Re: Cost savings
@Brian.Dean. Good point about the value of even a 10% savings. I think the other thing to consider is the sheer growth in the volume of data that enterprises are storing. Managing all of that data in a single pool just might become overwhelming, or at least bog down response times in comparison with keeping relevant data closer to the compute resource.

Cost savings
@James, great post that creates a one-stop center for Server SANs. I feel, as 40Gbit/s and 100Gbit/s LAN transfer rate becomes a widespread reality, businesses will increasingly rely upon distributed storage to cut costs. However, even with 10Gbit/s transfer rates and a time where setting up a complete capability of around 250 TB storage, can cost near $350,000 -- a 10% savings would make a business very happy.

If you thought consumerization killed UC, think again: 70% of our 488 respondents have or plan to put systems in place. Of those, 34% will roll UC out to 76% or more of their user base. And there’s some good news for UCaaS providers.
