Infinidat, multinacional israelí especializada en soluciones de almacenamiento para empresas, acaba de publicar un whitepaper en el que, por un lado, analiza los nuevos modelos de consolidación de almacenamiento. Y por otro muestra los beneficios de las nuevas arquitecturas multi-controladoras respecto a los sistemas actuales de doble controladora.

¿Qué necesitan las empresas para acelerar sus procesos de transformación digital? ¿Y qué puede hacer Infinidat para acompañar a las compañías a la hora de optimizar la información dentro del centro de datos? Estas son dos de las principales preguntas a las que contesta Israel Serrano, country manager de Infinidat Iberia, en nuestra video-entrevista exclusiva.

"NOTICIASCinco retos en materia de almacenamiento y gestión de datos a los que se enfrentan los equipo de TI en la «nueva normalidad»Publicado el16 septiembre, 2020por RedaccionMCP infinidat-infinilab
¿De qué forma pueden gestionarse de forma óptima los datos de las empresas en un momento en el que, debido a la crisis del COVID-19, las compañías se encuentran en una completa incertidumbre financiera? Infinidat, proveedor independiente de soluciones de almacenamiento de clase empresarial, recomienda las siguientes claves de eficiencia en rendimiento y costes, para que la gestión del almacenamiento no se convierta en un problema."

Mantener menos sistemas más rentables, contener el gasto y respaldar la velocidad que requiere el negocio para capitalizar las nuevas oportunidades, son algunos desafíos de almacenamiento que afrontan los equipos de TI. Combinar la nube pública y la nube privada bajo un modelo de pricing elástico ayuda a hacer frente al desafiante panorama actual.

"Undoubtedly, no one expected the extent of this crisis, and even today it leaves big questions in the markets.

That second wave that we all fear is becoming more and more tangible every day. And, while many companies try to recover from the blow, those that learned to be flexible and to change have managed to survive and even gain a competitive advantage over the rest, and technology has played a key role in all this.

In the new normal, "resilience" is much more

"Resilience" is a familiar concept in IT that refers to the ability of a network or system to adapt to change and protect the business and its customers from disasters or standard outages. However, when it comes to a global disaster of enormous proportions, such as Covid-19, this is not enough. Organizations cannot return to the same point they were at before the crisis started. They must change, and fast, if they are to survive and excel in their markets.

In the post-COVID era, companies must reinvent themselves and accelerate their digital activities. Manufacturers, who generally sold their products mostly through stores, have drastically changed their distribution policy. And, in the same way, numerous administrations such as Education, Health or Economy have modernized their way of working and have turned to building a telematic world. Even more “traditional” organizations, such as banks, insurers or health services, have learned to close their facilities and operate in teleworking mode, and have begun to market their services through advanced apps and online services."

"The company believes that companies should opt for price-elastic models, which allow them to have the storage capacity in the quantity and time necessary, combining the best of a pay-as-you-go model and advance purchase plans.

Pay-as-you-go (OpEx) models have emerged as an alternative to advance purchase plans (CapEx), less expensive but not very flexible. However, Infinidat offers a third option, which allows you to combine the best of both.

It is about the adoption of elastic models that allow us to have the necessary capacity. Under the name “Elastic Pricing”, it has designed a new storage capacity acquisition and consumption model that enables customers to acquire storage by combining capital investment (base capacity) and operating expense (temporary additional capacity)."

"Financial uncertainty as a result of the pandemic is already a top concern for most IT managers and business leaders in general.

As markets rebuild and processes are revised for the future, CIOs will need to ensure that the business is continually adapting and evolving. At the same time, they will face significant resource constraints, which apply especially in the field of storage, as it is generally more difficult to relocate than computing resources.

The question, therefore, is: How to deal with this situation? The truth is that there are different tactics, each with its pros and cons ..."

The retail sector has been greatly affected by the COVID-19 crisis. IT teams (internal or external) that support companies in this sector must change the chip to adopt infrastructures that support their workforce (including teleworkers) and make online models work efficiently under any circumstance. There is an increasing demand for storage, protection and access to data, and to grow on demand. With computing already almost completely virtualized (and therefore easily scalable), the bottleneck has now moved to data infrastructures, since these have more physical properties (capacity, read / write operations, etc. .).
