Data Fabrics Inc., based in Minnesota, USA, provides a comprehensive range of affordable, Ethernet based (open ATA over Ethernet or AoE protocol), Storage Area Network (SAN) appliances. These are suitable for use within corporate offices, data centers, systems integration departments, software development organizations, small businesses or home environments – almost any workplace where fast, simple, scalable data storage is required.
We seek out high-end, enterprise-grade technologies and concepts to re-purpose them to fit the needs of smaller companies operating with modest budgets and limited, in-house IT staff. Good quality data storage and management systems are important for anyone charged with maintaining large data volumes, whether they are at home or at work at a leading Fortune 500 firm. The speed and safety benefits of private SANs and virtualization can be ubiquitous and inexpensive because the power of commodity cloud computing may be harnessed and leveraged without giving up control of your own data. We recognize that in-house, private clouds and SANs are easier to control and audit than outsourced arrangements.
The task of entrusting third parties with your data is often difficult to regulate and introduces greater complexity when trying to meet various compliance standards. However, we also acknowledge that the public cloud is here to stay since services like webmail are considered essential by many businesses. For some, the flexibility of the public cloud outweighs the inherent risks and this scenario may be acceptable once these risks and their collective scope have been identified.
Data Fabrics currently operates under the trade name – Tangible Storage.
