Senior Vice President, VMAX Product Business Unit
Mission-critical storage is not just block any more. More and more IT systems that run your business use different types of storage. Did you know that 75% of our top 100 VMAX customers currently deploy file gateways? Deploying a file gateway has traditionally involved both a multistep deployment process and a NAS gateway that needs its own rack on its own floor tile in the data center. In addition, many enterprises have mission-critical file requirements that demand higher levels of availability, security, and business continuity. While the gateway is still a necessity for some customers, others wanted to see an alternative.
