Improving Efficiency with a Tiered Archive Approach
Solutions that tap into the Internet of Things (IoT) often generate a rush of data from thousands of remote devices. To harness the true power of IoT, companies must access the knowledge hidden within that mass of data. However, dynamic growth in IoT technology makes it difficult to find a flexible, efficient, and cost-effective archival solution that can deliver results now and in the future.
The true power of IoT doesn’t come from capturing remote data—it comes from understanding the data. That analysis is where IoT can generate a hidden cost. NetApp needed a more powerful way to both store and analyze its IoT data to make sure that the data is always available.
NetApp expanded its one-tier system by adding an archive tier for “cold” data and a more responsive tier for “hot” data. The solution’s scripts automatically migrate older data, keeping the most current data easily accessible. Any data up to six months old is considered “hot,” and is managed on NetApp All-Flash FAS, which can store 320TB and is optimized for performance and efficiency. Warm data (6 to 12 months) is housed on NetApp E-Series hybrid flash storage and NetApp AFF storage devices, which form a data lake that can store 1.3PB, and are optimized for performance and cost savings. Anything older than this, “cold” data, is moved to a NetApp StorageGRID® solution, which can archive hundreds of petabytes across multiple sites, and is optimized for cost savings and simplicity.
NetApp is the data authority for hybrid cloud. We provide a full range of hybrid cloud data services that simplify management of applications and data across cloud and on-premises environments to accelerate digital transformation.
