Today’s large scale data problems require technology built from the ground up to deliver performance at scale. Customers are voting with their feet as they rapidly adopt DDN’s high-performance storage solutions that seamlessly offer end-to-end data management from data creation, to persistent storage, to active archive and the cloud.
DDN Delivers: 1 Exabyte of Storage Shipped and 16% YoY Growth in FY’2014
What is DDN doing that is different?
1. DDN Delivers: Parallel Access. Traditional scale-out file storage is limited to the performance of a single node and can’t deliver concurrent directory or file access. Whether you call it a Storage Condo, a Data Lake, a Cloud or massive shared storage pool, today’s users expect fast results and don’t accept excuses on delays due to infrastructure.
2. DDN Delivers: Performance at Scale. Traditional storage systems were designed either to deliver high IOPS or high throughput. Today’s data center workloads are highly variable. Each application reads/writes content with different patterns and large scale data centers needs to deliver solutions for a variety of users and use cases. IT managers and Business Unit Directors are stuck with either procuring and managing several technologies to deliver mixed workload demands, or, they embrace a new way of thinking and move to high performance storage that is designed from the bottom up for performance, at scale, regardless of workload.
Traditional IT storage solutions begin to stumble and even fail as they reach 100% capacity or utilization load. While their performance degrades dramatically at peak usage, DDN excels. DDN delivers performance in benchmarks at 0%, 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% file system capacity.
3. DDN Delivers: Efficiency. Traditional IT storage solutions achieve performance through adding hardware, a lot of hardware. We integrate caching, SSD storage, block, file, object and active archive storage in a unified, end-to-end solution. DDN delivers the highest density storage per rack in the market with the fewest controllers to achieve performance. Use ½ of the datacenter space and 1/10th of the controllers, switch ports and switches by switching to DDN.
DDN delivers the infrastructure you need to deliver results, today.
