The continuing exponential growth of data accumulation and transfer has become a key factor reshaping the IT industry.
Today, industry leaders are competing to make latency and downtime virtually non-existent, with speed and reliability driving this “Infowar.” And, data storage, management and transmission specialists are now critical players in the fray.
