The New IT Landscape
The need for efficient, reliable, and cost-effective storage solutions has never been greater. Today’s IT departments face competing demands to increase storage capacity, boost performance, and reduce costs per gigabyte.
Additionally, runaway data growth is the new reality. Managing data is an ever-present challenge. As the amount of data users create continues to grow, so does the need for a storage environment that operates at maximum efficiency. With tighter security regulations, records retention, and the need for better storage management, organizations need to get a handle on their storage.
To achieve success, organizations need to be able to capture data, analyze it, process it, extract the valuable knowledge from it, and then make business decisions and deliver results in real time. That is going to be the new IT landscape. Those that can’t respond will fall behind.
Flash Storage and the Modern Storage Environment
A modern storage infrastructure is no longer a luxury. It’s no longer just a competitive advantage. It’s a necessity. If you don’t have a modern infrastructure, you will be competed out of existence. Luckily, the flash technology that enables storage modernization has now reached a price point that enables many organizations to be able to afford it. The cost of flash has come down exponentially in the past few years and it’s going to continue to decline. New forms of flash are emerging and there are also hybrid disk arrays, which can bridge the gap between traditional storage and modern flash as organizations evolve their approach.
