The Multiple Facets of Data Center Transformation
Data drives the world. One send it, receive it, store it, manage it, process it, protect it and use it. While the words data and information might seem interchangeable, data is in essence the raw input that is processed or arranged to become meaningful output or information. In the modern data center, both input and output are critical to running the business. As expected, storage plays a critical role in data center transformation. How data is stored can either enable or inhibit data center transformation efforts. As the amount of data supporting mission critical applications continues to exponentially multiply and its underlying IT infrastructure ages, the need for a fundamental transformation of the data center is vital.
