Leveraging the Power of MIMIX Global to Meet New Uptime and Data Protection Demands

Aug 05, 2015
  • HA/DR
The technology landscape is changing quickly, as are the demands of users, clients, and regulatory agencies. Service Level Agreements (SLAs) have high uptime requirements, users need access to critical data and tools in order to stay productive, and customers (both internal and external) have no tolerance for downtime. What’s more, many organizations are dealing with increasing IT complexities such as the need to maintain branch offices or multiple locations, multiple servers, both new and legacy, and a combination of physical, virtual, cloud and hybrid environments. That is a difficult challenge; to meet it, IT must innovate without adding complexity to an already complex infrastructure.
