Improved Storage Efficiency – NetApp
NetApp’s global specialisation is using storage efficiency to help companies access all of their information resources from disparate silos to improve business agility and competitiveness. NetApp’s approach to storage and data management will lower customers’ IT costs as well as bolster their responsiveness so there’s no need to choose between cost efficiency or improved business performance.
With customers including Aviva, Thomson Reuters and the London Metal Exchange, NetApps’s unified storage solutions liberate knowledge from across the organisation by giving customers a flexible, virtualised pool of data resources that can be scaled up and down.
NetApp’s IP-based infrastructure strategy has also reduced its customers’ storage costs by 90% as well as enabling new applications and data storage to be added in minutes instead of weeks. For example, a major UK telecoms company can now provision entire infrastructures for new customers in just 22 minutes – before using NetApp, the same process took two weeks.
Most companies are typically using only 30% of their existing storage capacity yet paying to house, support, power and cool 100% of it, despite facing annual rates of data growth of 50-100%. NetApp solves these issues using techniques which can reduce storage volumes and mirrored disks by 90%.
