StorageMAP Solves Top Four Areas of Concern for IT Leaders

Datadobi, a global leader in unstructured data management, releases today a report with Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) Global, an IT analyst, research, validation and strategy firm owned by TechTarget, that assesses its StorageMAP solution. The report provides insight into challenges in unstructured data management and highlights how StorageMAP can empower organizations to manage their unstructured data at scale.

More than one in five IT decision-makers say data are their organization’s business, with nearly half (44 percent) of ESG survey respondents reporting that data support the tangible products their business delivers.

With all data growing at a pace of 35 percent annually, and up to 90 percent of all data on an enterprise’s network being unstructured, IT leaders are faced with several challenges including the management, optimization, and automation of data placement on storage tier or media, meeting data security and compliance requirements, and hardware costs. Organizations also are having to manage redundant, obsolete, and trivial (ROT), cold, and aging data on their networks.

StorageMAP, which was made generally available in May 2022, was designed to alleviate these issues and address the top four areas of concern for IT leaders: cost, carbon footprint, business risk, and maximizing the value provided by data.

Built on Datadobi’s vendor-neutral unstructured data mobility engine, StorageMAP stands out from other IT vendors that claim to offer data management solutions because it is a vendor-neutral end-to-end solution that takes the customer from the discovery of the entire data estate, whether on-premises, remote or in the cloud, through organization into logical business priorities, to taking the most appropriate action all in a single user interface.

Unlike backup-based solutions, StorageMAP works on the primary data and is not a point-in-time backup. Additionally, as an out-of-band solution, StorageMAP does not make changes to the existing host-to-storage communication schema or alter the existing storage layer data management schema. Hosts and applications communicate with storage with no impact from StorageMAP.

High-level graphs enable the C-suite to gain an immediate view of its cost and carbon footprint. The IT department or business units can then dig deeper to understand what is driving these costs and carbon emissions to make evidence-based decisions on how to reduce them.

In the report, ESG affirms that organizations can mitigate risks in terms of poor data security, regulatory non-compliance, inefficient operation, and more by deploying StorageMAP to manage unstructured data at scale.
