Software Defined Storage

Maximise availability, increase performance and reduce costs

The IT landscapes of many SMBs and large organisations often feature heterogeneous storage infrastructures with distributed storage systems, remote management tools and high operating and admin costs.

Alongside server consolidation and virtualisation, the focus is increasingly on storage systems as the stored data is a company’s essential asset. Data is vital to ensure a seamless transaction of critical business processes in your organisation.

If data becomes unavailable, production stops, delivery deadlines cannot be met and an organisation suffers a drop in sales.

A vast range of systems and technologies are available on the market. This is why it makes sense for companies to cooperate with an experienced IT service provider such as transtec to analyse which products and solutions are best suited for their application requirements.

Virtualising servers and storage systems has become a vital part of an organisation’s IT strategy, no matter how small the company is. The key objectives behind virtualisation include optimising hardware resources by consolidating them, increasing flexibility and reducing the costs for energy, cooling or space requirement. Storage virtualisation, just as server virtualisation, leverages the existing physical resources, centralises and simplifies management and can increase availability by deploying live migration. In this way, your administrators can transfer virtualised environments from a physical server to another without any system or operating downtimes.

Storage virtualisation leverages existing capacities by delivering a fast and flexible supply of the required storage capacities. For a long time, individual applications were allocated with fixed storage resources in a storage pool.

This created a typical over-provisioning scenario as many of the applications did not utilise the storage resources allocated to them. This is now over – thanks to thin-provisioning which provides a method for optimising utilisation of available storage capacities. This results in an efficient allocation of data to improve fast access and performance.

Although the average IT budget grows by a maximum of 5% each year, the IT landscape is faced with increasingly more tasks that it has to manage within the organisation.
