Description

Your company's global competitiveness depends on the utilization and maintenance of information. Current data handling practices-storing, updating, and accessing data-can be either a problem or a significant strategic advantage for your company. Designing a Total Data Storage Solution: Technology, Implementation, and Deployment gives you the information you need to compare current technologies and determine which is best suited to your enterprise.

This book defines and explains the components that make up total cost of ownership along with the impact of integrating current changes in technology. It discusses the storage, security, volume, growth, and access to data and provides everything an IT manager needs in order to develop an efficient and cost-effective data storage plan.
