The ease of deploying virtual machines and their successful application in data centers are resulting in virtualization sprawl that is rapidly driving up storage costs. Attend this webcast to learn how applying the right type of disk storage can reduce storage costs, contain VM sprawl, and add data protection that is missing from many virtual infrastructures. For storage managers coping with reduced resources and IT budgets, this webcast will describe a solution that allows them to:

  • Delay the hard cost of purchasing additional storage by moving VM images to low-cost, scalable storage
  • Retain and control complete images of operating environments and applications along with their associated information
  • Ensure the long-term safety and security of virtual images
  • Manage more systems with fewer systems and people
  • Rapidly deploy virtual environments to new or changing infrastructures
  • Save significant storage space by deduplicating virtual images

Attend this webcast to learn how applying the right type of disk storage can reduce storage costs.
