that include cloud and deliver clear benefits:

  • Better manageability and efficiency
  • Quicker time to market
  • Faster backup and recovery
  • Flex capacity and scalability
  • Environments optimized for security

Flash is fast

With the right approach, architecture, and deployment, flash storage can provide competitive advantages and reduce the capital and operational costs of IT, helping to simplify storage operations. Flash is fast — there’s no question about it. But the use of flash is not just about speed. It's also about managing, supporting, and optimizing certain workloads to reliably process increased amounts of data. Flash allows for much faster data transfer rates as compared to traditional spinning disk storage, accelerating mission-critical applications for virtual data centers. 

Cloud-connected flash takes data storage to a whole new level. Designed to economically migrate data based on policy, this technology is highly efficient and flexible. Using solutions from vendors like NetApp and Hitachi, we can help you maximize your architecture — with any combination of cloud and on-premises components — as well as optimize costs, increase automation, and gain valuable analytic insight.

GPU technology

From scientific discoveries to artificial intelligence, the solutions that help us address the world’s most pressing challenges are built in modern data centers. Accelerated computing platforms like a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) give modern data centers the capability for deep learning, machine learning, and high-performance computing workloads.
