Data virtualization is a data integration technology. It incorporates data from numerous formats, sources, and locations, without replicating the information, to form a single ‘virtual’ data layer. The layer provides combined data services to support different users and applications.
Virtual data optimizer is a ready-to-run software package that is designed to add data reduction abilities to the Linux block storage heap. This technology performs aligned at a 4 KB granularity, providing the best possible balance of performance and data reduction rates. Virtual data optimizers utilize data deduplication and inline compression methods to transparently recoil data as it is being written to storage media. Furthermore, in order to reduce the data footprint, virtual data optimizers combine three techniques: data deduplication, zero-block elimination, and data compression. By using these techniques, virtual data optimizers can vividly enhance the productivity for both network bandwidth utilization and storage.
The global virtual data optimizer market is expanding at a rapid pace, mainly due to an increase in demand for cost-efficient data management solutions among enterprises with an aim to manage large amounts of data. Virtual data optimizers enable enterprises to save storage space and reduce cost in terms of solution deployment. This can translate to reduced costs for cloud-based exterior block storage, reduced costs per compute instance, and reduced costs for long-term maintenance of data pictures. Additionally, a rise in the requirement for data deduplication software tools in order to remove duplicate copies of blocks of data that have already been stored is anticipated to boost the demand for virtual data optimizer around the globe.
Rise in demand for cloud-based solutions across major end-use industries, including health care, IT & telecom, and BFSI in order to manage business more efficiently is projected to fuel the market. However, lack of standardization in data optimization processes is likely to hinder the market.
There is an increase in the number of data centers across the world and rise in the adoption of data virtualization solutions in data centers to efficiently manage data. This is primarily because data centers are the major source of generating large amount of data globally. This, in turn, is anticipated to create new opportunities for the growth of the global virtual data optimizer market in the coming years.
