Bringing an End to Storage Waste

Type:  White Paper
Length:  8 pages

Server virtualization is now viewed as a key initiative as it simultaneously addresses crowded data center floors, inefficient and underused equipment and electricity bills that consume as much as 90% of the IT budget in some organizations. But an area that organizations are overlooking is the new storage waste that server virtualization is inadvertently creating. High SAN attach rates of virtual servers are resulting in the introduction of purpose-built storage systems that introduce the inefficiencies and waste associated with these systems. This paper will examine: The 5 ways storage waste is persisting and growing in the midst of Green IT initiatives; Why the purpose-built storage systems that many organizations know best are the wrong solution; How the design and features found in modular storage systems deliver the new storage efficiencies, support the application requirements and meet the time and budget constraints that organizations now face; Why modular storage systems are ready for production deployments.
