StorageX is a multi-faceted file storage management software solution that speeds the transition to advanced hardware and new technologies by up to 50% when compared with manual processes. The StorageX solution increases unstructured file data mobility and mitigates risk during migrations by automating processes prone to human error. StorageX 7.0 leverages patented technology that integrates discovery, a policy-based rules engine, and CIFS and NFS data movers to limit business disruptions caused by storage migrations. StorageX also uses a project-based approach to ensure that all CIFS shares, NFS exports, security permissions, and file attributes are migrated correctly.
The Data Dynamics StorageX platform is the engine behind Data Dynamics storage infrastructure management, unstructured file data management, and private cloud data management solutions. StorageX is an out-of-band, software-based storage management platform designed for enterprise file lifecycle management. StorageX simplifies the migration, consolidation, and archiving of file data in large, complex, multi-vendor file storage environments. The software centralizes the management of network file storage environments and streamlines workflows when adding, consolidating, or refreshing Network Attached Storage (NAS) and Windows storage.
Storage professionals struggle to cost-effectively manage their existing structure. Past experience with prior migrations that took too long, cost too much, and worst of all, caused outages, means that many CIOs and storage teams are hesitant to migrate to advanced hardware and new technologies. Business units also fear disruption, said Piyush Mehta, CEO, Data Dynamics, Inc. StorageX 7.0 helps alleviate migration risks and control migration costs through the use of migration project automation and policy-based data movement. This approach reduces cutover windows, helps storage teams restructure and optimize their file data during tech refresh cycles, reduces overall project timelines, and helps avoid costly outages and roll-backs.
Pricing and Availability
StorageX version 7.0 is available immediately and priced starting at $500 per migrated TB.
