Dell recently announced Intelligent Data Management (IDM) solutions especially to help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that offer an open, capable, affordable way of managing digital assets.
Part of the uniqueness is Dell’s Fluid Data technology combining a powerful data movement engine, intelligent software and modular hardware that can help cut costs up to 80 percent. Committed to listening to its customers, Dell is thus strongly positioned and focused on investing in creating storage intellectual property that solves the most pressing storage problems.
According to IDC, a premier global market intelligence firm, the amount of digital information produced in 2011 is expected to equal almost 1,800 exabytes, a ten-fold increase from the data produced five years ago. Of this data, 95 percent will be hard-to-manage unstructured data (emails, word documents, videos etc.) and another 90 percent of this information is never accessed after creation.
Dell’s comprehensive IDM strategy, effective archiving can help organizations increase efficiency for IT staff while cost-effectively meeting compliance requirements and streamlining backup processes. By adopting Dell’s modular approach and automated, rules-based movement and retention capabilities, enterprises can meet their expanding storage needs without overwhelming infrastructure or driving up costs.
Fluid Data Architecture solutions demonstrate another addition to Dell’s larger initiatives to address storage challenges, and are helping customers efficiently and flexibly move the right data to the right place at the right time at the right cost.
On the sidelines of the event, Satyen told SME Times, “Our IDM solution helps better manage data growth, reduce storage costs and simplify IT infrastructure management. It helps businesses automate, optimize, scale, and protect storage to create an increasingly agile, increasingly Efficient Enterprise.”
“It also improves your storage forecasting and aligns relative business value of your data with appropriate storage costs,” he added
