If you’re running your business applications on a legacy storage architecture with spinning disks, you may be experiencing new challenges. Is your IT staff continually tuning performance because of new applications with different performance demands? Are you finding it difficult to protect company data from internal and external threats? Do you need to tie your on-premises infrastructure to a public cloud? Are your current storage systems approaching end of warranty? Are the future plans of your current storage vendor uncertain? If any of these is true, here are five reasons to consider switching from hard drives to all-flash storage. These are some of the reasons why NetApp introduced the AFF C190 storage system—all-flash storage at the price of disk.
TechnologyOne is Australia’s largest enterprise software company. The company had two world-class data centres in Brisbane but after a three-day outage caused by the 2011 floods, it moved away from having its own data centres, opting instead to buy Infrastructure-as-a-Service from Amazon Web Services (AWS). After four years of developing innovative cloud services, TechnologyOne saw that cloud storage was becoming a critical issue for its customers. So it called in NetApp to help it find the most cost-efficient, scalable and agile data management solution.
Data protection has always been a challenge for organizations. Most data loss is caused by user error such as accidental deletion or by malicious attack. Increased growth in an organization’s data makes it harder to meet backup SLAs, which increases pressure to move user data to a fast and cost-effective backup solution.
There is a fundamental change underway in how we run IT—a shift in infrastructure deployments to allow for faster response time, greater scale, manageability, simplicity, and an overall better service and support experience. It’s not done in a vacuum—it’s for a good reason: to accelerate business processes.
Many businesses recognise that of all the organisations within an enterprise, IT is the one that can invariably make the most difference when leveraged optimally and strategically. Speeding access to applications and information can help businesses quickly take advantage of new opportunities, accelerate time to market for products and services, and increase workforce productivity.
