IBM Introduced a New, Fast, Simple Way to Migrate Data to the IBM Cloud

November, 2017

Industry Overview

In the current connected world scenario, both cloud and data centers are deploying high-speed storage and compute solutions, thereby driving the need for Ethernet interfaces. Due to the distributed nature of data centers, networking started across the regions and requires attention on factors such as cloud virtualization, security, disaster recovery, and constraints. Thus, to support the growing capacity needs of the fiber, the need for interconnection increased leading to higher Ethernet interfaces. These solutions need to maintain high-performance level with minimal networking latency.

The data center industry plays an important role in the modern economy providing critical support for infrastructure, creating employment, and generating revenue. Modern data center involves computing and telecommunications equipment comprising of three segments, namely enterprise or in-house data centers, multi-tenant data centers, and hyperscale data centers. These data centers serve a range of segments in the market from small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft.

About New Launched

IBM propelled a physical cloud mass data and information migration service to match competitive similar services offered from Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure. While the physical data and information transfer services varying in scope, the general clients can dispatch and relocate terabytes and petabytes of information to a cloud supplier on disk.

IBM's Cloud Mass Data Migration action is intended to accelerate the time data sets can move to the cloud. Migrating data and informational sets can take weeks or months, contingent upon an organization's access to high-speed bandwidth.

Global Cloud Data Center Market

Cloud data center is a repository, which can be either physical or virtual and is used for management, storage, and transmission of data. It requires minimal maintenance cost when compared to the other servers. They have their own power supply in case of electricity failure. They are cost-effective and require less resource, thereby attracting end-users to use cloud deployment rather than servers.

According to Infoholic Research, the Cloud Data Center market is expected to reach $67.5 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of around 28.7% during the forecast period.
