Compellent User, University of North Texas, to Present at Storage Networking World (SNW) 2007Presentation to Highlight the Evolution of Management and Performance within UNT?s Centralized Storage Environment (October 04, 2007)
Gerlachs presentation will focus on the challenges UNT overcame while overhauling its previous storage infrastructure to implement a reliable, cost-effective and scalable SAN environment. He will explore the six areas of centralized storage that must be mastered to tackle past, present and future storage needs, including: high availability, high utilization of capacity, performance-on-demand, expandability, reduced growth costs and efficient manageability.
Gerlach will illustrate how the Compellent SAN supports these six areas with thin provisioning, automated tiered storage, virtualization, and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).
