The Cloud Journey
Is Data Holding You Back?

Cloud Unknowns

Not easy to test workloads

Data Gravity

Large, immovable data


Workload Mobility

Too difficult to get in and out


Data Policy

Go Cloud Faster…

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

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

PrimaryIO’s Unique Approach

Traditional 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.

PrimaryIO's Approach

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.
