Despite an uncertain economic climate, unabated data growth continues due to the digitization of information worldwide, the need to keep more copies of data for longer periods, and the rapid increase in distributed data sources. This data growth translates into a wide range of increasing management challenges. At the same time, IT organizations are being required to adhere to higher service level agreements, including higher availability and zero data loss requirements. Many also face the challenges of integrating disparate systems and processes due to ongoing mergers and acquisitions.
