In today’s world, businesses need new technologies to keep pace with the demands of data-hungry applications and deliver IT projects on time. They are continually challenged to be agile and give their best with minimal resources.
However, instead of focusing on strategic aspects, some companies spend their time and money on buying, maintaining, and upgrading costly enterprise storage systems. Despite all the efforts, many storage infrastructures still fall short of delivering the expected results.
