Benefits of StrongLink for data migrations

Simplify data management

Files are automatically discovered, classified, tiered & archived based on your policy priorities and use cases.

Connect all files, objects & cloud

All your files are automatically placed on the correct storage type according to their data lifecycle, & immediately accessible to users via a global namespace regardless of location.

Integrates with tape and cloud

Easily integrate and optimize primary storage tiers with cloud and/or tape. Small file optimization available to increase throughput performance.

Single-pane-of-glass management

Gain complete control of files, data movement, policy enforcement, reporting, and auditing across all storage types, including cloud and tape.

No changes to user or application access

Maintain a persistent view of all files across all storage, enabling migration without disruption. Files are saved with the original path and file name.

Automate workflows with metadata

Harvests metadata from file systems, applications, and enables user-created custom metadata tags. StrongLink aggregated metadata drives its policy engines.

Replace forklift upgrade with rolling tech refresh

Add, remove, or replace any storage at any time, making evergreen storage a reality. Automatically migrate data to new storage with little to no user interruption.

End-to-end data protection.

StrongLink gives you the power to make your own decisions.

Eliminate data silos between different storage types

Get global control of your data across any storage type, including cloud and tape, for maximum flexibility and user access.

Design the environment that meets your needs and budget.

StrongLink frees you from vendor lock-in, with multi protocol access to any storage type.

Pick the storage technology for your requirements.

Pick any vendor’s storage types that meets your needs including flash, disk, cloud, and tape.

Use the technology you already own.

You don’t need specialized data preservation or archiving software or proprietary hardware. Get more out of your existing storage resources.

StrongLink is not priced by capacity – it’s priced by performance.

Other systems use capacity-based licensing. This means that with other solutions, as your data volumes grow, so do your costs. We do not think this is fair.

  • Pay only for the amount of performance to match your workflows.
  • Get immediate ROI and predictable pricing over time for easy budgeting.
  • Cost does not increase over time, even when your data volumes inevitably grow.
