New InfiniteIO Hybrid Cloud Storage ROI Calculator Identifies Hidden, Inactive Data to Reduce Enterprise Storage Costs by up to 80 Percent

Free Infinite Insight downloadable app scans millions of files for
cold data and estimates the cost savings of migrating them to private or
public clouds

AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#ROIlt;/agt;–InfiniteIO,
the leader in making hybrid cloud storage simple and fast, today
announced the availability of Infinite Insight, a free app that gives
customers and partners the ability to easily determine cloud tiering
scenarios for inactive (or cold) data that can save them up to 80
percent in storage costs.

The app scans on-premises network-attached storage (NAS) file systems to
identify hidden cold data to migrate to lower-cost cloud storage
solutions. The intuitive tool scans over millions of files and can be
customized to match the financial and operational policies of users.
Infinite Insight simulates policies, based on file size and the last
time they were accessed or modified, that move the inactive files to
lower-cost private or public cloud storage and generates a shareable
report on estimated, yearly cost savings.

“Hybrid cloud approaches for managing active and inactive file data
today require organizations to make tradeoffs in cost, performance and
complexity,” said Kris Meier, vice product management of InfiniteIO.
“The challenge for IT and finance leaders is compounded by finding,
accessing and protecting petabytes of capacity or billions of files at
annual growth rates of 40 to 50 percent. Infinite Insight offers a first
step for organizations to better support data growth and business
transformation by integrating metadata
management solutions
that optimize cost and performance throughout
their hybrid cloud environment, without disrupting their workflows.”

Infinite Insight leverages InfiniteIO’s unique approach to real-time
analytics and metadata management by intelligently locating and
recommending the transfer of inactive data to cloud storage. A
customizable dashboard offers a comprehensive and realistic view of the
user’s real-world file environments. Using Infinite Insight together
with InfiniteIO’s hybrid cloud tiering solutions, customers and partners
can easily implement a cloud strategy that extends the life of existing
NAS systems, helps cloud storage perform as fast as all-flash systems
and makes data always available for critical workflows, without making
changes to existing users, applications or storage.
