Boost your Cloud Efficiency and Performance with DDN Cloud Migration Services

Many organizations have adopted an executive-led “cloud-first” strategy for driving transformation as they look to modernize their IT infrastructure and bring new levels of agility and cost transformation to their business applications.

However, moving Big Data and AI workloads to the cloud can bring significant strategic and capital expenditure pressures when processing large datasets. In addition, migrating data-intensive workloads to the cloud can uncover new challenges, such as performance bottlenecks, data management issues and skyrocketing expenses compared to on-premises deployments.

This is where DDN can help with our experience of addressing complex data challenges and our portfolio of tools to increase cloud mobility and migration services. DDN’s Cloud solutions are certified and validated to manage an entire data migration journey for customers who do not want to deal with the complexity themselves. DDN Cloud services, designed to protect and optimize cloud investments are supported by an experienced services team with years of expertise working with cloud deployments for scalable performance-hungry applications.

End-to-End Data Mobility for Cloud Migration

Adopting a data-first cloud strategy means you need data mobility in the cloud – and moving petabytes of data around can be a big data challenge.

DDN DataFlow, an all-inclusive data protection archive and migration tool, now supports bidirectional data flow to public cloud storage, whether it’s to an EXAScaler file system or another cloud service. As a result, you now have the best cloud platform mobility, moving data between cloud providers like Google Cloud Platform, AWS, and Microsoft Azure and vice versa. DataFlow also adds the flexibility to allow customers to consume the most efficient or low-cost storage options with the enablement of inter-cloud movement and repatriating data from the cloud back to on-premises.
