If you could do something better than you do it today, would you?
Today’s data-driven enterprises are required to transform and think cloud first when it comes to apps and infrastructure. But, most agree that the promise of cloud economics and infinite scalability is still unrealized for critical workloads.
Thus continues the endless cycle of data and storage management. More boxes, more gear, more networking, more space, more people and more investment. It’s become impossible to keep up.
Thankfully, those days are now over.
Today, companies can free themselves from the pain of managing storage and start accessing the data that’s so critical to their business. And, they can do it with a fully managed service that spans the entire data lifecycle of primary, backup and disaster recovery. It’s time to transform into the true hybrid cloud environment many companies today are aspiring to, but are unable to achieve.
The CIO of a large healthcare provider has a strategic imperative to move to the cloud. However, the reality of making this dramatic transformation for a highly regulated business is a challenge. The company needs to find a solution that meets its high standards and allows them to maintain the tight control inherent to its existing on-premises environment.
The CIO realized that ClearSky’s secure model for primary storage as a managed service offered his company a real option to transform. ClearSky delivers the best of the cloud’s benefits, while fully protecting sensitive and critical data.
The ClearSky service empowers this provider to:
- Lower high IT costs across the organization
- Leverage the cloud for scalability and economics
- Meet low latency requirements of their apps, including high-performance Splunk workloads
- Accomplish these goals without compromising the integrity of the data or the team’s productivity
So, back to the question I posed at the opening of this blog: If you could do something better than you do it today, would you? This healthcare provider is, and you can too.
