When it comes to storage, it's not just about the storage devices and software, but it is increasingly about the growth of the underlying data and the applications creating all of that data. Demand for storage is increasing with new data types such as rich media and Web 2.0-based data requiring storage. And the biggest growth problem goes beyond primary storage to secondary systems that manage copies for disaster recovery, backup, compliance and business intelligence. Making the right storage decisions, whether they involve virtualization, standardization or even hardware, are top of mind with IT managers today, says Tom Georgens, president and chief operating officer of NetApp, in this IT Link podcast.
