According to a new press release, “Primary Data is introducing its new DataSphere data orchestration platform to automate IT storage services and ensure applications meet business objectives by uniting enterprises’ different storage resources across flash, object/cloud, SAN, and NAS systems for the first time. Through data virtualization, the Primary Data DataSphere platform transparently connects storage infrastructure from any vendor, media or protocol under a single, global dataspace, allowing data to easily move between server, shared and cloud storage without application interruption.”
Lance Smith, Primary Data CEO, noted, “Storage diversity across flash, cloud, hyper-converged, and traditional systems give enterprises the right storage tool for any job, but until now, data has been trapped in the typical storage silos, forcing IT to overprovision and limit the value of billions of dollars of enterprises storage investments… DataSphere automatically orchestrates the right data to the right place at the right time according to IT-defined objectives, without business or application disruption. This industry first can easily cut customers’ storage costs in half by finally aligning data to the ideal storage system according to business needs.”
The release continues, “DataSphere unites heterogeneous storage resources across file, block and object protocols by separating the data path from the control path through data virtualization. The uniquely storage-agnostic DataSphere architecture gives customers the flexibility to easily add new storage resources to their infrastructure. By connecting storage resources across a global dataspace, DataSphere significantly increases utilization of existing storage to reduce overprovisioning and save budget.”
