Compuverde, a provider of software-defined storage, is partnering with Data Dynamics, a provider of intelligent file management.
The combination of Data Dynamics' StorageX solution and Compuverde provides a modern platform to manage data assets from migration to file tiering to archival. The goal is to offer enterprise customers the freedom to choose their future storage and cloud direction, eliminating technology lock-in while supporting business transformation with greater speed and agility.
In the vendors’ view, businesses increasingly see data as their primary asset, but the underlying infrastructure used to manage the data is often archaic and proprietary, making it challenging for them to adapt quickly to changing business demands.
Traditional storage solutions lock enterprises into “hard-wired proprietary systems” that can't adapt quickly enough to manage large quantities of data, said Stefan Bernbo, CEO and founder, Compuverde. The partnership with Data Dynamics supports a more modern approach to data storage that gives organizations greater control of their data management.
Compuverde's software-defined storage solution and Data Dynamics' StorageX solution support business transformation in a number of ways, the companies say.
StorageX helps minimize file movement complexity, cost, and risk with a single file management platform for the simplified movement, transformation and management of all data assets. By removing the barriers of proprietary storage types, StorageX also allows for faster adoption of new Compuverde software-defined storage. StorageX includes management, with automated, policy-driven workflows, all fully tested with Compuverde's scalable solution.
Data modernization is furthered in StorageX 8.0 with support for Compuverde object storage, transforming files into native object storage format, while providing direct access to their files.
The partnership also provides the ability to support DevOps projects with efficiency - providing application programming interfaces for storage management automation and orchestration.
