Intelligent Data Management for SMBs
Data has become increasingly valuable as both a business asset and as a competitive differentiator. Its intrinsic value is being acknowledged in the form of stricter government, industry, and company standards for protecting and preserving it. As a result, organizations are generating and keeping more data than ever before, and every sign indicates that data growth will only accelerate in the future. Dell's vision is to simplify IT with products, services, and partnerships that make it easy and affordable for SMBs to manage and leverage their information from creation to end of life. This approach is called Intelligent Data Management (IDM). IDM changes the economics of information by reducing cost and complexity while protecting data and making it available in ways that make sense throughout its lifecycle. Part of IDM strategy is a new line of the TierDisk family of products to help SMB customers gain control of their data while reducing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). The first of these products is PowerVault DL2000 integrated disk-based backup solution. Future products, including recently announced data deduplication solutions with Quantum and EMC, supports the goals of IDM to help IT organizations reduce cost and complexity while giving them more intelligent products to manage their data.
