Mission Critical Storage

Mission Critical Storage

As enterprises become more digital, the role of mission-critical applications on which the functioning of the business depends. In practice, this requires more platform flexibility to serve both traditional applications and modern cloud computing.

IT professionals who are already fully loaded with support for traditional corporate tools, such as virtualization or database management systems, have to implement and maintain modern applications such as containers or analytics.

Server virtualization has almost become the main driver for the development of storage virtualization, especially since virtual machines have already penetrated quite a lot into the critical applications segment.

Data storage systems help to cope with the ever-growing volumes of data, allowing you to effectively work with information. Storage systems for mission-critical applications are focused on the needs of companies of various sizes - from remote branches to large enterprises with significant amounts of information.

Also many factors affect the selection of a data center location, but utility infrastructure, uptime, talent, and speed are always the focal points.

Few people are unaware of the large electric loads (usage) of data centers. Naturally, due to the amount of power they need, data centers are very price-sensitive to a location’s cost of electricity. The cost is more than centers per kWh, though. Data centers have unique ramp-up needs and reserved capacity demands. The utility’s ability to accommodate these requirements can have a significant impact on cost. Likewise, the mission-critical aspect of the data center, requiring it to be online at all times, drives rigorous power redundancy and reliability requirements. The utility’s “cost-to-serve” and revenue credit policies must be factored into the overall cost of providing the requisite power.
