File data virtualization with UniFS

File attachment: 
The traditional means to protect fie data by making copies, combined with the need to provide access to shared data from multiple locations, has created an unwanted explosion in copies in an infrastructure already strained by a decade of relentless data growth. Organizations struggling under the combined pressure of fie data growth and an expanding global footprint require a new generation of global fie systems that enable IT to consolidate all copies of data required for protection and access into a single master copy.
File Data Virtualization completely separates data from any hardware dependencies and in doing so elevates the IT conversation from the nuts and bolts of storage (provisioning, backup, DR, etc.) to a strategic discussion about data management: Who needs access to this data? Where do they need it? What level of performance is required? File Data Virtualization is a storage architecture that combines ubiquitous cloud infrastructure with traditionally data center technology. Files are no longer tied to a piece of hardware or location. Data is stored globally in the cloud but available at the local levels of performance dictated by the hardware resources available at each site.
This whitepaper discusses the technical design of file data virtualization as well as its benefits.
