Domain Expertise

Storage and Computing

The Storage industry landscape continues to evolve at a rapid pace and is driven by some defining trends:

  • Fast storage: Storage is finally able to keep up with CPU speeds through the advent of solid state drives and high speed buses.

  • Software defined storage: Virtual components integrate with physical systems to give way to new services and an altogether new approach to proprietary intelligence.

  • Cloud storage: Users and Enterprises alike expect data storage on-demand. Cloud-based alternatives have evolved rapidly in recent years.

  • Data Analytics: Data analytics can now add an element of value to otherwise largely stacked data giving new insights.
The Agiliad team has been working with Storage industry leaders and has built capabilities that enable us to differentiate our offerings and align ourselves with the evolving Storage landscape.
