The traditional approach to storage is no longer sustainable. Simply adding disks to contain huge and rapidly growing volumes of data has consequences that no organization should carry. And soon it will reach a level that no organization can carry. The traditional approach runs up hardware costs and gobbles up data center square footage. It racks up power and cooling bills as it wastes energy resources. It burdens IT staff with its complexity. Meanwhile, storage budgets remain flat, making hardware, real estate, utilities and staff harder than ever to come by.
