SlideShare: Faster, Smarter, Simpler – The New Requirements in Storage Networking

IT professionals need a faster, smarter and simpler storage architecture. Organizations drive this need by deploying more diverse and demanding applications and services. Data is the very lifeblood of an increasing number of organizations. The consumers of this data need rapid and consistent access to it. The storage network is the circulatory system that drives that data throughout the organization. Like the human circulatory system, the storage network is the key to the organization realizing the full benefits of the data-driven era. Join experts from Storage Switzerland and Cisco as they discuss the new requirements for storage networking so it can deliver a faster, smarter and more straightforward experience for IT.

Behind the faster, smarter, simpler requirement is a series of technologies. As IT planners consider their infrastructure they need to look for capabilities from providers that help them meet the faster, smarter, simpler objective. In the webinar Storage Switzerland and Cisco discuss how storage networks can improve their speed and flexibility by supporting new network infrastructures like FC-NMVe without sacrificing compatibility. Attendees also learn the new capabilities that IT should be expecting like automated zoning and self-service provisioning.

Beyond speed, next-generation storage networks need to help IT manage scale as hundreds of physical and virtual servers come online. The next generation network also has to deliver a more straightforward administrative experience, so the network is manageable by less personnel.

Next generation networks also need to be smarter by providing better visibility. Attendees to the webinar will also learn how next generation networks are providing telemetry data so that networks can be proactively managed, eliminating problems before they cause outages.
