Data volumes are growing at unprecedented rates, and there are no signs of a slowdown in storage capacity demand. Traditional storage deployments are hard-pressed to accommodate this growth. Most companies are grappling with legacy storage issues, including:
- Costly proprietary hardware and software, often from multiple vendors, which drives up costs—plus the need to budget for expensive, major upgrades, which ties customers to depreciation cycles that limit flexibility
- Inflexible systems that must conform to vendors’ product refresh cycles and product catalogs rather than specific needs
- Inefficient scaling of capacity, often forcing companies to overprovision storage
