Businesses, especially with mission-critical applications, can’t afford a system downtime or any kind of disruption as it will have a negative impact on its operations, reputation, and finances.

What is intelligent storage?

Intelligent storage is a storage system or service that uses Artificial Intelligence or A.I. It continuously learns and adapts to its hybrid cloud environment to better manage and serve data.

AI algorithms gather performance information across storage systems and then study it to discern patterns, whether in application behavior, data movement, or hardware reliability. In this way, small tendencies can be spotlighted, making it possible to automatically prevent performance issues before they develop.

Why use intelligent storage?

A hybrid cloud world means a massive amount of data is being generated all the time. The data can be incredibly useful, but only if it can be accessed, organized and analyzed. Traditional data storage systems were not designed to effectively handle this task, meaning valuable data is hidden or overlooked and enterprise and IT resources are strained.

Intelligent storage systems remove the barriers that keep businesses from taking advantage of their data by understanding what workloads need, adapting to changes in real-time and simplifying management and support.


It’s also versatile as it can be deployed as hardware on-premises, as a virtual appliance, or as a cloud service. It can move data where it needs to be and proactively optimize data through its life cycle. It also provides data protection and encryption to eliminate potential security threats and is sold in a pay-as-you-go model.
