Balancing Hybrid Storage Technology as Part of a Hybrid Cloud Data Management Strategy

A Pathfinder paper navigates decision-makers through the issues surrounding a specific technology or business case, explores the business value of adoption, and recommends the range of considerations and concrete next steps in the decision-making process.

The goal of this paper is to examine the changing nature of business data, the current challenges of enterprise storage, and the evolving roles of SSD and hard disk drive (HDD) technologies in light of the steady trends of massive data growth, limited budgets, public cloud adoption and the advent of a new generation of data sources, such as those introduced by Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives.
