LATEST INTELLIGENCE ACCELERATE WORKLOAD PERFORMANCE A BLUEPRINT TO STORAGE MODERNIZATION PRESENTED BY E Executive summary Download whitepaper here 20 INTELLIGENTCIO Organizations are running their business on exponentially more data, created by more users, from different devices, and through different digital processes. While some data growth is fueled by new applications, it also arrives increasingly from non-traditional IT sources, including digital media, machines, and edge devices. Edge IoT devices are generating a massive amount of data that must be managed, monitored, stored, and analyzed. Deciding where to perform each of these functions is critical to supporting new data-driven business processes. These data types demand more varied approaches to storage than traditional structured data. This creates challenges to storage infrastructure performance, management, and protection. In a digital enterprise, there is constant change through data consumption, sales, creation, processing and analysis by multiple application and business teams. Meanwhile, current and emerging storage and infrastructure technologies such as software-defined, all-flash, high-performance, and integrated systems are disrupting the status quo. With so much disruption, most organizations are trying to determine where to start their transformation. HPE recommends that you assess your data because it should drive your storage needs.
