In today's constantly fluctuating global economy, and with a national recession in the not-too-distant past, IT managers are under great pressure to accomplish more with significantly fewer resources. This has impacted storage decisions in a major way.
Scale-out storage technologies are quickly increasing in popularity as companies struggle with capacity and capabilities issues - but scale-out storage is generally approached from an IT standpoint and not with a focus on economics, despite today's budgetary and financial concerns.
This white paper explores the economic advantages of scale-out storage and delves into the capital, operational and strategic advantages your company can gain from scale-out solutions. Read on for a comprehensive definition of scale-out storage, insight into how scale-out delivers benefits relative to traditional NAS and much more.
