Your organization is experiencing explosive data growth, and your environment is complex and inflexible, but you want to reduce overall costs. You don’t just need more storage. You also need a better storage management strategy.
With the right tools, you can monitor, manage, back up, and migrate your data with minimal disruption to users. Using F5 data management solutions, you can ensure optimal utilization of storage resources—including cloud storage—while reducing overall operational costs.
Even in simple IT environments, data migrations are a common occurrence. With F5, you can perform migrations, consolidations, technology refreshes, and reprovisioning events in less time, with lower IT overhead, and with no disruption to business. F5 data management solutions can reduce the total cost of even complex migrations in heterogeneous storage environments.
When your data is growing faster than your storage budget, you need a way to do more with less. F5 can help you seamlessly integrate lower-cost storage technologies into your existing infrastructure and automatically tier files to the proper storage location based on usage. Net result? You protect your critical business data, reduce your backup times, and guarantee users streamlined access to files.
You can’t always predict how your data will grow. Some storage resources constantly hit their capacity limits, while others are barely utilized. With F5, you can dynamically balance capacity utilization across multiple storage resources, reduce the cost of storing data, and ensure optimal performance of your storage environment.
As file data grows, so do the amounts of time and tape required to back up that data. Before your backup times start to exceed your backup windows, you need a strategy. F5 helps optimize your file storage environment for data backup so you can protect your business data while maintaining business continuity.
Planning a move to the cloud but not sure what to store there? Tier the wrong data in the cloud and your bandwidth costs will soar while access performance suffers. F5 can help you effectively integrate private and public cloud storage solutions into your existing storage environment using file virtualization and data management policies. Get the tools you need to determine what data to store in the cloud, plus the control you need to make it so.
