It’s not just data, it’s your business
A large portion of your data is unstructured data and that dataset is growing exponentially – not just in the datacenter but at the enterprise edge and in the cloud. PowerScale OneFS powered scale-out storage solutions are designed for organizations that want to manage all their data, not their storage. Our storage systems are powerful yet simple to install, manage and scale to virtually any size. The storage includes a choice of PowerScale and Isilon all-flash, hybrid or archive nodes to meet the most demanding business needs. And, unlike traditional enterprise storage, these solutions stay simple no matter how much storage capacity is added, how much performance is required or how business needs change in the future.
In a world where unstructured data is growing rapidly and taking over the data center, organizations are looking for ways to get more out of their data. Whether it is driving innovation, getting to market faster or creating differentiation, they want the data to start creating value. Instead of thinking of destinations for your data, you think about what the data is going to be used for, who will be using it and how the data will help you solve for their business needs. When you have a data first mindset, the goal is to get any data to where it needs to be for business needs. Whether it is all-flash Edge offerings or the cloud to take advantage of the tools and access, data must be located where it needs to be for the business
With OneFS powered clusters consisting of PowerScale or Isilon nodes, you can eliminate storage silos, consolidate all your unstructured data, store petabytes of file data and analyze them in a data first world. With up to 252 nodes in a cluster, you can scale both capacity and performance in a few minutes to meet your specific business needs—all without any additional IT burden. With the performance of all-flash node that are configured with NVMe, you can drive demanding workloads like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning.
