As businesses aim to achieve faster time-to-market and greater customer satisfaction, they look to IT to keep pace by providing a faster, more responsive infrastructure. This challenge is compounded by unrelenting data growth and ongoing pressure on IT budgets. IT leaders recognize that, all too often, storage is the bottleneck in their business. Many of today's storage systems are either all flash - which are fast but are also very expensive - or lack robust data management, effective data protection, and the ability to expand seamlessly. Quantum QXS hybrid storage systems' real-time, automatic, intelligent tiering, Q-Tier, enables all-flash-like performance. The QXS Q-Tools provide easy-to-use storage management capability including thin provisioning and caching. With scalable, customizable configurations, QXS storage enables IT to achieve the perfect blend of flash and disk to meet all their requirements with respect to reliability, performance, and cost.
