Big data, IoT, artificial intelligence, and Industry 4.0 – current IT trends mean that data volume is now growing by 40% a year and will have multiplied by a factor of 5 by 2020. Many data centres are not prepared for these data tsunamis. This is why many companies are making their first tentative steps towards the cloud. But that’s only a partial solution. We need modern storage systems that are powerful, flexible, and scalable. Efficiency, automation, and central management are also fundamental requirements for modern storage environments.
Bechtle will advise you on all questions you might have on storage environments and virtualisation. Need support in expanding your data centre? We’re happy to help you here, too. We offer:
Bechtle’s experienced IT business architects are at your side to show you storage solutions that fit your business goals and requirements.
What storage solution do you envisage? An all-Flash solution? A hybrid storage solution that combines the capacity of hard drives with the performance of Flash storage (SSDs)? Or storage tiering, that offers the benefits of all storage media?
Principally, the most important aspect is how data efficient it is. That is: Which storage media is right for certain types of data? Even all-Flash systems differ greatly in performance, but above all in compression and deduplication. And this applies here too: Not all flash is created equal.
Moreover, there is also the question of whether scale-out architecture is desired or whether a software-defined storage solution such as vSAN is more suitable. The advantages of both solutions: In contrast to the traditional homogenous storage environments, these storage concepts offer maximum scalability and flexibility.
We analyse the data and storage requirements of your data centre with our storage basic check, giving you instant feedback as to how much storage you need and which storage type is the right one. Based on this data, the Bechtle IT business architects plan and put together an efficient storage architecture for you.
