For businesses around the world, data volume is growing exponentially. Each day, companies gather and store more information to meet business and regulatory requirements. It all adds up to exploding data growth - and persistent storage problems. For most businesses, this legacy IT strategy is not only costly, it's unsustainable. Clearly, a new approach is needed. That new approach is storage virtualization. Storage virtualization allows meeting the challenge of exponential data growth in a manner that reduces operational costs, improves efficiency, gives an expanded choice of hardware vendors and extends the life of existing storage assets.
