Manage rapid data growth with game-changing cloud storage solutions

One of the big challenges facing IT organizations today is the explosion of demand for storage, which leads to rising costs and increasing management challenges. But cloud computing is a game changer and Microsoft has brought highly available, low-cost storage solutions.

Windows Server 2012 R2 creates highly available storage using only “just a bunch of disks” (JBOD) enclosures and hard disks.  You can reduce the cost of storage dramatically without sacrificing performance. This datasheet has more details about software-defined storage in Windows Server 2012 R2.

Another option for managing rapid data growth is a hybrid cloud approach.  StorSimple hybrid storage arrays are deployed in on-premises datacenters, using Microsoft Azure Storage for low-impact incremental capacity expansion and automated off-site data protection.
