Super-Charge Your NAS Environment

All-flash storage and Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) systems are delivering next-generation levels of performance, simplicity and reliability. Unfortunately, these benefits often elude storage-hungry NAS environments because they’re simply too big.

The key to making your NAS environment appropriate for all-flash configurations is to right-size it.  That means making it small enough to cost-effectively live inside an all-flash footprint.  So, how do you do that without throwing away files that still have business value?  With DefendX, that’s how.

DefendX Mobility is an automated, policy-driven application that archives inactive files to more cost-effective storage tiers or cloud services.  The result is a smaller, all-flash or HCI-friendly active file set that is still seamlessly connected to its archive storage systems.  Now, all of the benefits of an all-flash storage environment can be extended to include your right-sized NAS environment too!
