A Few Questions to Consider About SANs

Have you adopted server virtualization? Do you have a SAN to support it?

To take full advantage of server virtualization, you need to leverage storage virtualization as well. The Compellent SAN can amplify the

benefi ts of server virtualization, increasing utilization and improving availability.

Do you have a Disaster Recovery plan? How long does it take you to recover?

The vast majority of companies that experience a major data loss go out of business. With Compellent, you can recover any size volume

to any server in less than 10 seconds and implement replication at a fraction of the cost of traditional systems.

What is your storage growth rate? Are you storing inactive data on high performance drives? How do you decide what data to

store on your highest performing drives?

If you think about email data, old attachments and calendar invites really shouldn’t be on your highest performing storage. Our storage

architect can explain how to automatically tier your storage to save you both time and money.

What percentage of space is unutilized or underutilized?

Industry analysts suggest that up to 60% of storage capacity is wasted. Think about what saving capacity could do for your budget. I’d

like to set up some time and have my storage architect discuss the space-saving benefi ts of new storage features like thin provisioning.
