Today, Mainframes have cemented their position in the marketplace as the premier Enterprise Server, providing a large supportable and reliable repository for today's data-intensive client/server applications. Many other critical applications and services are run on data center class servers using Unix and Windows NT/2000 operating systems. All these platforms require disk and tape storage to support your most valuable asset — your organization's data.

How to store your organization's data for production, backup, and disaster recovery can present difficult challenges. Is Direct Attached Storage (DAS), a Storage Area Network (SAN), or Network Attached Storage (NAS) best for your requirements? Or is it some combination of all of these? What about the new EMC Centera Content Addressable Storage (CAS) solution for your archived fixed content data? What about offsite storage of data for disaster recovery and business continuity? What is the best storage management software to help you best utilize your storage resources? How will you satisfy the growing demand for data storage that will be required as e-commerce, customer relationship management and data mining, rich media, medical imaging, HIPAA initiatives, increased scientific data, and new publishing architectures continue to demand more storage?

These are the questions that we at Progress Systems can help answer. Our skilled and experienced staff can help analyze your unique needs, identify the appropriate solution and procure and help deploy it to help you get the most out of your valuable corporate data and information.
