Advanced Capabilities for SMB
Data has become the new currency of business, their most critical asset. But organizations often spend too much money and time managing where their data is stored. The average firm purchases 24 percent more storage every year1 , but uses less than half of its capacity2 The right infrastructure allows clients to shift spending and invest in projects that improve business results. The infrastructure must ensure the most value from data at the least cost with the least effort and the greatest flexibility. Building an effective infrastructure starts with software-defined storage, which frees data from the physical storage and provides better access to applications. Software-defined storage helps make an infrastructure simple, easy to manage and more responsive to changing business needs.
