The growth and sprawl of unstructured data is a result of technology advancements accelerating computer-generated information, intelligent portable devices, network file share systems, and collaboration applications leading to disparate data silos scattered throughout an organization. Locked in repositories, inaccessible by most, and providing limited value to businesses, data becomes a cost center. Traditional storage technology stacks were not designed for the influx of data that plagues enterprises of today. This challenge has increasingly become a burden for organizations trying to address current data overload, while seeking a long term sustainable solution.
This phenomenon has caused a monumental shift in the storage industry. Organizations must reevaluate their storage infrastructures to accommodate the wealth of information that is unbeknownst to them, untapped within repositories, vulnerable to compliance and posing a risk to business. Through this revelation, Data Defined Storage evolved, to fulfill the gap among organizations struggling to bring structure, governance and accessibility to their information pools.
Data Defined Storage provides the infrastructure for converting massive data flows into opportunities by uniting application, information and storage tiers into a single data centric architecture, perfect for extracting valuable information and drawing insights to gain market intelligence, increase efficiencies, and optimize storage. Tarmin introduces GridBank, the first purpose-built solution designed to meet the vision of Data Defined Storage by reducing storage costs, mitigating compliance and security risks, and monetizing information assets for enhanced competitive advantage.
The rapid growth of our company, through value enhancing acquisitions and successful exploration, is generating more and more data, much of it in isolated pools. [GridBank] will allow us to organize, store and protect our G&G data and create a platform for improving business efficiency while reducing TCO.
