STRATEGIC STORAGE IMPERATIVES
The explosion of information created by e-business is making storage a strategic investment priority for companies of all sizes. As storage becomes a priority for businesses, two major concerns have emerged: business continuity and business efficiency.
Business continuity requires storage that supports data availability so that employees, customers and trading partners can access data 24/7 through reliable, disaster-tolerant systems. Business efficiency, where storage is concerned, is the need for investment protection, reduced total cost of ownership and high performance and manageability. Storage cannot just be an afterthought anymore. Too much is at stake.
