What are your top 3 compelling data storage challenges?


  • Simplicity

SMEs must remove complexity from their storage infrastructure with intuitive management, easy to deploy and versatile solutions that are optimised for SAN and DAS application environments.

  • Performance

SMEs need their storage to perform at the highest IOPs, throughput writes and reads, and host connectivity levels. Additionally, they need storage to have the scalable capacity that will meet their data storage growth projections.

  • Affordability

Many SMEs frequently experience constrained IT budgets for many business and economic reasons and therefore are price-sensitive when it comes to purchasing infrastructure. A storage solution must agree with price/performance sensitivities and that SMBs can effectively measure and afford.
