Google Cloud and Dell Technologies have launched Dell Technologies Cloud OneFS for Google Cloud. This hybrid storage solution would help organizations control exponential data and application growth and ease the flow of files across their private clouds and Google Cloud.
Dell Technologies and Google Cloud team up to offer simplified management of private and public cloud storage.
OneFS for Google Cloud would deliver a native cloud experience that combines the scalability and performance of scale-out network-attached storage from Dell Technologies with Google Cloud’s analytics and compute services. Now, companies can “easily” move and access high performance computing and demanding workloads, as large as 50 petabytes, in a single filesystem between on-premises Dell EMC Isilon filesystems and Google Cloud without having to make changes or adjustments to their applications.
“Data and workloads exist everywhere – at the edge, in core data centers and public clouds. And, while data and apps are multiplying, IT resources and budgets are not,” said Deepak Patil, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Platforms & Solutions, Dell Technologies. “For companies to turn their data into competitive differentiators, they need a way to manage it seamlessly and consistently, no matter where it resides. Dell Technologies Cloud brings the best of the public cloud to the data center and the best of the data center to the public cloud, removing complexity so companies can spend less time managing their infrastructure and more time delivering value to their customers.”
While file data often accounts for at least half of an organization’s on-premises data, very little of it is stored in public clouds, primarily due to performance and scale limitations, according to a recent report from Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG).
Take the media and entertainment industry, for example. Video files with 4K resolution demand terabytes of storage and require high throughput and low latency file storage, which would make it challenging for production companies to manage large file workloads in public clouds. But, now with OneFS for Google Cloud, they can “easily” work across private and public clouds with “consistent” operations and have the flexibility to scale as needed.
“We’re proud to partner with Dell Technologies to deliver high-performance, scalable cloud storage services to our customers with OneFS for Google Cloud,” said Rich Sanzi, vice president of Engineering at Google Cloud. “Through this partnership, customers can more quickly and effectively leverage Dell Technologies storage solutions through Google Cloud and have access to the best of breed file storage solutions, across hybrid cloud environments.”
