There’s a better way to allocate and manage storage

Limited IT budgets, constant demand for 24 × 7 access to information and growing unstructured data got you down? You’re not alone.

Jokes and clever marketing ploys aside, EMC is onto something. The new VNX family of unified storage solutions is arguably the world’s simplest, providing application-optimized management and single-click help and support. For instance, its VNXe (entry) series – affordably designed for small and medium-sized businesses, department level storage solutions for enterprise and remote or branch offices – is ideal for the IT Manager that doesn’t specialize in storage.

You can even take a step-by-step approach, starting with file or block and upgrading to unified storage when the time or budget is right.
  • It’s optimized for virtual applications with VMWare, Hyper-V integration, offering triple the speed of virtualized SQL, Oracle workloads and booting up to 500 virtual desktops in 8 minutes. Um, fast. [Read more…]
