Time to think differently about Unstructured Data
The explosion of unstructured data is demanding new approaches and a new capability for organisations to unlock their data by breaking down silos, allowing consolidation and enabling digital transformation. At the same time, many enterprises are looking to accelerate transformation with powerful next-gen applications such as data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning. But what does this mean for how and where data is stored?
Mark Treweeke, Head of Datacentre and Infrastructure Pre-Sales, at Trustmarque, commented: “These workloads often require the extreme performance of flash storage whilst at the same time, many organisations are under pressure with limited and decreasing budgets and operating expenses. They need to manage the growing volumes of unstructured data effectively so that their businesses can be more productive and enable the true value of their data.
“That’s why increasing numbers of organisations are now looking to adopt a hybrid approach. By combining scale-out, file and object or cloud storage, you get a strong balance between performance and cost of ownership.”
