    • Branch office in a box: strategies for consolidation George Sadler
    • The problem… Data proliferation Creating storage sprawl and complicated by limited IT budgets Increasing regulation Increasing the risk of regulatory non-compliance (SOX, DPA, HIPAA, FCRA, etc.) Budgetary constraints Forcing IT managers to implement lower-cost support alternatives for remote sites “Stretched” remote IT staff Placing organizational data at risk of loss or non- compliance with non-standard backups 2 DELL CONFIDENTIAL Storage Solutions Marketing 2
    • Benefits of consolidation Cost savings redeployed for strategic initiatives with: • Improved disk utilization TCO • Centralized management • Simplified and enhanced backup SAN DAS Source: “Dell EqualLogic TCO Analysis”, July 2009, The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. • Realized full benefits of virtualization • Reduced number of tape drives 3 DELL CONFIDENTIAL Storage Solutions Marketing
    • Key components of remote consolidation Ethernet protocols Deliver centrally-managed, advanced-storage solutions to remote sites leveraging easy-to-use iSCSI networked storage Central management Conduct performance and event monitoring for servers and storage in a consolidated software management platform WAN optimization Remove network constraints to reduce storage and tape requirements with deduplication and acceleration technologies 4 DELL CONFIDENTIAL Storage Solutions Marketing
