Last Word: Facing Up to the Storage Reality
I recently facilitated three panel discussions at Storage Network World. Using an interactive response keypad I was able to run a series of polls to the 80+ delegates. The results are very interesting and cause for some industry reflection.
When asked what the “most important business issue” was, they said “reliability and availability” closely followed by “business continuity”, with “cost containment” a distant third. When asked their “biggest storage related challenge”, the top response was “Managing growth and meeting capacity.”
