SGI today unveiled the SGI(R) Virtualized Storage Migration Solution, which gives enterprises the freedom to migrate their data to any standards-based storage environment.
Unlike traditional data migration solutions, which may keep customers locked into specific vendor platforms, the Virtualized Storage Migration Solution allows enterprises to choose the storage device that best suits their needs -- an advantage that can lead to better data utilization and significantly lower ownership costs. The new SGI solution also allows enterprises to migrate data without disrupting enterprise applications or operations.
"Although market forces have put an end to the era of proprietary computing platforms, many storage vendors attempt to lock their customers into a single storage platform, drastically limiting choice and inevitably increasing cost of ownership," said Ravi Pendekanti, senior director, worldwide solutions marketing, SGI. "With the SGI Virtualized Storage Migration Solution, we are bringing the flexibility and cost advantages of open standards-based computing to the storage space. Now organizations can move their data to any new storage device without impacting operations, and without risking the integrity of their enterprise data."
