Managing large volumes of data

Smart and optimized storage for your large data volumes

According to IDC studies “Digital universe” published in December 2012, the world has created or reproduced around 2.8 zettabytes (1021 bytes) of data, and we forecast around 40 zettabytes over a five-year horizon (equivalent to 47,200 billions of billions of bytes).

Those data are the raw material of IT: we must stock, classify and index them in order to retrieve, manipulate and analyze their content to extract the meaning, while processing performance issues induced by their large volumes.

In the 2000s, the sharp fall of disks prices made data storage as a secondary challenge. Currently, the fast growth of large data volumes has made storage management once again a major concern for large datacenters.

Managing large volumes of data requires finding a compromise between various parameters:

  • Capacity storage to preserve the information mass
  • Velocity to adapt the I/O speed of media to the applications
  • Electricity consumption, since energy supply is a major constraint on large sites
  • Media reliability
  • Costs, etc.

Benefits

  • Manages up to hundreds of Petabytes of data in a single filesystem with a unique address space

  • Adapts storage policies to business needs

  • Optimizes storage costs by using the right media for the right data

  • Automates security processes to avoid any risk of data loss

  • Independence from the material infrastructure by carrying out a total virtualization of the filesystem

  • Increases your capacity without limit as needed

Features

  • Virtual filesystem adressing a combination of heterogeneous media, from the SSD disk to magnetic tape

  • Supports all type of storage technology, without restriction
  • Manages complex storage policies (service & security classes) based on your business rules

  • Cluster based architecture that allows you to extend storage capacity and performance by adding nodes

  • Supports various access interfaces allowing virtual file system manipulation: FTP, FUSE, NFS, CLI and API REST connectors

What you can do

- Manage your data without restriction
- Offer a high level of performance and data availability to your users
