The ABCs of Storage Virtualization

Agility:

Move data without disruption among virtual storage systems:

  • Use different storage systems for different tiers of storage.
  • Manage all your storage in a consistent way with common tools.

Bridging:

Bridge to new storage technologies or application areas such as containers:

  • Ease adoption of new technology so you benefit quickly.
  • Add new storage systems and migrate data without disruption, plus support containers and Red Hat OpenShift with the storage you already have.

Cloud:

Add hybrid cloud capability to your storage:

  • Deploy a unified cloud capability across all storage types and different clouds.
  • Enjoy hybrid multicloud that is simple, consistent, and comprehensive.

Data Reduction:

Store more data on the storage you already own:

  • Support growing volumes of data .
  • Avoid or delay new purchases, reducing capex needs.

Encryption:

Improve cyber resiliency by encrypting data at rest:

  • Apply consistent encryption and key management across storage systems.
  • Make cyber resiliency simple and dependable.
