DDN | DataDirect Networks

Traditional storage architectures which are designed and optimized for IOPS-centric database-driven applications fall short in these extreme environments. DDN's purpose-built S2A is a recognized revolutionary storage architecture that provides the data infrastructure backbone for today's most successful content-intensive organizations and their extreme storage environments.


Unstructured data now makes up 85% of all data being created today--this is a different type of data than conventional, general purpose storage vendors are accustomed to addressing.  The explosion of unstructured data has created a new set of performance and capacity requirements. Relying on conventional storage systems, that were designed specifically for small file database applications, to provide bandwidth performance or manage large capacities forces users to purchase multiple systems, creating isolated islands of storage, unnecessary cost, complexity and risk


Overcoming traditional storage roadblocks, DDN's Extreme Storage unleashes new capabilities to scale, deliver information and more powerfully serve your customers while reducing systems, floor space, power, and administration. S2A is the storage platform of choice where the reality of budget constraints and limited resources no longer conflict with your ability to meet challenging SLAs, QoS metrics, and capacity growth. Over 400 broadcasters and post-production facilities worldwide as well as 48 of the top 100 supercomputers in the world are already gaining the benefits of the S2A Extreme Storage platform.
