Why does big data storage matter?
Most organizations agree that data should be at the heart of decision-making. To transform data into insight, you have to think differently about your infrastructure and big data storage is a key consideration.
Thousands of IBM customers have proven that you can deliver faster insights and cost savings – if you succeed in efficiently managing big data storage.
Demands for big data storage
USAA builds a multi-tenant big data infrastructure.
Memorial Hermann Health provides real-time analysis of patient data.
JFK Performing Arts Center reduces storage costs by 90%.
IBM big data storage advantages
Simplified storage management
IBM Storage solutions for data management support all applications, data types and hundreds of heterogeneous storage systems, including cloud-based systems.
Data management optimizes data performance and costs through capacity planning, storage utilization and data placement. All by moving data between storage systems without disrupting users or applications.
IBM Spectrum Control provides comprehensive monitoring, automation and analytics to reduce costs and provide insights into your storage environments.
Highly scalable, high-performance unified storage
IBM Storage offers an optimal platform to manage big data—both structured and unstructured—to help accelerate analytics of new workloads including social and mobile applications.
IBM supports industry standards, including OpenStack and Hadoop, to complement IBM innovations with solutions from other providers and communities.
IBM Spectrum Scale software-defined storage delivers agility and massive scale on premises or in the cloud.
Improved data economics
IBM Storage solutions use automatic policy-based storage tiering, which moves data from flash through disk to tape and cloud tier. This process allocates key data to highest performing tiers and reduces costs by moving "cold" data to lower cost tiers.
IBM Spectrum Archive delivers cost-effective archiving by enabling users and applications to directly access files stored on tape. By replacing traditional disk storage with tape, you can save over $40,000 per month (PDF, 686KB) in storage costs.
IBM storage solutions help you improve speed to data and gain new levels of meaningful visibility into data. They help accelerate business applications and speed time to insight, to help you make data-driven decisions that will empower your business.
IBM Flash storage solutions provide the microseconds responses, scalable performance and operational efficiency today's organizations require to unlock insights from massive volumes of data.
Advanced data protection
IBM offers a scalable infrastructure to protect and recover all types of data including files, objects and databases hosted on premises and in the cloud. Backup and recovery times for critical data can be reduced from hours to just minutes.
