Enterprise Storage

Enterprise applications demand the full attention of IT. Any disruption is unpleasant, including disruptions for periodic reconfiguration of storage systems due to requests for higher performance or capacity expansion.

Since business operations can be negatively affected whenever enterprise applications require infrastructure changes, the infrastructure must be designed to operate dynamically, without interruption. At the storage layer, this requires the following capabilities:-

  1. The ability to seamlessly expand storage capacity
  2. The ability to seamlessly migrate application data between performance tiers
  3. The ability to provide Quality of Services (QoS) throttling
  4. The ability to perform a tech refresh of storage controllers on-the-fly
  5. The ability to incorporate faster storage protocols as they become available
  6. The storage landscape is trending towards flash centric. Integration with Virtualization along with the functionality of deduplication, Thin provisioning makes the storage efficient. Also the storage plat form with cloud readiness and encryption will help to address the storage security need for today’s business

Rich software suites deliver the highest levels of application availability and data protection with continuous operations and any-point-in-time recovery. Integration with industry leading data security solutions further enhances the security of stored file data, while data-at-rest encryption provides physical protection.

MDSSI has skilled pre-sales and post-sales certified storage consultants who can understand your business needs, design and implement the solution along with the relevant data migration.


Cloud Storage

Cloud data storage systems organization to take more projects, perform more in-depth research, and serve up more data. Companies need only pay for the storage they actually use, typically an average of consumption during a month.

They provide tools to dramatically increase workflow productivity and maximize the value of enterprise applications and Big Data assets, allowing business acceleration through faster time to market and new revenue opportunities.

Cloud storage provides users with immediate access to a broad range of resources and applications hosted in the infrastructure of another organization via a web service interface.

Cloud storage can be used for copying virtual machine images from the cloud to on-premises locations or to import a virtual machine image from an on-premises location to the cloud image library. In addition, cloud storage can be used to move virtual machine images between user accounts or between data centers.

Cloud storage can be used as natural disaster proof backup, as normally there are 2 or 3 different backup servers located in different places around the globe.

Meeting regulatory compliance and corporate governance requirements s essential for most organizations today. Cloud data storage systems help address these needs by providing flexible security options, including auditing and Data at Rest Encryption. They also provide secure role separation between storage administration and system access, as well as the ability to create secure, isolated storage pools for specific departments within the enterprise.

MDSSI has rich experience in providing cloud storage solutions. MDSSI provides consultancy services for Cloud Solutions. By Understanding the business requirement MDSSI can architect and design the cloud storage solutions. MDSSI will be able to help the customers for "Journey To Cloud" and to achieve strong cloud based infrastructure.


Cloud Solutions

Hybrid Cloud infrastructure is a need for most enterprises today. Hybrid cloud provides the foundation for a cost-effective and successful digital transformation.

Today's most innovative organizations are enthusiastic adopters of hybrid cloud. According to an IDG report,companies with significant workloads in hybrid cloud have been able to implement digital transformation initiatives faster and cheaper.

IT departments need to deliver the required IT services to different lines of business. Some require traditional IT services while others need fast, agile development environments. Provide the IT services you need with the appropriate delivery model.

IT organizations want Speed, Simplicity, Flexibility and Agility but at the same time need Trust, Visibility and Reliability. Therefore Cloud solutions must deliver a mix of operational ease and financial viability that can improve Return of Investment and improve business processes. They need to “cross-breed” the economics, flexibility, and self-service ease-of-use inherent in cloud-style computing with the more traditionally data-center associated attributes of immensely trustworthy IT and rock-solid mission-critical suitability.

However building this hybrid cloud infrastructure is not easy, as the new infrastructure must also offer choice and control. The easiest and best way to do this is to work with an expert. Expertise makes all the difference when venturing into uncharted territory. MDS SI can help you to build a VMWare, Microsoft based hybrid cloud in less than a month.


Software Defined Storage

Storage infrastructure that is managed and automated by intelligent software as opposed to by the storage hardware itself. In this way, the pooled storage infrastructure resources in a software-defined storage (SDS) environment can be automatically and efficiently allocated to match the application needs of an enterprise.

By separating the storage hardware from the software that manages the storage infrastructure, software-defined storage enables enterprises to purchase heterogeneous storage hardware without having to worry as much about issues such as interoperability, under- or over-utilization of specific storage resources, and manual oversight of storage resources.

The software that enables a software-defined storage environment can provide functionality such as deduplication, replication, thin provisioning, snapshots and other backup and restore capabilities across a wide range of server hardware components. The key benefits of software-defined storage over traditional storage are increased flexibility, automated management and cost efficiency.

MDSSI provides consultancy services for Software Defined Storage. MDSSI has rich experience in Software Defined Storage Implementation and Support.


Data Protection and Backup

Data protection is an organization’s strategy for preserving and retrieving critical data residing in an array of distributed storage systems, servers, desktops, and laptops.

Enterprises today need a holistic Data Protection Strategy that is optimized for virtually any workload, whether physical, virtual, arrays, or big data, to deliver truly flexible target storage options, whether tape, 3rd party disk, appliances, and Integrated Backup Appliances, or even the cloud.

At a minimum Enterprise-class Data protection solutions must be Comprehensive and able to protect all of data assets, providing support for virtually every popular server, storage, hypervisor, database and application platform used in the enterprise today; along with being Scalable and provide High performance, elastic automation, and centralized management based on a flexible, multi-tier architecture enabling adaptation to the growing needs of a fast-paced, modern enterprise datacenter while integrating with traditional disk, backup appliances to big data platforms, and with every point in the technology stack to improve reliability and performance.

Data Backup is the last line of defense for data, the minimal requirement, but simply copying data from its source to tape or disk does not constitute best practice or guarantee its recoverability.

MDSSI has rich experience in providing Data Protection Solutions based on the customer environment, defining data protection policies, provide consultancy with the right products, design and implement data protection strategy to Organization.


Data Archiving

Data archiving is the process of moving data that is no longer actively used to a separate storage device for long-term retention. Archive data consists of older data that is still important to the organization and may be needed for future reference, as well as data that must be retained for regulatory compliance.

The Information Age has brought a radical change in how information is created, distributed and used across organization. There is huge data growth and most of the data are not accessed for longer period. Solutions related to e-Discovery, compliance help to identify, search and help to provide the compliancy, Governance of the data.

MDSSI has rich experience in providing Data Protection Solutions based on the customer environment, defining data protection policies, provide consultancy with the right products, design and implement data protection strategy to Organization.


Disaster Recovery

Disaster recovery (DR) involves a set of policies and procedures to enable the recovery or continuation of vital technology infrastructure and systems following a natural or human-induced disaster.

With IT applications driving Businesses, Availability of IT services has a major correlation to Business uptimes. The need of the hour is to Architect and automate your IT Business Continuity Plan by Service Level Agreements (SLAs) across numerous platforms and operating systems – physical, virtual, and cloud – with high availability, disaster recovery, and data protection solutions.

There is no one solution for IT Service Availability as every business has its own unique requirements, thus the need for experts. MDSSI has a team of experts that can help you recover from disasters.
