Aggressive data growth can create complexity, putting undue pressure on your operations and on your bottom line. This results in a need to upgrade your storage. However, increasing your storage resources often strikes fear in the heart of the IT administrator. It conjures up visions of downtime, extra management tasks, expensive services, frustrated users, and working nights and weekends.

A solution that can scale storage completely — online, without downtime or disruption — makes growth painless and helps eliminate the need for over-provisioning.
