How Hybrid Cloud NAS(Network Attached Storage) is changing the way storage is managed?
Delivering greater performance and scalability to hybrid cloud infrastructures, a hybrid cloud platform provides the flexibility to integrate the existing NAS architectures with Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) without relinquishing execution.
With ongoing development of file system and caching technologies, this white paper explains the advantage of bridging the AWS storage and compute cloud services to strategically leverage cloud compute, storage, or both.
This Virtual Edge filer (vFXT), a software-only file system bridges AWS storage and compute cloud services giving the ability to strategically leverage cloud compute and storage efficiently. To make the sustainable decisions to manage the growing demands of unstructured data, this agile cloud NAS together with AWS helps in simplifying big data storage and management while gaining performance and value from storage.
This whitepaper addresses the following questions:
How to manage the increasingly complex enterprise data storage?
How to get faster and more accessible data using a hybrid cloud NAS?
What are the features and advantages of this hybrid cloud NAS?
How can organizations leverage Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud and this hybrid cloud NAS platform?
What is Data Management ?
Data management is the development and execution of policies and procedures in order to manage the information lifecycle needs of an enterprise ensuring the accessibility, reliability, and timeliness of the data for its users. Data Management enables organizations and enterprises to use data in: Organizing the enterprise data, Storing and preserving data for future re-use, Making data ready to use anytime, Share data with colleagues
What is Storage Management ?
Storage Management Definition: Storage management usually refers to the management of Computer data storage, which includes memory management.
What is Cloud infrastructure ?
Cloud infrastructure consists of back-end elements primarily comprising of server hardware components, virtual machines, storage and networking facilities, and software that provide access to the cloud for applications and other services. It can also refer to on-demand service delivered through the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) model.
