Processing increasing amounts of information more reliably, efficiently, securely and cost effectively can be a daunting task. Current economic conditions are pressuring IT organizations to reduce staff, but explosive growth in information collection, processing, analysis and dissemination must still be addressed

Storage Area Networks

Information management is rapidly moving from single vendor, homogeneous storage and server environments to a best-of-breed multi-vendor, heterogeneous platform. Storage Area Networks (SAN) are proven to most effectively manage information served and stored on these disparate platforms. Yet, the design, implementation and management of SAN requires a complex combination of skills currently in short supply in the industry, as storage is not a core competency in many corporations
