Storage Solutions: One Size Does Not Fit All
Bedrock’s engineering authorities understand that storage needs are diverse and constantly changing. That is why the one size fits all approach is often not the best case. Bedrock crafts a storage solution by carefully examining all the business and technical requirements.
Performance and Capacity
Although disk drives are getting larger in capacity and the cost per terabyte is decreasing, operations are still facing performance challenges. The simple fact is that breakthroughs in capacity don’t always manifest themselves as breakthroughs in performance.
To make sure that customers’ environments are properly matched, Bedrock offers storage solutions that can meet both the capacity and performance requirements of the customer. Bedrock offers dense and inexpensive capacity-based solutions for applications that require low latency, block access and high availability. Bedrock also offers high-end SAN and scale-out NAS solutions that can meet the demands of the most intense data-driven applications.
Data Protection is possibly the most critical part of your storage infrastructure. Being able to reliably protect the data in an offsite location or on different media is often the last line of defense against unforeseen catastrophes. But it’s not enough to get data to a protected site. It needs to be in a position where it can be recovered rapidly. In addition to recovery, retention requirements could also be part of the mix as regulation and intelligent business practices demand that some data be made available in a “nearline” form for several years. Bedrock offers many products to help achieve this goal. From snapshots of the storage and replication, to backup software and media, Bedrock has tremendous experience in crafting the most optimal data protection solution for your environment.
One of the best investments any storage decision maker can undertake is getting an assessment of their storage infrastructure and data. The information produced by the assessment can be used to identify improper data placement, performance bottlenecks and spot data protection exposures. Bedrock provides storage assessment services that inform customers about the characteristics of their storage environment. Using Bedrock tools and methodologies, Bedrock’s team can gather information that has the potential to save costs, save data and improve performance.
eDiscovery / Compliance
Bedrock is a leading reseller in the eDiscovery and Compliance space. Representing some of the best technologies and services available, Bedrock can identify and deliver on the right eDiscovery solution for you. Bedrock understands the seriousness and increasing criticality of litigation and can communicate with legal teams as well as technology teams to make sure the deployment is a success
The next revolution in storage is here. It’s called Cloud Storage. Hosted offsite, but with access times that emulate your local Data Center, Cloud Storage has the potential to provide on-demand storage instantly. Order a 100TB Big Iron Box from a vendor and you will be lucky to write files to it in a month. With Cloud Storage, you can have 100TB and beyond… instantly. Advances in technology have improved performance as well as security, overcoming many common concerns.
Storage consolidation is a timeless concept with innumerable benefits. It reduces cost, management complexity and has the potential to vastly improve utilization. Many vendors have trade up and incentive programs to get customers to consolidate onto more robust platforms. Bedrock has significant experience in identifying the right conditions for consolidation and determining the return on investment for doing so.
