Manage Rapid NAS Data Growth While Reducing Storage Footprint and Costs (Race)
Enterprise data storage continues to grow -- with roughly a quarter of network-attached storage (NAS) users reporting annual growth rates at more than 60 percent. Controlling storage costs from original data creation until data disposition is a growing challenge for any IT organization. In order to utilize traditional compression on primary storage, you need to have the performance on your primary storage to perform the compression operation and you should consider the following factors when evaluating compression technologies. They include: zero performance degration, high data availability, transparent deployment to existing users/applications, no changes in any existing downstream processes and most importantly savings in capital and operational costs. Click here to learn more on how IBM's Real-time Compression solutions help ensure that there is no negative impact to each of these factors and can save you up to 80% in storage.
