The unrelenting growth of unstructured data is creating storage and management issues for organizations of all sizes. Current solutions based on a file system frontend and backend, like SAN or NAS, can’t scale at the rate needed and can have serious performance issues as capacity increases.
These solutions often utilize RAID protection methods leading to crippling rebuild times and increasing exposure to data loss as RAID groups grow. Additionally, archiving and backup applications advertised as solutions are actually compounding the issue by driving the retention of multiple copies leading to increased costs and unrealistic backup, and worse, restore windows.
These methods of managing data growth are also adding layers of complexity that test the skill, and the patience, of even the most seasoned system administrators
