Today, Indian enterprises are handling more unstructured data every day due to the influx of cloud-native applications and new-age technologies such as AI, ML, IOT, etc. According to a study, Global Data Protection Index, conducted by Dell Technologies in partnership with Vanson Bourne, India has witnessed an increase in the amount of data managed from 2.79 petabytes (PB) in 2016 to 6.43PB in 2018. Hence, to manage this data explosion, organisations across industries need to look for a storage infrastructure that provides massive scalability, flexibility, efficiency and reduces cost.
Therefore, to help businesses maximize their data capital and business value of their unstructured data, Dell Technologies has upgraded its industry leading Isilon portfolio by making advancements to its OneFS storage operating system – OneFS 8.2.1. Some of the key features of this new update includes:
