Today, enterprises face more storage-related challenges than ever before. Meanwhile, storage has become increasingly complex within the data center. For most enterprises, storage has gone from being an issue that only concerns the IT infrastructure group to an issue that concerns senior management throughout the organization. A number of reasons contributed to the escalation of the importance of storage, including consolidation of technology resources, cost reduction, compliance with new regulatory legislation, and the ever-present nature of today's 24x7 customer application model.
