Proliferation of Cloud Integrated Storage (CIS)
Traditional enterprise storage is increasingly witnessing a shift towards cloud integrated storage. This proliferation of CIS can be attributed to the cloud features such as reduced capital investment, automated backups, efficient disaster recovery solutions, data scalability and faster data archival along with the advantages offered by traditional storage solutions.
CIS not only shifts the center of storage, but also shifts control from data center hardware to the cloud. Each hardware unit thus, becomes an access point to the system, resulting in complete decoupling of data from hardware. This whitepaper provides a comprehensive understanding of CIS, comparison between CIS and traditional NAS solutions, and further delves into:
