The world is progressing towards the cloud-based storage system, and we visibly see a paradigm shift from traditional to cloud storage. There are a number of cloud storage systems out there introduced by many companies.
Google, in collaboration with Dell, has introduced a new cloud-based storage system called Cloud OneFS with the sole goal of speeding up the data transfers on public and private servers. This hybrid cloud storage system is capable of transferring data up to the size of over 50 petabytes across different cloud networks. The idea behind it was to speed up the businesses in the organization by having them connected remotely.
Cloud OneFS is a powerful cloud storage system that improves the performance of cloud-based storage networks by increasing scalability. This is achieved by the collaboration of Dell Technologies scalable systems and Google Cloud analytics.
The transfer of massive data and high-performance computing can be done easily and quickly between the Dell EMC Isilon file systems and Google Cloud without making any amends to their application.
Hybrid Cloud workloads
Most of the company's data is stored in the on-premises data storage system, and very little of their data is accounted to be stored in public cloud networks. This is due to the performance and scaling limitations of many cloud systems. Hence, resulting in tons and tons of data being stored on-site. For example, for a TV or movie streaming service, the video files are present in substantial file sizes at 4K resolutions requiring the availability of storage in terabytes, making it challenging for the production companies to transfer them over the cloud. Cloud OneFS removes this complexity by providing extensive scalability options.
Dell Technologies is also revamping its cloud subscription model in order to expand its roots of node configuration. This will allow many companies to use hybrid cloud services at better prices.
