File Storage

The answer to modern data needs?
A high-performance scale-out file system

Businesses are creating, analyzing and keeping more data than ever before. The reason is simple: those who can deliver faster insights from data will be the leaders in their industry. So, what’s the problem then?

Within an organization, as well as in the cloud, separate islands of data are being created. This continuously escalates complexity and makes it difficult to manage systems. It also increases costs. As data need to be shared quickly between multiple applications, across the company, problems occur.

Unfortunately, today’s data access requirements cannot be met by traditional scale-up storage systems that can’t scale beyond a few systems. The good news? There is a smarter way to prepare for growing data needs in AI, big data and analytic applications and workloads – without wasting existing storage investments.


Positioning yourself for a data-fueled growth

With a scale-out high-performance global parallel file system, you can say goodbye to data islands. It ensures high data availability across the organization, enabling you to easily share data between multiple applications and to reuse the data for different business needs. Without any limitations.
Other than that, the solution helps you:

  •  Streamline cloud and on-premise storage management
  • Store massive amounts of data and scale up as you go
  • Meet the data, AI, ML and analytics needs
  • Optimize storage economics
  • Keep your choice of industry-standard hardware
