Driven by the need to remain competitive and differentiate themselves, organizations are undergoing digital transformations and becoming increasingly data driven, constantly looking for ways to harness the value of their data to enable smarter decision making or to create better user experiences. In response, organizations are migrating from legacy, monolithic relational databases to highly distributed NoSQL databases for their business-critical applications. Data generated by these applications needs to be protected to ensure it is always available. Additionally, these same organizations have become dependent upon a mix of private and public clouds for hosting their applications. To leverage the full benefits of the cloud, organizations need seamless data portability and mobility.
