Presentation Transcript: Changing the Economics of Storage Infrastructure with Virtualization
In these hard economic times, so much information is already out there about how to bring down the costs of storage infrastructures, but none of them describe how the design of a flexible and agile (adaptive) infrastructure actually facilitates these potential savings.
Examine how infrastructures that can't keep up with business strategies and programs can often corrupt business processes and manifest as...
- Overbuying to maximize impact (and minimize frequency) of capital acquisition requestsOver-Allocating to minimize application disruptionBuying only Tier 1 storage platforms and under-utilizingBuying storage systems on a per application basis
Learn how HP's SAN Virtualization Services Platform (SVSP) Delivers a Better Business Outcome
- Simplify storage provisioning, capacity expansion, and data protection across heterogeneous storage systemsEnable seamless cross-system data movement so that IT managers can easily and intelligently migrate or replicate data between storage classes
An Adaptive Storage Infrastructure offers the flexibility to improve/provide common tools and services for disparate storage platforms such as...
