All-in-One Small and mid-size companies face unique challenges when it comes to storage… Customer Challenges
Data storage is out of control: growth (MS Exchange), regulatory requirements, and data protection is driving massive data proliferation and storage growth. Servers running out of capacity: companies add more DAS or more servers – easy to do, but is not cost effective and is difficult to manage, grow, and protect. Lack of resources: SMBs have stayed away from network storage because of cost and complexity. SMBs lack storage expertise: Current solutions work at the storage layer but IT managers work at the application layer. SMBs want the guidance of a trusted advisor Customer Challenges The current state of the SMB customer
Clients Exchang e SQL Server Customer Challenges IT works at the application level Application view: Administrators work with their applications and think about Exchange Storage Groups, Databases, File Shares, etc.. File Servers As they grow, servers run out of capacity… Need additional file servers to meet end-user demands…
Clients Customer Challenges Growth options with DAS are limited DAS Issues: Servers proliferate and adding more direct attached storage is inefficient, creating storage ‘islands’ of wasted capacity File Servers Exchang e SQL Server Can be difficult to manage, grow, and protect… JBOD
Clients Customer Challenges Network storage has many benefits… Network storage allows capacity to be shared by multiple servers and can provide enhanced protection, performance, and availability. File Servers Exchang e SQL Server Network Storage However: Many network storage solutions are out of reach for many customers…
Clients Customer Challenges Barriers include cost and complexity Traditionally, network storage technologies can outside of reach for many SMB or branch office customers and can require infrastructure and storage expertise File Servers Exchang e SQL Server Storage View: Virtual arrays, fibre channel, disks, LUNs, stripe sets, targets, initiators, RAID, etc...
