GridBank for Home Directories Overview

Creating Simplicity

As communications infrastructures and technologies have enhanced the flow of information through the world, organizations are becoming increasingly multinational. Globalization is driving significant change in business processes and models, as well as changing how and where data is stored. While this offers opportunities for flexibility and mobility, it also creates challenges. With business operations growing and dispersing in scope and scale, storage and communications infrastructures have become more complex and more interdependent. The Tarmin GridBank Data Management Platform has been designed with business agility and flexibility in mind, providing transformational benefits in simplifying the storage and data management infrastructure, delivering storage optimization, risk control and understanding of information.

GridBank Storage in the Cloud

The growth in storage and infrastructure complexity, alongside rapid growth of data has presaged dramatic growth of information silos, monolithic, poorly connected repositories of data and information. Information silos are more difficult to manage, secure and scale than consolidated virtualized storage pools. Meanwhile, as users become more mobile, connecting with a vast array of smart clients and through numerous devices, data sprawl increases. In order to limit the impact of information silos and highly mobile users, GridBank provides GridSync, a local to cloud synchronization agent for managing data sprawl, virtual desktop infrastructure and home directories to ensure that the right information is available in the right place at the right time. GridSync relies on the GridBank Data Management Platform which delivers hybrid cloud based object storage, global namespace and file system virtualization, alongside replication, archiving, federated search and big analytics, GridBank stores, controls and understands data.
