Taneja Group: Incipient's Storage Virtualization is cool!

In addition to the operational benefits derived from Incipient software, Taneja Group identified the following areas that offer additional savings:

  • Elimination of professional services costs;
  • Reduction of operational costs that are incurred when old arrays remain online to support data migration long after new arrays are implemented;
  • Reduction in the costs created by the excessive purchase of unnecessarily high performance storage. Easy data migration enables better utilization of tiered storage than previously possible, and;
  • Elimination of application downtime costs created by traditional data migration.

"For many large data centers, data migration is still a manual task that puts tremendous pressure on IT resources. Data center managers are demanding data migration solutions that can handle the continuous need to move data across the network without interruption," said Arun Taneja, founder and consulting analyst, Taneja Group. "With minimal time and effort, Incipient can reduce complexity and cycle times and decrease the cost of manual data migrations. These findings can significantly and positively impact the overall cost of running a data center."
