Cost-Effective Solutions for Instantly Accessible Data
By 2025 market research indicates that the total amount of data generated worldwide is forecast to rise steeply to more than 163 zettabytes, which is an impressive yet challenging amount of data. A large majority of this information is represented by unstructured data which is currently growing at 50% or greater year on year motivating a new demand for capacity at a scale that is cost effective.
Organisations regardless of sector are recognising the power and value that their data represents, analysing data across different phases of the operations to drive efficiency, differentiation and market competitiveness, resulting in the need for data to be more instantly accessible, to be made available with business context and to allow rapid search capabilities is of utmost importance.
Traditional storage designs cannot address this new world requirement in terms of complexity at scale and the economics. Tape still provides an economical capacity tier however fails to deliver the access and search features to allow organisations to gain value and insights from the data.
Object storage provides a solution to address these problems combining an infinitely scalable file system with a clustered and dispersed architecture built for long-term data durability, a sound economic model and most importantly allows the data to driven and addressed by metadata.
Digital Sense has built an Enterprise Object platform
Our DataServe Object (DSO) has been developed with this demand in mind, our consumption-based service delivers a highly-durable, scalable, simple object storage (S3) service that uses erasure coding dispersed across multiple data centres – currently 3 data centres in Queensland.
DSO is hybrid cloud and multi cloud ready to extend the data object footprint either to or from on-premises, in Digital Sense and with hyperscalers such as AWS. Our unique network grid also provides customers with considerable costs savings for data transfer with no ingress or egress charges.
Digital Sense DSO object integrates tightly with the broader Digital Sense solution sets allowing customers to extend applications from our Enterprise Infrastructure and Storage services in a seamless, low-latency, secure way without the challenges of connectivity or data transfer.
The problem Object Storage solves is one of capacity, any organisation dealing with a large amount of data should be looking to a solution that includes Object Storage. Services like Digital Sense’s DataServe Object can offer competitive Object Storage solutions that can scale to any service requirement.
