PrimaryIO’s Hybrid Cloud Data Management

Faster Migration | Workload Mobility | Data Control


The Cloud Journey: Is Data Holding You Back?

Go Cloud Faster…

Hybrid Cloud Data Management (HDM)
A data-centric approach for Cloud Mobility

Hybrid Cloud Data Management

PrimaryIO’s Unique Approach

Today moving to the cloud is a one-way journey, and needs full data replication. But with a traditional approach losing data control is a big problem.

HDM has built-in smarts to identify frequently accessed data (hot data) to get workloads up and running quickly in the cloud with rollback option.

How HDM Works?

1. Analyze

  • Transparent to applications
  • Identify frequently accessed data (hot data)
  • Provides recommendations

2. Flex

  • Only moves hot data securely to the cloud
  • Data movement policy control
  • Rollback at will

3. Cache

  • Intelligent cloud caching
  • Minimized data footprint on cloud
  • Policy based sync to persistent datastore
