DBA’s Have Many Challenges
Responsive to Executive data demands
More work, but flat to declining budget
Policy enforcement
Set up new databases – normally takes hours/days
Availability of applications – effect of HW failures
Testing and upgrading applications
Determine performance limitations
But…cannot take data offsite

Meeting spikes in workload requirements
Example: Christmas shopping season!

Check out how Cisco Unified Computing Systems address these problems and solve them !
