Data protection capabilities need to keep pace with data growth
Enterprise data is growing at an unprecedented rate, greater than 50% by some estimates.
Faced with increasing business and regulatory demand for continuous access to and availability of critical data, enterprises seek a comprehensive, scalable data protection and business continuity solution that keeps up with the rapid pace of data growth.
Scale, simplicity and cost matter for backup storage
Data protection is increasingly being implemented in the application layer as a dedicated appliance or in software.
Modern backup systems offer a rich, flexible set of capabilities that allow administrators to tame the problem of data protection and archival in an environment of unchecked data growth.
By using a variety of techniques such as deduplication, compression and data tiering, these solutions are able to utilize the underlying storage and network resources intelligently.
Software-based data protection solutions require storage that is fast, simple and scalable.
With most of the backup and recovery intelligence handled at the software layer, the hardware infrastructure requires simple scale-out storage with great price-performance characteristics that will allow companies to easily grow their storage capacity in line with data growth.
The outpace.IO family of products offers flexible, scale-out storage that delivers better performance than Fibre Channel SANs with commodity hardware economics.
A Series storage solutions have true scale-out capabilities and provide an attractive alternative to controller-based storage architectures, growing to multiple petabytes without expensive forklift upgrades.
The flexibility and versatility of outpace.IO single-tier technology allows it to be used as primary storage, disk-based backup storage and off-site disaster recovery storage.
For data protection systems that enable IT systems to be run off backup storage in the event of a failure, outpace.IO A Series offers a cost-effective backup storage target that delivers the required performance.
outpace.IO has been deployed successfully behind many of the leading software-based backup solutions in market.
outpace.IO A Series is easy to set up and appears as locally attached disk to the host.
To scale capacity dynamically, simply add more outpace.IO A Series shelves as needed.
