Managing the ever growing demand for storage is a challenge for most businesses, and is an area where poor planning and implementation can bring significantly elevated capital and operating costs and an inability of the business to respond quickly to market needs or demand. A correctly designed, implemented and managed storage architecture can provide many business benefits including; higher systems availability, easier growth, greater agility, reduced administration time, better capacity management and reporting and, simplified backup.
