Hosting networked storage on Windows file servers has been a popular and effective approach to managing the growing demand for storage. The result: Windows file servers everywhere. This sprawl makes inexpensive systems expensive because of wasted capacity, low utilization rates and sub-optimal availability. By consolidating Windows file servers and storage devices, IT organizations realize substantial savings in management and infrastructure costs while establishing a highly available, independently scalable platform for file services.
