Solving Mass Data Fragmentation

New research reveals expectation gap in public cloud benefits.

What is Mass Data Fragmentation?

Data is an enterprise’s most valuable digital resource. It should be a competitive asset, but instead data has become a costly and risky IT management headache.

Mass data fragmentation is the ever-growing proliferation of data—across different locations, silos, clouds, and management systems—that prevents organizations from fully utilizing its value.

Cohesity has issued a series of global market studies concerning mass data fragmentation and its impact on IT. The first report details the difficulty in managing data across silos. The new report focuses on the public cloud.

Data is Fragmented

IT operations like backup, file sharing/storage, provisioning for test/dev and analytics are in separate infrastructure stacks that don’t share data or resources, with no central visibility or control. Data is fragmented across and within these silos.

Data is Inefficient

Infrastructure silos can impact system and operational efficiency.

With no sharing of data between functions, storage cannot easily be optimized. This leads to the generation of multiple copies that take up unnecessary storage space.

Operational efficiency is compromised by the need to manage and coordinate multiple proprietary systems and UIs, each requiring specialist understanding.

Data is Dark

This rising volume of fragmented data is also dark—making it almost impossible to see what you have and where it's stored.

That can raise serious compliance or security risks, and limit storage optimization.

If you don’t know what it is, and where it’s located, how can you know what data must be kept and what can safely be deleted?
