Scalability and data management have become more essential than ever for companies who want to meet business demands and stay ahead of the curve. While increasing data being generated by an estimated 1 trillion sensors across networked resources provide a wealth of opportunities for enterprises to discover new insights, they also come with unprecedented challenges. As a result, businesses are seeking ways to do more with less.
This doesn’t mean that they should simply use less hardware, but rather that they will be best positioned when their technical environments are intentionally designed to support their specific workflow. Because data is being created at such a rapid pace, enterprises need to be very strategic when designing their environment.
To understand the intent and strategy of your enterprise storage environment, we asked a number of storage industry experts to weigh in on the following question:
“What is the one thing enterprises should do in order to prepare for the next wave of data?”
Based on what we heard from the experts above, a storage strategy is no longer a technical challenge but a tactical one. More important than meeting certain capacity or performance requirements is aligning your storage to a holistic technical strategy. This means having a storage solution that is future proofed for rapid innovations in hardware, software and cloud capabilities and can support new methods of data analysis. Taking a software-focused approach to storage is one thing enterprises can do to prepare for the next wave of data. By doing so, you can make your storage is invisible and your data becomes visible at scale.
