With pressure on IT increasing, to support innovation and data volumes and importance of data availability & security reaching new highs, it is clear things have to change in how you store and protect your data.
Cloud computing technologies have been emerging for many years and it is clear that we can state it has now become a integral part of IT strategy for all organisations. But how do we move data to the cloud, which data do we move to the cloud and how do we connect internal data storage to the cloud. I have written on multi cloud infrastructures and how to connect IBM Spectrum Virtualize based systems to the public cloud and what benefits are of a multi cloud setup. We have also described how today’s business needs and multi cloud setups require a radical change in how you protect data over multiple clouds, whether data is stored internally or externally.
Today we bring you a validated design on how to implement IBM’s record breaking FlashSystem 9100, a 100% NVMe flash storage solution, with Rubrik Cloud Data Management in hybrid multi cloud environment.
This blueprint has been created to make it easier for clients to implement hybrid cloud infrastructure for data storage with 100% NVMe flashstorage from IBM in your internal datacenter, Rubrik Cloud Data Management on premises and in the cloud and a connection to IBM Cloud which runs IBM Cloud Object Storage, Vmware on IBM Cloud and baremetal servers.
Optionally you can also use AWS, Azure or other cloud resources and mirror data to a secondary IBM FlashSystem. You can also easily add Lenovo or IBM Power9 servers.
- Do you require faster data storage on premises?
- Does your business ask for higher availability & increased resilience?
- Do you want to introduce DR capabillities in the Cloud?
- Does your digital business imply you need to implement cloud data management?
- Do you want to reduce operator management time?
- Do you need to improve security and protection of your data?
- Do you want to lower risk of data loss and protect data over multiple clouds?
- Do you want to lower TCO?
