You can hire the best people, have the most proactive executives, and run the most sophisticated IT departments, and still struggle with your enterprise storage management.

When You Need to Get More Value Out of What You Already Have
If the need for transparency across siloed systems sounds familiar, it is the exact problem that was facing a large DFW-based airline, with 3,600 flights a day that serve 94 global destinations. This Fortune 500 Company is known for hiring innovative employees with passion and a desire to excel. Their trailblazing employees are some of the best in their industry.
Faced with the need to reduce spend, this forward-looking infrastructure team needed to identify areas to reduce expenses and get more value out of what they already had. Without easy access to critical and reliable data, they were looking for assurance that their 100+ arrays were operating optimally and efficiently. They knew that they needed reliable, real-time data in order to make strategic infrastructure decisions.
The enterprise IT Director stated, “Our challenge with our storage environment was the amount of time it took to identify inefficiencies. We simply didn’t have the technology in place to perform this analysis on a weekly basis. Not only that, but we couldn’t track and spot trends to proactively tackle issues, such as which systems are overextended and when upgrades are needed on these systems.”
