What is unified storage architecture?
Unified storage architecture creates a single, end-to-end foundation for dynamic data management. It goes beyond simple multiprotocol storage to provide; integrated data management and data protection, support for all tiers of storage, quality of service and other elements, all in a single platform.
Unified storage architecture enables the creation of a common storage pool that can be networked and shared across a diverse set of applications with a shared set of management processes. The ability to scale from small to very large storage capacity, without compromising application performance or service levels is a key attribute.
Benefits of unified storage:
- improve service levels
- reduce costs of redundancy and minimise the number of point solutions
- move toward an end-to-end data protection plan (backup/recovery, D/R, archiving), with a single management interface
- implement a recovery-centric approach to storage that minimises downtime after an outage
Next generation consolidation
Vohkus also hold the FlexPod Premium Partner status. FlexPod is a pretested data centre solution built on a flexible, scalable, shared infrastructure from Cisco Unified Computing System servers and Cisco Nexus switches, and NetApp unified storage systems running Data ONTAP.
FlexPod components are integrated, and standardised to help you eliminate the guesswork and achieve timely, repeatable, consistent deployments. It has been optimised with a variety of mixed application workloads and design configurations in various environments, such as virtual desktop infrastructure and secure multi-tenancy environments
