With Silk's Data Virtualization Platform
Silk’s virtualization platform sits between the cloud storage infrastructure and cloud databases. Utilizing a shared-compute pool, Silk provides accelerated performance with resource efficiency.

Get the cloud flexibility you want, with all the performance and efficiency your databases need.
“On native cloud, we were seeing a maximum speed of 1.6MB/s. But with Silk on cloud, we saw 400MB/s. That increase in speed really is incredible!”
Turn your databases into cloud powerhouses.
“When we put multiple institutions on a single SQL instillation, we could run much faster and deliver reports 10-20 times faster. Silk saved us speed. Ultimately, I’m talking 30x savings since we were able to eliminate manpower. Plus, our users are much happier since they get their reports days earlier than before. I think everyone was a winner.”
With real-time data reduction, thin-provisioning, and zero-footprint clones, you cut cloud costs.
“We had application performance issues that needed to be solved quickly. Silk did that and gave us fast speed improvement. They also did it at a lower cost, in a smaller footprint, using less energy. The platform includes dedup, compression, and encryption with no performance impact. It’s a complete package that made Silk an easy purchase decision.”
Hop from one cloud to another or from on-prem to the cloud and back again.
“We chose Silk because it supports our data center strategy. We gain tremendous value from Silk’s scalability model. Now we can continue to grow capacity while ensuring consistent sub-1MS latency without ever doing a forklift upgrade. That’s an immense advantage.”
Keep your critical data ridiculously available. How available? Like 99.9999 available.
“Our most notable benefit from Silk is that we have no worries about performance. Add scale-up and scale-out along with capacity and flash guarantees, as well as excellent service. We have peace of mind for the next five years. In IT time, that’s a lot.”
