Efficient Storage Consolidation with Dell Compellent

Historically, IT departments have responded to growing business demands by deploying servers, storage and networking dedicated to specific applications or functions. In many cases, this resulted in a complex infrastructure that is difficult to manage and costly to maintain. Meanwhile, the explosive growth of data continues while the operating costs in the data center keep on increasing: 80% of the IT budget is spent just to keep the data center running, and the volume of global data is expected to grow nine fold in the next 5 years, with 90% of it being the most challenging, unstructured data.
