Rethink Virtual Storage


The deluge of data is killing most companies today. CIOs are literally buried by the volume of objects to store and they’re mired in management, compliance, and data governance issues. With data doubling every 18 months, unstructured data like email growing at ten times the rate of structured data, virtual machines growing at double digits with IDC estimating that two thirds (69%) of the datacenter will be virtualized by 2013, and 24/7 operations driving up the cost of migrations to new gear due to end of life replacements, the wheels are coming off the bus. This has caused many companies to put their virtualization initiatives on hold because the thought of more boxes to manage adds complexity; in fact, most companies think what they have is good enough. But, maintaining or improving performance, manageability, application and data integrity – while being cost-conscious – is impossible without the right storage infrastructure.

Flexibility & Choice: Virtualization is the Answer 

Many companies struggle with their storage needs; existing storage coupled with new capacity adds complexity into their data center environments, not to mention the skill sets required to maintain this infrastructure. However most are unaware that there is an easy solution that can satisfy their needs by enabling a true, centralized, heterogeneous storage infrastructure. Companies no longer need to put their virtualization initiatives on hold, especially when they can virtualize existing storage and integrate directly into their infrastructure. This not only provides flexibility but also enables customers to extend the life of their assets, which benefits existing applications. In fact, for several companies, virtualization may actually be the answer to simplifying their storage needs and protecting existing assets.
