Today's business environment is more challenging than ever before. Global market conditions are subject to rapid change while compliance and regulation issues continue to be more demanding on IT.

Within the data center, new composite applications are driving Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) and Web 2.0 initiatives that require unprecedented levels of information access and sharing - and create almost entirely unpredictable data growth. In an attempt to better control these rapidly changing and growing environments, many organizations have responded by consolidating data centers and infrastructure.
