Storage Essentials for SMBs

SMBs have the same fundamental data center and storage needs as their counterparts at larger organizations—efficient infrastructure and smart data management and data protection. But, often have limited IT resources to achieve those goals. But, after years of getting lost in the shuffle,the pressing needs of SMBs and midmarket organizations are finally getting the attention they deserve. No longer are next-generation storage management solutions designed specifically for the needs of the enterprise. Smaller companies can now reap the same benefits as those of a larger organization—and without breaking the bank. However, this implementation of new technologies means changes—change in product, changes in policy, and changes in process. With limited staff and resources, IT pros at all medium-sized businesses could use a heads-up on the potential obstacles to anticipate—and how to overcome them with the least impact to an already overworked team.
