An optimized storage strategy for your cloud data

Not all data can move to the cloud and a majority of enterprise customers have data that can’t be migrated. The global object storage market is expected to continue to grow as more enterprise customers turn towards a hybrid cloud operating model for their digital transformation.

The VMware Cloud Provider Platform offers cloud providers enhanced capabilities to deliver affordable and robust data storage. The solution tightly integrates with industry leaders like Cloudian and Dell-EMC to deliver the underlying object storage. Enterprise customers can use this solution to store videos, images, and other multimedia data with low latency.

As your customers’ data volumes explode, you need to ensure that your cloud is designed to give them control of their data. Help your customers prevent:

  • Incompatible and inefficient data storage
  • Cost-prohibitive cloud storage
  • Data requirements not suitable for public cloud
