Reinventing the datacenter to deliver a better cloud
Cloud-based storage continues to dominate the discussion among technology leaders. Its value drivers have the potential to transform business strategy, enabling companies to be more agile, respond more quickly and efficiently to market changes, and manage costs more closely and effectively. But there are risks in making the move to the cloud.
For starters, picking the right partner from today’s many cloud storage providers isn't easy. How do you validate claims and come to a defensible conclusion that a cloud storage provider can deliver the data protection, high speed access, resource flexibility, manageability, and cost containment they promise – and that you require? From the perspective of an end user or business executive responsible for investigating, vetting, or selecting a cloud storage vendor, this presents a real challenge.
