About Silk Cloud Data Platform

If you're running mission-critical databases in the cloud, then you need Silk!

The Silk Platform is a web-based cloud data management solution. It's a software layer that sits between your cloud infrastructure and large, complex databases (like Oracle, SQL Server, and Epic) to ensure fast performance, high resiliency, and cost-efficiency for databases on the cloud - without a changing a thing about your underlying applications or infrastructure.

Silk delivers the fast performance of on-prem, but in the cloud, with proven performance of over 1 million IOPS, 20 GB/S throughput, and consistent sub-millisecond latency.

Enterprise data services include real-time data reduction (deduplication, zero elimination, and data compression), thin provisioning, and zero-footprint clones.

Silk Clarity uses powerful machine-learning analytics to show you exactly what you’re paying for and where you can save the most.

Silk’s Flex Dashboard gives you complete control of every cloud detail, and makes scaling up or down as simple as drag and drop.

Dramatically increased performance at a lower cost

Reviewed on 18/09/2020

We were an early adopter of this technology, and have continued to be impressed by the solution. When we first purchased, we were primarily looking for a cost-effective, high-performance SAN for our private cloud. But, Silk continually added capability, and has anticipated our need to move to a hybrid public/private cloud architecture. The new features should help enable a more seamless transition, while keeping our public cloud storage costs in check.

Pros

Our application had a voracious appetite for IOPs, and Silk provided a cost-effective solution to satisfy those needs. Now that we are moving towards a hybrid cloud infrastructure, Silk is providing a path forward that should minimize changes to our storage environment, and allow the team to manage data through a common interface that they are already familiar with.

Cons

The only con is not really for Silk, but more related to the fact that our technology stack was fairly unique and outdated -- this created challenges generally as we went through a hybrid cloud transformation.

Response from Silk

Thanks for your review, Chris. We're glad that the Silk Cloud Data Platform was able to help your company significantly improve performance, at a lower price point, during your transformation to the hybrid cloud. We are also thrilled that you have found our Customer Success team to be a valuable partner to you during this transformation. We look forward to continuing to work with you!

Silk Cloud Data Platform - not just for the industry

Reviewed on 01/09/2020

Pros

The ease of use, ease of integration, versatility of the end-user, it does what it is supposed to do - very well, less time spent on spending money for more time in the cloud.

Cons

It does not make coffee or deliver my paper in the morning.

Response from Silk

Hi Aaron,

Silk Platform really makes our day to day with our SAN so much easier!

Reviewed on 10/09/2020

Pros

The ease of seeing all of our devices in one, easy dashboard. In the past, I had to login to the GUI on each of our SAN devices which became quite cumbersome. The capacity planning and visibility into our throughput are the items I really like

Cons

It may be a little busy. I believe I can customize the default views, but I have not done that as yet.

Response from Silk

Hi Jason, Thank you for your review. We're happy to hear that the ease of use and visibility into your infrastructure is helping to improve your day-to-day.
