More Data - New Requirements
The move from centralized data stores on mainframe systems to distributed systems spanning the globe has increased the costs and complexity of storing busienss data and making it available to authorized users - when and where they need it. In addition, lawsuits and new government data retention regulations such as Sorbannes-Oxley and HIPPA are driving up storage requirements and demanding more comprehensive data protection.
SAN and NAS technology have proven their ability to help alleviate the financial pain associated with acquiring and managing increased storage capacity. The concept of a centralized shared pool of disks providing shared storage capacity to all of their servers is certainly attractive. The benefits of a SAN are certainly easy to see: local disk access speeds, reduced hardware investments, dynamic storage allocation, simplified storage management, advanced data protection and streamlined data backup. However, for many companies, the cost and complexity of a typical Fibre Channel SAN technology makes them unfeasible. It frequently requires new expertise and training for current IT staff as well as a substantial financial commitment beyond the scope of many businesses. IPI has partnered with three companies to deliver cost-effective, high-performance solutions for Data Storage and Management: StorageCraft, Cloudian and Aparavi..
