Data growth has exploded driving increasing demands and expectations on an organization's IT infrastructure. To compete in today's global marketplace, organizations are faced with new challenges to store, protect and best leverage the value of their data. IT managers are charged with managing the data with fewer resources, increased demands on time, performance and capacity. Consolidation reduces points of management across the three parts of a storage network; network, servers and storage. With fewer points of management, system administrators require less training and are able to manage more resources. Storage consolidation offers organizations a sophisticated solution to reduce management and system complexity, improve efficiency, easily grow capacity and reduce overall system costs.
