Reap the Benefits of Deploying IBM Smarter Storage


Today, expectations continue to rise, and business and IT are moving faster to respond. In server environments, virtualization has become the new normal. CIOs have been focused on increasing flexibility and improving utilization of physical assets through system based hypervisors. CIO’s are now turning attention to their storage estate and the storage silos that exist in every organization.

IBM makes a dramatic difference in the IT landscape with the IBM Smarter Storage for Smarter Computing approach.  Central to this is open virtualization of storage and its ability to make a real, tangible impact on storage costs while dramatically improving flexibility. With an open virtualization of storage, physical disk capacity from multiple storage systems is pooled together and consumed based on business requirements. This flattening of the silos will drive up storage utilization. Virtual volumes become mobile from tier-to-tier, vendor-to-vendor, and site-to-site giving IT managers the flexibility they need to respond faster. And storage services remain common even across a disk array vendor change giving CIO’s ultimate control over the rising cost of storage. 

Through compelling presentations, first-hand research results and live demonstrations, the "Reap the Benefits of Deploying IBM’s Smarter Storage" customer briefing answers the question “How do I get started with IBM's Smarter Storage for Smarter Computing approach and what tangible business benefits will I see?”
