By some distance, unstructured data is the most abundant type of data most businesses have, but leveraging it is impossible. That is unless you have a scale-out file solution that can bring structure to that unstructured data. Dell EMC PowerScale is one of the best solutions available, offering the ability to take data from storage and manage it en masse.
Data management is one of the biggest unsolved challenges for businesses that generate a lot of data. While unstructured data has an internal structure, meaning it is useful, it is dead by default, because it has no predefined data model.
According to projections from IDC, 80% of worldwide data will be unstructured by 2025. There is nothing scary about this projection, but most businesses have no way to use unstructured data using conventional systems.
This means businesses are going to miss out on significant amounts of data intelligence, which is a scary proposition.
The new standard for unstructured data storage
Dell EMC PowerScale is a product designed specifically for unstructured data. It enables you to crunch data and gain insight from it.
You can run PowerScale in the edge, core or Cloud with the same results. In the simplest sense, what it does is bring structure to unstructured data. This enables the data to be used so that you can tap into data intelligence.
For example, Dell PowerScale can help you understand business results, act on opportunities, and anticipate market trends based on data you have collected, but would otherwise not be able to use because it is unstructured.
PowerScale clusters can scale from terabytes to petabytes and crunch millions of file operations. The platform uses a future-proof scale-out architecture to provision capacity and performance as you need it. This keeps your costs low and simplifies the system, with no over-provisioning or unnecessary upgrades.
The PowerScale family includes OneFS 9.0 running across PowerScale nodes, with all-flash and hybrid architecture, as well as cloud (multi-cloud and native) support with Azure, AWS, and Google. It is seamlessly scalable and designed to meet the needs of your business long into the future, enabling you to leverage the power of unstructured data.
