Size Does Matter: Performance, Uptime, Growth and You


Published on

When instant, reliable access to millions of files is required 24/7, every aspect of an IT infrastructure must be designed with performance and uptime in mind. Database/web/directory servers, storage, networking, and security/virtualization software must all work in harmony to meet strict SLA uptime and performance metrics. George Jon & Associates uniquely employs a replicable baseline network configuration for clients of all sizes, from small business networks to massive international compliance projects. The lessons learned from their experience with clients around the globe are directly applicable to organizations of all sizes, as the core requirement of the architecture is modular scalability with little to no downtime.

  • Question: You talked about Equallogic – what about Compellent?
  • When you need more information a set of master presentations will be maintained on SalesEdge to enable the AE and Specialists to extract materials for customer presentations and address the key issues and solutions of focus.

    They are:

    Why Dell Storage - Redefining the Economics of Enterprise Storage – including AE and Specialists areas of focus

    Additional Workload Specific Decks will drill into areas of:
    VDI for Storage
    Big Data for Storage
    Virtualization and Cloud for Storage

    This eLearning module will address the AE section of Why Dell Storage, and additional eLearning modules will be available through MyLearning for the remaining focus areas.

    The SalesEdge Dashboards have been realigned by roles so the AEs can click and find the information they need and Specialists can click on their link and find specific information for their role.

    Also watch SalesEdge for a new series of Workshops designed to gain hands on experience in “How to sell into workload-oriented storage” environments
