Managing data at scale is becoming an increasingly complex endeavor for the distributed enterprise. To capitalize on current and future business opportunities, enterprises must implement a strategy to efficiently manage mass data across cloud, edge, and endpoint environments. This white paper draws from a global survey of IT decision makers to offer key insights and recommendations that will help enterprises future-proof data management for mass storage, migration, and movement of data.
Hybrid architectures that utilize both centralized and edge-based storage resources were identified as IT decision makers’ preferred deployment model—a critical element of data management strategy.
99% of survey respondents report moving data between distributed storage locations across their organizations, with most using physical data transfer.
99% of survey respondents say they incur planned or unplanned egress fees. On average, these charges comprise roughly 6% of an enterprise’s public cloud storage bill.
When it comes to data storage both on premises and in operational edge locations, storage management complexity is the number-one challenge facing enterprises.
