• Integrated Copy Data Management (ICDM)

    • Integrated Enterprise Copy Data Management enables the consolidation of primary data and associated copies on the same scale-out all-flash array for high-performance, efficient and instant application copies. iCDM provides:

      • Allow consolidation of production copies with non-production copies on a single platform without impact on SLAs
      • Bullet-proof, consistent IOPS and latency, and the ability to scale out more performance as needed
      • Allows instant creation of high performance copies of any data set, in nearly any quantity, space- efficient, with full data services with no impact on SLAs
      • Application integration and automation into rich application workflows
      • Ability of application, database and development owners to self-serve manage the generation and provisioning of copies

      By providing efficient high-performance copies, iCDM can accelerate Test/Dev cycles and shortening your development cycle with higher quality, improve productivity and reduce risk by having improved operation and enable quick local recovery.

    • How does Integrated Copy Data Management work?

      Integrated enterprise copy data management enables consolidation of both primary data and associated copies on the same scale-out all-flash array.

      The following components are required to enable iCDM capabilities:

      • Virtual Copy technology to allow instant creation of high performance copies of any data set, in nearly any quantity, space- efficient, with full data services and with no impact on prod SLAs
      • Application integration & automation into rich application workflows that enable copies to be immediately useable and functional
      • The ability of application, database and development owners to self-service manage the generation and provisioning of copies

      What are the benefits of Integrated Copy Data Management?

      • Provide you an effective, scalable and inexpensive option for consolidating copy services for all data center needs
      • Boost the organization agility to transform customers’ business processes, operations, and infrastructure.
      • Ease of operation by providing application integration and orchestration to provide with self-service capacities
      • Accelerated testing and development cycles with improved productivity and better quality
      • Reduce operational risks by running operations on production on-par copies, enabling simulations, for pre-production testing or test of the latest patches
      • Better decision making, as multiple copies of production data can be extracted and pushed to all downstream analytics, business intelligent applications, on-demand.

      Why should I consider Integrated Copy Data Management?

      Integrated Copy Data Management enables rich application workflows making a development copy, instantly refreshing it to the latest prod data, pushing the dev copy to QA, pushing the QA copy to a scalability test bed, and rolling the output back into prod.  

      For analytics processes, production data can be extracted and pushed to all downstream analytics applications on-demand.

      For operations, copies from production can be made when needed to pre-production testing, run simulations or test the latest patches. iCDM operations do not affect other copies or risk their SLAs.

      • iCDM enables copies that are:
      • Space efficient
      • High performance
      • Instant to create, refresh, delete or recover
      • Nearly unlimited
      • Managed through a flexible, integrated application workflow
