The Cost of Maintaining the Storage Network Status Quo
The traditional approach to upgrades is incremental as new servers or storage are added to the data center environment – but with this “slow-roll” upgrade, the potential of the compute processing power and storage I/O are never realized. That means dense compute and storage environments cannot be built, requiring extra physical hosts, additional separate storage systems, and yes, money.
This white paper pinpoints 2 major costs that arise through this storage network status quo – the cost of incrementalism, and the cost of workarounds. Read on to explore the implications of “slow-roll” upgrades, and how your organization can conquer the challenges posed by the status quo.
