IT teams are constantly struggling to manage data volumes that are doubling nearly every two years. Traditional storage infrastructure is simply not built to handle the volume of data that today’s businesses generate, and it’s increasingly difficult for IT teams to respond to resource requests in a timely manner, let alone support the analytics that can unlock the value in data. For many organizations, the gap between the ability to gather data and to get insight from is hindering business transformation. Clearly, new storage solutions are needed to manage data more efficiently while containing costs and enabling greater data agility.
Dell EMC ECS is an enterprise-grade object storage platform that solves these data challenges by empowering organizations to use cloud storage to flexibly capture, store, protect and manage unstructured data at public cloud-like scale.
In recent years, many organizations turned to public clouds to try to solve their data management challenges. The public cloud was heralded as the ultimate remedy for digital transformation needs. But these organizations soon discovered that using public cloud storage platforms for data management and storage needs often required difficult compromises and issues with data residency, compliance with regulatory standards and unforeseen costs. Roughly 80% of organizations surveyed have repatriated data from the cloud, 64% report a higher total cost of services than they anticipated , and roughly half of organizations have reported issues with data security and compliance.
While public clouds will inevitably continue to play a role in enterprise storage strategies, many companies are turning to hybrid storage and multi-cloud strategies to manage data more effectively and cost efficiently.
Dell EMC ECS (Elastic Cloud storage) enables organizations to overcome the challenges of data management by easily and cost-efficiently adopting a hybrid or multi-cloud storage model.
ECS is an industry-leading object storage platform built to support traditional and next-generation workloads. ECS can be deployed in multiple consumption models, including software-defined storage, as a turnkey appliance, or as a cloud storage service operated by Dell EMC. With ECS, organizations of any size can cost-effectively store and manage unstructured data at any scale for any length of time.
With a flat, scale-out architecture and strong global consistency, Dell EMC cloud storage helps to achieve the near-infinite scale of the public cloud with a 59.5% lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Additionally, ECS offers deep multiprotocol support – including object, file and HDFS support – along with advanced data integrity, protection and security capabilities.
