Eighty percent or more of all stored data is written once and never accessed again. Inactive data in the typical data center doubles every twenty four months or less. A recent study found that ninety-percent of all data that exists in the world today has been created in the last two years. During 2016 alone, approximately $24 billion will be spent on new file storage for data that will remain inactive forever.
Infinite io has built a game-changing new solution to automatically control and manage the massive growth of inactive data that consumes the majority of most IT storage budgets while dramatically increasing the access performance of data that is actively used.
With the advent of gigabit internet connections, flash memory and cloud storage, accessing and storing data will forever be changed. Say goodbye to traditional stand-alone storage systems. Solutions that have not been built from the ground up to take advantage of this tidal change in technology will require complete vendor lock-in and/or changes to network addressing, file access points and applications just to incorporate the cloud. infinite io natively incorporates the cloud into existing applications and storage transparently - no changes required.
Infinite io installs transparently in front of storage as a network-based controller and intelligently migrates inactive data to low-cost cloud storage. Data is constantly migrated to the cloud based on intelligent policies. Not all data is created equal, so placement on low-cost storage is done with much more intelligence than just last access date. With infinite io you decide what’s important for a change, not your storage vendor.
Install us in a passive mode and we’ll use industry standard storage costs and information we collect from your environment to calculate expected savings. We also discover and display data activity, allowing you to pinpoint the inactive and active data sets. When ready, turn on active mode and we’ll even make active storage faster by serving it out of flash memory from a reduced local file storage footprint. Reclaim your IT storage budget and get the best of both worlds for a change – capacity and performance.
