Lumen Technologies has launched Data Access Accelerator, a managed service that runs on the Lumen Platform, to help businesses access and leverage greater amounts of data. Lumen’s solution will allow unstructured, file-based data to be acquired and processed from different locations.
"With Lumen Data Access Accelerator, we give organizations access to their data across secure networks, so files stored thousands of miles away load as if they were stored locally,” said David Shacochis, vice president of enterprise technology and field CTO for Lumen Technologies.
Lumen’s Data Access Accelerator will improve productivity with near real-time file access, enabling businesses to gain further insights from their data. The solution has also featured an adaptable infrastructure that can adjust to changing business needs, minimizing reliance on IT to build new infrastructure for data storage and transfer.
"Business success today means being able to acquire, analyze and act on data anywhere, from the cloud to the distributed network edge… This solution helps them take advantage of the data-intensive applications of the 4th Industrial Revolution and can be used in combination with the Lumen global edge compute platform," Shacochis added.
Lumen’s Data Access Accelerator will strengthen data integrity and security from executing on files at the point of origin, and will advance competitiveness by obtaining value from data faster. The offering also features a simplified data management lifecycle, fully managed and monitored by Lumen.
"Lumen's new Data Access Accelerator will streamline and speed the flow of this unstructured data, allowing users and machines to access it as if it were local. As a fully managed service, Lumen Data Access Accelerator simplifies data management, enabling organizations to maximize the value of their data," said Lynda Stadtmueller, research vice president, network, data center & cloud, Frost & Sullivan.
