"Storage system architectures are shifting from large scale-up approaches to scale-out of clustered storage approaches. The need to increase the levels of storage and application availability, performance, and scalability while eliminating infrastructure or application downtime has necessitated such an architectural shift.
This paper looks at the adoption and benefits of clustered storage among firms of different sizes and geographic locations. Access this paper now to discover how clustered storage offerings meet firmsí key requirements for clustered storage solutions and the benefits including:

Over the last fifteen years, mobility solutions have evolved from cell phones and pagers to platforms for wireless email and mobilizing business applications. Today's road warriors depend on their mobile devices for fast, reliable, easy access to applications and corporate data. Mobile solution downtime can adversely affect customer service, productivity, sales, and revenues.
"Time is money. You can't do business if you can't access your applications. I won't settle for anything less than 99.99% application availability." Steven Sommer, veteran CIO/CTO There is no aspect more critical to a business than the ability of its end users, customers, business partners and suppliers to have high availability access the corporate applications. If applications are unavailable, business ceases. And corporations know it.
To accommodate increasingly dense technology environments, increasingly critical business applications, and increasingly stringent service level demands, data centers are typically engineered to deliver the highest-affordable availability levels facility-wide. Within this monolithic design approach, the same levels of mechanical, electrical, and IT infrastructure are installed to support systems and applications regardless of their criticality or business risk if unplanned downtime occurs. Typically, high redundancy designs are deployed in order to provide for all eventualities. The result, in many instances, is to unnecessarily drive up both upfront construction or retro-fitting costs and ongoing operating expenses.
Today’s Wide Area Networks (WANs) are experiencing increased saturation with the deployment of bandwidth-intensive applications, increased numbers of users, and the need for reliable security transmissions. IT personnel responsible for these issues acknowledge the increased congestion and have strived to maintain high levels of network performance. At the same time, IT departments are tasked with the job of lowering the cost of network infrastructure and ongoing operations. Network administrators continually face the challenge of balancing the increased use of critical applications on the Internet, while eliminating downtime and congestion from affecting user quality and day-to-day business operations.
This white paper shows how information availability solutions ensure the availability and accessibility of data and applications, regardless of planned or unplanned interruptions. They transform costly unproductive downtime into value producing uptime and help IT managers solve the challenges of automated patient care and compliance.

Email is one of the most critical applications in use in business today: it is embedded in many business workflows, it is used by engineers to inform them of infrastructure issues and it is used to communicate with customers and business partners. In short, the modern organization has email at the heart of its communications and business processes. This makes it critical to minimize both the downtime and loss of email upon the outset of a business continuity event.
High availability (HA) configurations seek to bring downtime to zero - but can increase complexity across the IT organization, often in the form of excess technology, financial, and human capital investments. Learn how application virtualization can reduce planned and unplanned downtime, and deliver greater flexibility.
