The Data Management Challenge

Organizations face challenges in improving structured and unstructured data access while reducing the costs to store it. Open-Source SDS and Cloud Orchestrator solutions take these challenges by separating data services from hardware and creating a new era for data access. By using software-defined storage solutions, companies can benefit from improved reliability and agility, exceptional storage performance and eliminated vendor lock-in.
