Modern businesses acquire huge volumes of mission-critical data every day. Managing this data and ensuring it is accessible and safely stored should be a priority of every business, as loss through either damage, theft or unauthorised change could be catastrophic.

    Businesses have different requirements for storage and no two are the same. However, since a backup system contains at least one copy of all data worth saving, the data storage requirements for even small to medium-sized business can be significant. Organising this storage space and managing the back-up process can be a complicated affair.

    Storage virtualisation offers a way of combining multiple storage drives into one centrally manageable resource. Importantly, it also allows a business to make changes to the storage configuration without disrupting the service user. Storage virtualisation adds a new layer of software and/or hardware between storage systems and servers, so that applications no longer need to know on which specific drives, partitions or storage subsystems their data resides.

    ACR has a proven track record of helping businesses to meet their storage needs across a wide range of industries. As storage virtualisation experts, we have the experience and technical ability to design and deliver a solution that meets our clients’ budgets while also addressing their individual needs.

    Advantages of storage virtualisation:
    • Easier to manage
    • Availability increases as applications are not restricted to specific storage resources
    • Reduces the need for manual provisioning
    • Cost effective protection of data
    • Reduces storage costs
    • Increases efficiency and speed of access
    • Offers greater flexibility and scalability
    • Optimises resources
    • Enhances disaster recovery options
