Business leaders are embracing the digital transformation as a critical factor for success, and they expect IT to help them innovate faster, increase profitability, and gain competitive advantage. But digital transformation is putting new pressures on IT organizations and pushing mission-critical IT storage environments to the limit. Faced with exponential data growth, hyperscale virtualization, evolving workloads, and new demands for always-on business operations, the IT storage infrastructure must evolve to enable businesses to thrive in this new era. The legacy infrastructure was not designed to support today's pace of business and growing requirements. IT organizations need to modernize the data center and deploy a storage infrastructure that can deliver greater consistency, predictability, lower latency, and higher performance.
