EMC is approaching the emerging revolution in storage technology development with a portfolio of advanced tools and solutions. These storage solutions are engineered to adopt and grow with the next-generation of big and unstructured data generated from diversified industries.
As data begins to inundate the marketplace, file types and sizes are becoming more extreme, mutative and mountainous than ever before. IT departments are tasked with managing constant streams of data from the cloud, social platforms, mobile devices and the web, as well as other sources never before realized by traditional BI and on-premise content management infrastructures. Software-defined storage (SDS) represents the leading edge of storage solutions, and EMC is positioned at the helm.
EMC’s depth of industry expertise and emerging tech software development experience have informed the creation of a suite of solutions that can be tailored to meet the needs of organizations transitioning to SDS, those working to incorporate SDS technology into their existing storage infrastructure, or those looking to redefine how they use, gather, maintain and manage the constant influx of data on which their businesses depend.
What sets EMC apart is a grander vision for SDS as a driving concept that should span how storage will be delivered now and in the future. EMC is embracing, redefining and disrupting the industry standards to deliver vendor neutral, open-standard APIs that allow products to be used as a standalone platform or part of a full cloud deployment, like OpenStack. Open source community editions increase flexibility and reduce risk.
EMC software-defined storage products improve and provide new means of organization and delivery models for file, block, object, HDFS and hyper-converged storage, as well as next-gen rack scale, data center and hyper scale-out storage. These products include IsilonSD Edge (scale-out file storage), ScaleIO (scale-out block storage) and ECS (cloud-scale object storage). The flexibility of EMC SDS solutions makes them available as appliances or free and frictionless downloadable software that can be installed on industry-standard hardware.
The sophisticated nature of EMC’s broad selection of SDS solutions allows easy integration into existing content management schemes without massive hardware replacement investments, new staff integration or performance downtime. SDS allows complete control over protocols, access, interface and data management within the systems, removing extraneous nodes, access points and machinery from the content management experience. This achieves more streamlined IT processes with reduced hardware, software, training and staffing costs and the ability to grow and adapt as the advancements in data collection and formatting continue.
The portfolio of SDS solutions developed by EMC allows organizations to not only better collect, protect and store next-gen data types and proportions, but to provide the possibility of streamlined growth as technology transforms, providing multi-generational, cost-effective options for the future of IT sectors everywhere.
