Tiered Data Management
The Industry's Leading All-in-one Data Management Platform
SGI DMF delivers the industry's leading large-scale, storage virtualization and data management solution. Specifically engineered to match the needs of highly scalable and extremely dynamic high performance computing (HPC) and data analytics (HPDA) applications, the DMF platform provides virtually limitless storage capacity and scalable I/O capabilities. It has been proven for more than two decades in some of the world's most demanding data environments.
The all-in-one DMF solution combines data management with archive and integrated backup capabilities. It helps customers cost-effectively manage their storage needs without limiting user access to data.
Automated data management transparently moves data from expensive high performance storage located close to the point of compute with cost-managed high capacity storage based on multiple technologies that can include object storage, cloud storage and library-based tape or power-managed SGI® DMF™ Zero Watt Storage™ (ZWS). The versatile SGI ZWS on-promise storage tier adds the highest levels of disk-based data access performance along with cost and power/cooling utilization that rivals traditional tape-while significantly outperforming cloud storage in both the cost and performance.
As such the DMF-approach can yield as much as an 80% decrease in the cost of capacity data storage when compared to scaling out capacity using traditional Tier-1 disk storage.
Holistic, policy-driven and centralized data management platform DMF provides a number of benefits:
