Data today is not only growing faster and bigger than ever, it’s also considerably different

than it has been. It comes from different places social media and the Internet of Things,

 in addition to the enterprise itself.

It’s used in different operations

analytics and cognitive workloads as well as backups and archiving.


It’s structured differently on

flash, as file and object data, and as traditional block data.


And it’s stored differently

in a software-defined, storage-rich server infrastructure and in the cloud rather than only a storage area network (SAN) environment. But just as these differences can make data more beneficial for business, they can also add complexity and cost for IT.


Challenges ranging from management to licensing often arise from the jumble of multi-vendor applications typically deployed to support virtualized environments. But integrated solutions managed together and purchased together under a simplified licensing and pricing structure – and then used as needed at no additional expense – can provide the streamlined management and lower cost organizations need to get the most from data.
