ClearSky Data, Inc. announced the availability of FC connectivity for its service, further allowing enterprises to realize the scale and economics of the cloud with the performance and availability of on-premises storage.
With low latency and highly available FC connectivity, the firm broadens the range of application workloads, such as machine data analytics, that can benefit from the company's fully managed service.
Enterprises are struggling to manage data growth due to the influx of IoT data in today's landscape. Machine data from operational, log and security intelligence applications present an opportunity for insight, but they also require immediate access to the data. The right connectivity for the right company is critical to help manage this information. FC is a preferred storage networking technology for enterprises of all sizes, and those same enterprises are experiencing IoT and machine data growth today. Delivering high-performance, low-latency access to machine data brings the benefits of the cloud to fast-growing data, which traditionally sits in on-premises storage arrays, creating management headaches and storage costs.
