Today, the term “return on investment” as applied to storage is being defined as a reduction in complexity that results in the consolidation of workloads on less equipment and the discovery of hidden value inside existing data. The ability to access data from multiple sources and in multiple forms – structured and unstructured, SQL and NoSQL, etc. — is critical to increasing the ROI for corporate storage environments.

Lurking inside many corporate data centers across America are legacy storage devices just waiting to expire during a critical task. Some of these older storage devices may be insufficient to handle today’s increased data storage and access requirements, let alone the requirements of tomorrow. The challenges are particularly acute as data analytics become increasingly important to corporate America. Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, has identified five reasons to conduct a storage assessment today to provide CIOs and other IT professionals with guidance about making new storage choices.

“Legacy storage simply wasn’t designed with today’s uses in mind. That means there are systemic gaps that may leave an organization exposed to new pressures placed upon it by unpredictable workloads and unrestrained data growth,” says Bob Hankins, vice president, Storage Solutions, Logicalis US.
