Many of our customers want storage management tools, but the technology
is so new that they cannot always articulate what they want those
tools to do. They are often attracted to integrated suites that
propose to do everything imaginable across all storage platforms,
but then are discouraged by the cost of these products and their
state of readiness for the market.
The storage management tools marketplace is in its infancy, and
is thus a great source of confusion. In the quest to provide end-to-end
management, software companies are buying up disparate technologies
and hoping to integrate them into a common console from which all
storage-related tasks can be managed. It's a great vision, and the
results will certainly be relevant for some environments. In the
meantime, there are straightforward problems to solve today. Cambridge
Computer is prepared to help you identify your problems and match
them to the right set of tools to address them.
Do you need an integrated suite of software that purports to do
everything imaginable, or do you actually only need rock-solid reporting
on the activity of your backup system? Which would you rather have:
tools that enable you to get the most out of your expensive storage,
or tools that allow you to lower the cost of your storage to the
point where it is no longer a concern? How would you like a simple
software tool that maps your SAN, facilitates zoning, and kicks
off alerts if anything breaks? We can help you ask the right questions,
and then work with you to find the best solution using today's technology.
