Today’s data centers are designed to support client/server-based mission-critical applications and technologies. With the next-generation foundation of cloud, mobile, big data and social platforms disrupting industries, businesses must adapt to these changes to take advantage of this disruption.
Align designs solutions with application workloads and new platforms in mind:
- Scale out file and object solutions to meet file and big data requirements.
- Purpose-built AFAs for performance-intense OLTP workloads and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).
- Flash technologies at the compute or storage layer to optimize workloads.
- Converged solutions ease the integration, operation and deployment of multiple technologies into a single system.
- Hyperconverged solutions to take advantage of commodity hardware.
These workloads dictate the optimal architecture and strategy. Align works with you to understand service-level agreements (SLAs), recovery point objectives, recovery time objectives and required data services to ensure the right solution is engineered to meet your application requirements and strategic technology objectives.
