Companies today are overwhelmingly embracing digital transformation as one of their key strategic priorities. Every single CIO, regardless of industry, company size, or geography, is undergoing some version of a digital transformation journey.
And what is the essential enabler of digital transformation? It’s real-time data. Real-time data is the key to driving innovation and business strategy, and to automating critical business processes, which forms the core of digital transformation.
Real-time data is about the performance, availability and resiliency of data. Achieving real-time data means that access to data is always fast and uninterrupted, and that IT services are always on and connected.
Software-defined storage and workload optimization are the technologies that deliver real-time data. Software-defined storage technology enables a single data integration platform that lets an enterprise query and access all types of data across the network on premises within various sources and systems, as well as the data residing in the cloud, as if it were stored in a single place. It creates a “universal access” environment without ever having to physically move the data.
This frictionless access means required data is delivered to business users and apps quickly, regardless of where it is physically located. It also simplifies application management and supports the unification of endpoint management.
A software-defined storage infrastructure also provides a flexible data management approach that delivers significant savings over traditional data replication and consolidation. This lays a foundation for increased productivity, an empowered digital workspace, and rich desktop and mobile experiences for users, delivered where and when they need them.
Workload optimization is equally important for digital transformation because it decreases latency and delivers faster response times for applications. Workload optimization technology can make workloads more responsive and productive by removing a number of software chokepoints responsible for sluggish behavior and underutilized resources. It’s especially effective during peak periods when many users or tasks compete for data access. Under these conditions, systems tend to bog down as simultaneous requests are serialized waiting on previous requests to complete.
Our history, experience and technology make DataCore uniquely positioned to help business drive their digital transformation initiatives. We pioneered software-defined storage. Our groundbreaking parallelization technology overcomes I/O bottlenecks, delivering dramatic performance improvements, and delivers high availability in a very simple and cost-effective way. With these two technologies, we can help companies take advantage of real-time data while radically improving the economics of their systems.
What does this ultimately mean to the business? More insight from data, and faster responses for analytics and business intelligence applications. Ultimately, the business becomes empowered with more agility to respond to changing conditions.
