The Problem with Storage Silos

Regardless of which storage you may be using for your business—SAN, DAS, or NAS—you are going to face issues, especially in sharing resources across different storage silos. And with compound annual growth rates (CAGR), data storage continues to grow rapidly and exponentially. Ultimately, while there are solutions or workarounds to alleviate the stress of runaway storage silos, most don't get to the root of the problem.

Solving Storage Silo Problems

Eliminating the storage silo problem necessitates a fundamental shift in approach. Rather than looking at storage as individual containers, storage should be pooled based on performance, capacity, locality, resilience, durability, immutability, accessibility and value. You can achieve this through scale-out object storage systems.

In the Ending Storage Silos Whitepaper, you will learn more about:

  • Why conventional wisdom in storage solutions isn’t enough anymore
  • How to unify all your storage silos into a single, common storage pool in 4 steps
  • The benefits of next-gen storage unification

"The benefits of next generation unified storage are enormous. It delivers one storage pool, commodity hardware, complete performance range, infinite scale, simpler data protection, easier management, greater data durability/resilience and a much lower cost."
