Hybrid storage has become the best option to handle the large amount of data that companies handle. And it is that, in the report ‘The Data Paradox’ reveals that 61% of companies in Spain feel overwhelmed by the amount of information they handle.
Thus, Kingston Technology has highlighted the benefits that hybrid storage brings to companies, combining the use of hard drives (HDD) and the new generation of solid state drives (SSD).
“At Kingston we offer the Ask an Expert service, offering the possibility of having a specialist technician who reviews each case personally, helping our clients choose the best products to achieve a much simpler, cheaper and more efficient transition for their businesses”, explains Jordi García, Kingston’s Iberia Team leader.
For this reason, Kingston wants to highlight the 5 advantages that hybrid storage brings to companies:
- Combine capacity and performance: On the one hand, the data that is used the most on a day-to-day basis and high-performance applications must be housed on SSD devices. This type of storage ensures faster and easier access, leaving them close at hand for when they may be needed. On the other hand, hard drives (HDD) are perfect for files that are used less and usually larger capacity that are archived for the long term. The combined use of HDD and SDD systems allows you to take advantage of the advantages of both formats, creating faster and more extensive systems to support smoother workflows.
Kingston highlights the 5 advantages that hybrid storage brings to companies
- Optimize data access: We can find SSD storage units with impressive write and read speeds, such as the KC3000, capable of reaching 7,000MB/s, offering improvements in terms of reliability to efficiently process the most demanding workloads and experience better performance with software applications, such as 3D scanning and 4K+ content creation.
- Cost savings: Upgrading and expanding part of our systems, whether starting from legacy HDD architectures or expanding system resources exclusively based on SSDs, allows companies to achieve significant financial savings
- Flexible scalability: The combined use of these two platforms allows you to maintain business continuity while progressively upgrading your systems, adding more hard drives or SSDs as needed. By using this type of storage architecture, data accessibility is maintained at all times and guarantees uninterrupted operation of company services.
- Improvement of energy efficiency: Thanks to hybrid storage, we can more efficiently classify and separate the documents in use from the rest of the stored files, allowing storage systems and devices equipped with them to work more efficiently and reducing their consumption.
