How Enterprises Can Rise Above Data Gravity for a Better Life in the Cloud

In this contributed article, Jim Liddle, Chief Innovation Officer at Nasuni, describes how having file data stored in the cloud and workloads on-premises can result in serious performance issues because remote access and data consolidation don’t play well together. In fact, the combination can create “data gravity” that complicates and slows the movement of data, worsened by the latency that often accompanies remote access. The resulting lack of speed and flexibility presents significant issues when decisions must be made in seconds in order to prevent potential loss or generate revenue to the tune of millions of dollars.
