Dispersed storage impacts operation

Business value centers on information; it is the lifeblood of any organisation. Employees and customers depend on proper information flow to communicate and conduct transactions. Executives need to secure information to protect intellectual property and respond to regulatory requirements. Consequently, the ability to easily access, migrate, protect and store data is an absolute necessity.

Despite the need, many IT administrators cannot effectively distribute, manage or protect data residing in direct-attached storage. Scattered, disconnected application and data storage systems unnecessarily reduce administrator productivity and increase vulnerability. As application data volumes continue to grow and data storage regulatory requirements increase, administrator problems are compounded. Data storage and management solutions utilizing storage area networks (SANs) can overcome these problems, supporting not only performance improvements, but also operational and resource efficiencies.
