Using IBM Cloud Object Storage with Komprise Data Management to Curb NAS expansion

Identify data across your storage and transparently move infrequently accessed data to more cost-efficient IBM Cloud Object Storage

Published April 2019


Data is growing fast—nearly 90 percent of the world’s data was created in the last two years, and enterprise data is doubling every two years. The challenge is how to retain all this data within flat budgets. Businesses need to do more with less and are looking to affordable scale-out storage options such as cloud and object storage.

Although amounts vary by company, many IBM and Komprise clients report that as much as 60 – 90 percent of their data is infrequently accessed within months of creation, and yet enterprises often store and manage it in the same way as active data. This is because there have been no easy approaches to identifying inactive data and moving it without disrupting users. How can you seamlessly leverage the scale and cost-efficiency of object storage along with the performance of your existing network-attached storage (NAS) infrastructure without creating any disruption to users or applications?
