Data Hydraulics Workshops

In the past, we built our storage environments around the premise that we create data, store data, use data and then backup data. However, how we interact with data has changed dramatically in recent years, and this traditional approach has failed to adapt. Besides practical problems like vendor lock-in and scalability, these systems lag far behind the new intelligent data handling practices.

Today, we need a storage architecture that behaves as a fluid distribution system—providing a defined flow of data from creation, service to the consumer, and then obsolescence. This ‘data hydraulic’ system must be adaptive and flexible enough to adjust to users’ access patterns and then adapt again when greater or lesser performance is required.

Fortunately, this data hydraulic architecture already exists, and you can most likely size and construct it using the same storage components you currently have in your environment.

Data Hydraulicssm Workshop Topics

This workshop includes discussion on how you can…

  • Size and construct a ‘data hydraulic’ architecture using the equipment you already have in your data center
  • Manage your data in a cost effective manner that adapts to growth and usage
  • Provide long -term storage and retirement controls for your datasets using a business value paradigm
  • Create an environment adaptive and flexible enough to adjust to your users’ access patterns and chosen access mediums—and avoid problems with scalability
