What would IT Leaders do...
If they could redefine IT and choose how data is managed and stored?



Deliver the performance and availability of your storage infrastructure while enjoying cloud economics.

Storage agility is the single most important factor driving private cloud computing today. Organizations must find a way to control the data explosion and associated storage costs while maintaining availability for broad organizational 24/7 demand. While maintaining agility, control, and access businesses must also consider security, power, compliance, and return on investment (ROI) when evaluating their storage infrastructure options.

The key to enjoying cloud economics from your storage infrastructure is to start with a foundation based on performance, proven best practices, and scalability.

Unified storage delivers: pay as you grow sizing with multiple associated billing options, scalability from gigabytes to petabytes, performance and availability, and snapshot and replication options.
