The storage building blocks of dynamic infrastructure
Whether it is traditional applications, such as financial services or health care, or new generation workloads, such as digital media and Web 2.0, the data explosion is real. 15 petabytes of new information is generated per day -- eight-times more information than in all US libraries combined. And whether it’s a petabyte or a gigabyte of data that your next generation applications create, you still need fast access to your information.
Because of the need to scale up and down rapidly, handle rich data, and have always-on capability, traditional storage isn’t always affordable for next generation applications. Companies that start small can have challenges migrating from entry to enterprise storage in the middle of a growth spurt. Instead, next generation applications need next generation storage solutions from IBM.
What we offer
Next generation scalable storage solutions from IBM use grid architectures to address the inherent requirements of next generation applications, including the ability to:
Automated and virtualized data management, and dramatically simplified systems management help tame your dynamic workloads.
Simplify operations with one global namespace and one point of management for up to 500 billion files.
Deliver scalability, performance, and long term affordable retention for medical imaging applications.
The benefits of IBM next generation scalable storage solutions are real. Some examples:
Virginia Commonwealth University Health System strategically redesigned their storage solution by deploying an all-IBM solution.
Spectrum Health, the largest healthcare system in Western Michigan, turned to IBM for an innovative new approach to storage infrastructure for their core PACS medical imaging application.
Kantana Animations uses IBM Scale-out File Services which provides their animators with rapid and easy access to shared projects.
Iowa Health Systems benefits from a scalable, IBM storage solution to store and manage their sensitive patient data.
