Are Secondary Storage Appliances Right for Your Organization?
Trick question. Odds are you already – manage secondary data storage somewhere: the amount of data stored worldwide is estimated to add up to 175 zettabytes by 2025 and the big data and business analytics (BDA) market to be valued at nearly $275 billion by 2022². However, how do you simplify what has traditionally been a burdensome task?
This is exactly where Nutanix Mine with HYCU comes in. Nutanix Mine with HYCU finally brings to secondary storage what Nutanix revolutionized for primary storage: the one-click simplicity and ease of use of the Enterprise Cloud OS platform in space-saving form factors.
Next-Generation Secondary Storage and Nutanix Mine with HYCU
Backup appliances are not new - they have been around enterprises for more than a decade. Purpose-built to rapidly deploy and offset the need to manage separate silos of hardware and software, it became popular, for legacy infrastructure. These appliances still remained useful when cloud and hyper-converged infrastructure emerged but added to the overall complexity of managing and tightly integrating with the platform of choice. This created issues around complexity, manageability, interoperability, and access.
However, secondary data may very well need to be unarchived quickly such as a new stakeholder asking for access to that data for research. Not to mention your organization will also continue to generate data to be stored and managed on top of this: research from HubSpot suggests enterprises expect the amount of data stored to increase by 33% in the next 12 to 18 months.
Managing secondary data should not drain IT resources - regardless of how many boxes you checked above. The question now is: are you ready to manage this deluge of information that you may or may not need to be readily accessible?
