The World of IT has Changed
SMB IT Challenges are largely the same as Enterprise IT Challenges
The scale and size is the only difference!
Key Challenges:
•
Dealing with Sprawl
•
Doing more with Less
•
Integrating with modern tools to support
IT evolution
The path from A to B does not need twists and turns!

a server/storage to host our file/print/shares
a server/storage to host email/massaging
a server for the CRM system
a server to host our web server
a server for manufacturing
a server for engineering
That’s six servers/six individual storage pools
Day to day management x6
Monitoring storage usage x6
Reliability “issues” x6
After
Consolidation is critical to breaking the trend
Centralize the management tasks
Better utilize all assets - virtualization is a tool

Laws of Physics for IT Today: Do More with
IT infrastructure is responsible for “enabling” business efficiencies. As
Less
businesses and applications evolve, IT must also evolve to keep pace.
Breaking it apart:
Do more…
• SW pushes the limits on performance - More powerful server and storage infrastructure is required
•
•
each year
Rich business applications create more data, more views, better correlations, more business insight.
The result, capacities are growing and scalability is key
Use cases and workloads are less predictability
…with less.
•
•
•
Tighter Budgets – Facts of life in all areas of business. IT is not immune
More HW, More Apps, More User, 24x7 access … and likely the same or less IT headcount
Legacy data centers or IT facilities means - It all must fit in the same space
IT Managers need help!

Better building blocks – Servers, storage, networking
Better tools – More powerful management tools, smarter OS’s, virtualization

Server Virtualization growth continues to shape
Companies are adopting or expanding virtualization- regardless of size
IT
• 80% of applications will be virtualized by
20151
Reduce costs - OPEX and CAPEX
 Consolidate the number of servers
 Increase energy efficiency and utilization
Reduce business risk
 Reduce downtime
 Simplify disaster recovery
Improve IT agility
 Accelerate application deployments
 More dynamic allocation of resources
Millions
• Why?
Virtualization enables efficiency, flexibility
and robustness in the data center

P2000 Use Cases - Entry-Level
Consolidation
Scenario/Customer Pain Points
•
Customers are typically looking to make the transition from a number of
point solutions to a shared, centralized storage solution
• SMB IT managers are not always storage experts –
Need slightly more guidance/education, simple management
Typical Solution Attributes:
•
Some will be leveraging virtualization technologies as a
part of the consolidation effort
• Backup, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuance infrastructure is often evolving to
take advantage of D2D and Snapshot technology
The P2000 and Entry-Level Consolidation
•
Excellent Price/Performance and Price/Capacity metrics
• Often coupled with server refresh activities

P2000 Use Cases – Departmental Block
Storage
Scenario/Customer Pain Points
•
Users typically have solid understanding of Mid-Range and/or Enterprise Storage but need a solid
block-level storage array to meet a departmental need
•
Customer’s departmental requirement must “align” with the datacenter infrastructure – Need to
“Fit In”
Typical Solution Attributes:
•
Virtualization is almost standard and fairly “evolved”
•
Backup, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuance infrastructure usually exists
