Data Dynamics Unveils StorageX 8.0
Data Dynamics, a provider of intelligent file management solutions, has released StorageX 8.0, a solution designed to help enterprises to analyze, move, manage and modernize data assets from creation to archive for business transformation. According to the vendor, the new version of StorageX provides support for S3-compliant storage and comprehensive file management from the data center to the cloud - helping to eliminate data silos and vendor lock-in.
While businesses are increasingly relying on data as their primary asset, frequently the underlying infrastructure management of the data is challenged by archaic and proprietary means of managing it, said Piyush Mehta, CEO, Data Dynamics. The result is that it can be difficult for enterprises to leverage the data where and when they want it, while ensuring secure access. With the StorageX 8.0 release, Mehta said, Data Dynamics is providing enterprises the ability to manage data on-premise or within a hybrid cloud securely, utilizing industry standards.
Key features in StorageX 8.0 include the ability to achieve a single view of data across proprietary, storage silos. Now enterprises have a centralized view of all of their files providing valuable insight to turn data into actionable business intelligence. StorageX 8.0 includes a new analysis portal, custom tags, metadata support and analysis to drive your business processes for new IBM Cloud Object Storage, NetApp StorageGRID and S3-compliant object storage.
StorageX also minimizes file movement complexity, cost, and risk with a single file management platform for the simplified movement, transformation, and management of all data assets. StorageX operates across all storage technology types (NAS, File, DFS and Object) using industry standards (NFS, SMB/CIFS, S3) for automated data and file migration. StorageX 8.0 also now includes a new retrieval portal to simplify end users' ability to retrieve S3 archived data back into SMB file format. This allows for the fluid movement of data from file-to-object, or file-to-file for business agility.
Simplifying the ability to effectively manage competing business requirements, StorageX provides a central command center to view, analyze and take action across data assets from migration to file tiering to archival for business optimization and agility. Removing the barriers of proprietary storage types, StorageX allows for faster data movement and easier storage rationalization. StorageX 8.0 also includes comprehensive management, with automated, policy-driven workflows, for S3-compliant object storage as well as an expanded list of object storage resources.
And finally, supporting open standards, StorageX gives users the freedom to choose their future storage and cloud direction, eliminating technology lock-in while supporting business transformation so organizations can respond to changing business demands more quickly. This data modernization is furthered in StorageX 8.0 with support for S3-compliant object storage, transforming files into native a S3 storage format, while providing for native S3 access to their files, as well as the ability to support DevOps projects with efficiency providing APIs for storage management automation and orchestration.
