The Datalifecycle® Company is an independent integrator of data storage and data protection solutions, focused exclusively on data storage and protection for over a decade. We leverage this experience, bringing together innovative hardware & software from a diverse selection of vendors and the open-source world, to deliver storage infrastructure that optimally serves our clients' IT ecosystem.
We strive to use industry-standard components and products to ensure minimal vendor lock-in, and our approach not only helps our customers reduce capital investment and operational expenses, but also reduces the frequency of forced infrastructure upgrades. We also ensure that we are able to support our solutions for a significantly longer duration than is the industry practice.
Our solutions are designed to be scalable for performance, capacity and redundancy, and address every stage in the lifecycle of data: from the conception and design of highly available data- storage infrastructure, to protection & archival, as well as secure disposal of retired and end-of-life data
What is Datalifecycle?
For ease of management and enhanced efficiencies, our solutions for storage consolidation address both conventional and virtual server environments and span direct-attach, network-attach, IP-SAN and FC-SAN architectures, with a wide choice of disk and I/O interfaces (FC, SAS, iSCSI, SATA, SCSI)
Our solutions for fault resilient data access include solutions for no single point of failure using dual or multi node data gateways and path-failover protocols, ensuring uninterrupted data access in the event of software and/or hardware malfunction.
It's easy to oversize a storage system to deliver performance – at a wasteful premium in capital and operational costs. At Datalifecycle, our approach to performance sizing is based on a careful assessment of the application workloads, in order to deliver a solution that is optimally matched to the customer requirement, but with the flexibility to scale-up, as required in the future.
Protection and Archival
The design and implementation of a data protection and archival strategy is a vital, but often neglected component of data storage infrastructures. Our data protection solutions integrate software, disk and tape systems to achieve a layered protection strategy to ensure quick and flexible recovery from different data loss events.
DR solutions are notoriously oversized, especially for medium size infrastructures. Datalifecycle's approach to a disaster recovery solution starts with an analysis and understanding of the RPO and RTO needs of the customer. Whether the proposed solution is a sophisticated replication and failover framework, a simple offsite backup or, as is usually the case, something in between, you can be sure that the solution we propose is the result of a careful assessment of what is appropriate and optimal for the specific recovery objectives of your organisation.
In a globalised economy, secure disposal of end-of-life data is a compliance requirement spanning multiple regulatory bodies, often across different countries. Datalifecycle's® data disposal services and solutions not only ensure permanent and secure disposal of data, but also environmentally responsible post-disposal recycling and and recovery of all components and materials that current technology supports.
