In the technical sense, storage devices are essential components of the IT system on which company data is stored. In the financial sense, the total price of the storage subsystem represents a large part of the entire IT budget.
Storage technologies and services directly affect the efficient operation, as they can enable uninterrupted operation even in equipment and software failures. Unwanted downtime causes direct and indirect material damage as well as damage to the reputation of companies. The application of quality storage technologies in combination with server virtualisation technologies reduces the probability of downtime. In cases where downtime does occur, it provides quick and easy recovery and resumption of work.
