Primary Data

Primary Data intelligently automates the flow of data to ensure the right data is in the right place at the right time across enterprise infrastructure and the cloud. Primary Data’s DataSphere platform is a new asset in modern IT architecture that enables petabyte-scale enterprises to achieve unprecedented improvements in performance, efficiency, and scalability. As a storage and vendor-agnostic metadata engine, DataSphere helps IT overcome the inefficiency of traditional compute and storage architectures. By separating the metadata path from the data path, DataSphere uniquely abstracts the logical view of data from physical storage through data virtualization. This allows data to be placed on the most appropriate resource that meets evolving business needs. DataSphere’s high performance architecture gives applications the ability to access data in parallel across multiple storage systems, while policy-based management intelligently places data without application interruption.
