Digital information is growing at a phenomenal rate; data needs to be efficiently managed, securely stored and constantly available. As more and more data is saved by users, your systems need to cope with rapidly expanding storage demands.
Databases, mailing lists, graphics, video, multimedia, complex spreadsheets and a huge increase in email traffic are all putting pressure on storage resources.
The traditional approach to storage has been to simply buy more servers. This comes at a high price for the majority of companies whose storage is directly attached to each server, meaning that any spare capacity cannot be shared and is simply wasted. To avoid such wastage and the associated outlay, we will recommend a centralised storage strategy tailored for your business.
The HP Proliant Storage Server family provides many benefits over today's standard server:
- Reduced cost. Windows Storage Server has unlimited CAL's, so you no longer need to purchase multiple licenses for all your users.
- Improved performance. By removing items that are not required for file serving storage servers deliver exceptional performance.
- Scalability. Proliant storage servers can grow with your business needs, for example the DL380G4 storage server can scale to 50TB of data.
