The Value of Storage Virtualization for Business Continuity

117

Published on

The digital revolution has led to a proliferation of data across the enterprise. As a result, separate islands of storage have grown in the data center and across the organization, each requiring independent management and protection policies, complicating storage administration. This complexity creates the worst of both worlds: resources that are either under- or over-utilized, wasting power and money.

This presentation discusses the Value of Storage Virtualization for Achieving Business Continuity. Discover how you can consolidate storage resources into a virtual pool for simple and centralized management.

• Reduce primary storage capacity requirements by 50%
• Cut storage capital investment by 75% with Thin Provisioning
• Gain flexibility and freedom from vendor lock-in
• Leverage low cost hardware with enterprise-class data services
• Migrate data seamlessly between tiers to minimize costs

Many systemssend all 8k or more.FalconStor NSS sendsonly the truly changedsectors.512byteDisk sectors“Our standard corporate SLA forrecovering a failed remote office serverwas three days, with the potential for asmuch as a week of data loss. FalconStorNSS gave me a 15-minute recovery SLAwith a maximum or 30 minutes of dataloss, due to the incredible efficiency ofreplication.”
