Next Meet@Markley: Dell EMC and Markley Group Talk Elastic Cloud Storage

Posted on September 20, 2016 by Chris Kenney

Cloud adoption is continuing to grow at a rapid pace – and it is expected that this trend will continue for the foreseeable future. With growth and expansion of the cloud comes the need for increased cloud storage – storage of your company’s critical data, information and applications. That data and information needs to be secure and available – so employees can access it whenever they need to and so your organization has a strong backup that also meets any compliance regulations you may be subject to.

To be successful, it is critical to know what your options are, what the possible scenarios are you could face – and how other companies have succeeded (or failed) before you decide what’s right for your organization and select a cloud storage solution.

On Thursday, September 29, 2016 at 12 noon, we here at the Markley Group will be hosting a Meet@Markley session that will review some of the issues surrounding cloud storage, share our thoughts on best practices and give an overview of how Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS), powered by DellEMC and Markley Cloud Services, can be the cloud storage solution you need.

ECS, announced earlier this year, is a complete software-defined cloud storage platform that supports the storage, manipulation and analysis of unstructured data on a massive scale on commodity hardware. ECS is specifically designed to support mobile, cloud, big data and social networking applications. It can be deployed as a turnkey storage appliance or as a software product that can be installed on a set of qualified commodity servers and disks.

With ECS, Markley Group customers can easily tier data from on-premise equipment to the cloud, without compromising user experience. Transferring data between physical infrastructure and cloud storage solutions is notoriously expensive – and a cost many organizations don’t fully realize until they’re receiving the bill.

With Markley Group and DellEMC’s ECS solution, storage management for inactive data and offsite protection is simplified, resource consumption is maximized – and you save on costs without having to sacrifice on user experience or business continuity.

Join us at our next Meet@Markley to learn more about our newest offering and the benefits it can bring to your company.

No Charge! Lunch will be provided.
