Dal momento che i dati non sono più soltanto un business enabler ma sono sempre più la base per un maggior vantaggio competitivo delle aziende, la disponibilità Always On dei dati è diventata un requisito cruciale di ogni organizzazione IT. Con molte diffi coltà, negli anni le aziende hanno lottato nel progettare infrastrutture dati che potessero soddisfare il requisito dell’Always On pagando un costo e una complessità elevate. Affi nché una soluzione sia realmente Always On deve garantire un Recovery Point Objective pari a zero (RPO=0) e un Recovery Time Objective pari a zero (RTO=0). Si tratta di due requisiti necessari per una soluzione Always On ma assolutamente non suffi cienti.
I Big Data e gli analytics workloads sono la nuova frontiera per le aziende. I dati vengono raccolti da fonti che non esistevano 10 anni fa. Tutti i dati dei telefoni cellulari, i dati generati dalle macchine e i dati relativi all’interazione con i siti vengono raccolti e analizzati. Inoltre, con i budget IT sempre più sotto pressione, l’impatto ambientale dei Big Data non fa che aumentare e pone grandi sfi de per i sistemi storage.
Questo documento fornisce informazioni sulle problematiche che le applicazioni dei Big Data pongono sullo storage e su come scegliere le più corrette infrastrutture per ottimizzare e consolidare le applicazioni dei Big Data e degli analytics, senza prosciugare le fi nanze.
Nonostante decenni di progresso industriale e tecnologico, ad oggi non esiste ancora una soluzione storage integrata e universale capace di ridurre i rischi, essere redditizia, eliminare le complessità e integrarsi perfettamente nel modus operandi del business e gestire i dati su larga scala.
Per raggiungere questi obiettivi, è necessario contare su determinate capacità, così da raggiungere i risultati ideali al minor costo possibile. Queste capacità includono la disponibilità, l’affi dabilità, le prestazioni, la densità, la facilità di gestione e l’integrazione dell’ecosistema nelle applicazioni. Questo documento presenta una soluzione innovativa nel panorama dello storage. Si possono così risolvere non solo i problemi di oggi, ma anche quelli di domani.
Lo storage enterprise InfiniBox® fornisce prestazioni migliori rispetto a quelle che si possono ottenere con la tecnologia all flash, un’alta disponibilità su scala multi-petabyte adatta a workload per applicazioni miste. Snapshot a impatto zero e replica active/active migliorano decisamente la business agility, mentre l’encryption data-at-rest certificata FIPS elimina la necessità di cancellare in modo sicuro gli array smantellati. Con InfiniBox, le aziende enterprise IT e i fornitori di servizi cloud possono andare oltre i propri obiettivi di servizio e al contempo abbattere i costi e la complessità delle loro operazioni su scala petabyte.
Maintenant que les données sont devenues un levier de business et aussi un vecteur d’avantage compétitif, la disponibilité permanente des données, Always On, se pose en exigence stratégique attendue de l’organisation IT. Confrontées à plusieurs points de défaillance potentiels, les organisations IT s’eff orcent depuis des années de concevoir leur infrastructure de données de façon à tenir l’objectif Always On, ce qui induit des coûts élevés et une certaine complexité. Pour qu’une solution soit toujours Always On, elle doit avoir un objectif de point de reprise RPO (Recovery Point Objective) de 0 et un objectif de temps de reprise RTO (Recovery Time Objective) de 0. Mais ces conditions certes élémentaires d’une solution Always On ne sont en aucun cas suffi santes.
Même après des décennies d’avancées de l’industrie et de progrès technologiques, il n’existe pas encore de solution de stockage intégrée et universelle capable de réduire les risques, de favoriser la rentabilité, d’éliminer la complexité et de s’intégrer en toute transparence aux opérations et processus de gestion des données à grande échelle.
Pour tenir ces objectifs, il faut des fonctionnalités permettant d’atteindre les meilleurs résultats au meilleur coût., Ces fonctionnalités incluent la disponibilité, la fi abilité, la performance, la densité, la facilité de gestion et l’’intégration de l’écosystème applicatif.
Ce livre blanc propose une nouvelle vision du stockage de données à grande échelle, de façon à régler les problèmes aujourd’hui et dans le futur.
La baie de stockage d’entreprise lnfiniBox® délivre des performances supérieures à la technologie tout-Flash, de hauts niveaux de disponibilité et une évolutivité de plusieurs pétaoctets pour des charges applicatives mixtes. Des instantanés zéro impact et une réplication active/active améliorent nettement l’agilité, tandis que le chiffrement des données au repos validé FlPS élimine la nécessité d’effacer les baies déclassées. Avec InfiniBox, les services IT des entreprises et les fournisseurs de services cloud surpassent les objectifs de niveau de service tout en réduisant le coût et la complexité de leurs opérations de stockage de l’ordre du pétaoctet.
As data becomes not only a business enabler but also the base of the business’s competitive advantage, Always On data availability has become a critical business requirement from its IT organization. With multiple potential points of failure, IT organizations have been struggling for years to design data infrastructure to meet the Always On requirement with a high cost and complexity. For a solution to be truly Always On it needs to have both zero Recovery Point Objective (RPO=0) and zero Recovery Time Objective (RTO=0). These are necessary requirements from an Always On solution but by no means sufficient.
With companies and executives being held accountable for incidents in the workplace, the issue of workers’ health and safety has become a persistent concern for organizations around the world. And with varying standards across borders, confusion about what companies need to do is rampant.
