Eliminating the Problems of Exponential Data Growth, Forever

1,123 views

Published on

Balancing explosive data growth while addressing the need for extended data protection is mandatory for any IT department. But customers today find it difficult to address these challenges because of the software management layers and tools required in order to meet longer retention mandates. While exponential data growth is not a new problem, the quandary that IT faces in 2014, now has a new solution.

Join Spectra and IDC as we identify the greatest dilemmas facing data centers in 2014, and explore the capabilities of Spectra’s newest product, the BlackPearl™ Deep Storage Appliance. During this brief webinar, attendees will learn about:

-A situation analysis of today’s software-defined data center
-How moving to an “elastic” data center enables more cost-effective and efficient data management
-Emerging technologies and key strategies to store and manage data indefinitely

Eliminating the Problems of Exponential Data Growth, Forever

  1. 1. The Challenges of Managing and Protecting Expodential Data Growth Robert Amatruda, Research Director Data Protection and Recovery
  2. 2. The Challenges of Managing and Protecting Expodential Data Growth  Customers increasingly managing not just information but infrastructure  Increasingly, geo-dispersed data drive the need for flexible and agile infrastructure  Rapid unstructured data growth as a result of mobility, social media, big data and cloud adoption  Data growth, virtualization, optimization and edge protection coupled with more aggressive RTO/RPO’s driving more use of disk and replication © IDC Visit us at IDC.com and follow us on Twitter: @IDC 2
  3. 3. Explosion of Devices and Management Challenges in the Datacenter Data centers are the cornerstone of business… …managing both infrastructure and information.
  4. 4. The Evolving Data Landscape App Data User Data Ever-growing data sets require dispersed data management  Workloads need to run where the data is located  Geo-dispersed data sets require geo-dispersed workloads Mobile Data Decentralized data stores  Workloads are gaining location awareness  Social media, big data and cloud usage is generating more unstructured data  Machines generating more semistructured IDC Confidential 4
  5. 5. Unstructured Data is Growing Rapidly  Implications of Unstructured Data growth:  Drives the need for capacity optimized systems that house unstructured data  Unstructured data can be stored/accessed via onpremises or cloud-based delivery models  Object-based storage platforms also power the cloud storage-as-aservice solutions 140 120 100 80 60 40 20 0 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 Capacity Optimized (shipped PB) Performance Optimized (shipped PB) • UNSTRUCTURED DATA accounts for 70-80% of storage capacity growth • Capacity-optimized storage spending growth has 16.2% CAGR 5
  6. 6. Top Unstructured Data Use-Cases How is your organizations’ file-based data split amongst these following types of files? File and print services or network shares 31% Virtual server or desktop images 14% Back up/Recovery 19% CAD/Images (pictures, X-rays, records) 8% Video/audio (surveillance, training, entertainment) 7% Archive 16% Big Data (Hadoop Clusters) 5% Others 1% 0% 10% 2013 20% % of respondents 2012 30% 40% N=150 © IDC Visit us at IDC.com and follow us on Twitter: @IDC 6
