Length:  11 pages

While many sources have investigated the advantages of scale-out storage from a technology perspective, few have taken on this challenge with a focus on economics. This is unfortunate, as a key environmental factor shaping storage decisions today is the turbulent global economy. With recession just behind us, and growth stalled in many sectors, IT executives continue to be asked to do even more with even fewer resources.

Exploring the economic advantages of scale-out storage is the focus of this paper. After briefly defining scale-out storage we discuss, in turn, the capital, operational and strategic advantages of scale-out storage solutions.
