The majority of IT storage systems today are not flexible and complicated. Storage costs continue to increase as the storage capacity, and labor and management expenditures constantly spiral upward. By using F5 intelligent file virtualization, you can condense data management and cut down your costs resulting in the simplification of your storage system.
F5 storage solutions include capacity balancing, storage tiering and data migration.
- Capacity balancing distributes the application load and bandwidth across several filing systems and physical storage equipment simplifying your storage system and increasing efficiency.
- Storage tiering values your data and organizes it accordingly. Critical data is placed in the correct storage units, and non-critical data is stored using cheaper alternatives. This reduces backup costs and shortens storage management.
- Data migration is the act of transferring data among storage systems. Data migration allows file-based data migration, which occurs automatically, online and without downtime.
