Length: 13 pages
In order for organizations to meet rapidly changing business requirements, they are eliminating monolithic legacy data centers and infrastructures and replacing them with consolidated, highly virtualized, flexible environments that reduce costs and increase business responsiveness.
However, because of the limits of traditional network attached storage (NAS) storage systems, IT is still dealing with poor NAS utilization rates, system sprawl, and complex and wasteful file storage infrastructures. Users find themselves coping with five, six, or even seven or more copies of data to perform test and development work and meet service level agreements for data availability and recovery.
This analyst report discusses the technology companies that are leading the way in providing solutions that provide elasticity and efficiency in the storage infrastructure and remove many of the management headaches we’ve come to know, helping users start down the path towards virtual IT.
