“… The total amount of digital storage worldwide is approaching 1 zettabyte, or 1 million times the contents of the Earth’s largest library. Currently that information is archived on equipment with a mass equivalent to 20 percent of Manhattan. Global data storage is expected to reach 35 zettabytes by 2020 …”

Storage efficiency is the answer.
No Data Reduction
Embrace Service Providers?Delivering new levels of cost efficiency and responsiveness
Build a Private Cloud?Compete on cost and deliver business enablement
Business as usual is not the winner’s choice
Running out of power, cooling, space in the data center
Economic pressures requiring IT budgets to do more for less
>70% (industry average) of IT budgets are dedicated to “keeping the lights on”, only a minority towards innovation and growth
IT increasingly expected to quickly adapt to business changes
Need to develop forward-looking skills and IT architecture
Continually dealing with numerous vendors for resolution
Gartner says the time for talking is over!
Annual global data center IP traffic will reach 4.8 zettabytes by the end of 2015
Global cloud IP traffic will increase twelvefold over the next five years. Overall Cloud IP traffic will grow at a CAGR of 66 perfect from 2010 – 2015
By 2014, more than 50 percent of all workloads will be processed in the cloud
By 2015, one-third of data center traffic will be cloud traffic.
Projected Revenue Growth from all IT in 2011: $1.6T (5.7%)2 - But cloud is < 2% of the market
NOTE: The economic downturn has amplified cloud services adoption due to the cost-cutting mantra of most organizations.

Storage, the Cloud and Shared Services IT
“Today’s IT landscape is undergoing a major shift as cloud computing and virtualization are becoming the norm. As a result, data management and storage strategies are changing. It’s our job as educators to make sure our students have a knowledge base and understanding of these technologies so that when they graduate, they are prepared to hit the ground running. NetApp has proven to be an innovator and industry leader in enabling shared infrastructures, and working with them really helps me open up new doors for my students and get them ready for the real world.”
Professor Xiao Su Department of Computer Engineering, San Jose State University
"There seems to be a shortage of skilled technologists who understand cloud; how it applies to their IT organization, who the vendors are, what the architectures are (and so on). Those folks are in short supply because everyone is on a learning curve. I think anyone who can stand up and say 'I'm a certified cloud technologist' is definitely going to be sought after by IT organizations.“
Gene Ruth, Research Director, Gartner

What is it ?
A tool that gives you the experience of administering and using a NetApp storage system with all the features of Data ONTAP at your disposal.
“I definitely gained a better understanding of the role of storage. Before this class, I had almost no knowledge of storage in today’s enterprise computing.”
“It was so much better than the textbook! It made it a lot more interesting with the use of the visual aids and the way the narrator described all the components. By using the web-based course you were able to add life to the lesson and it kept my attention.”
“The entire Data ONTAP course was interesting to me, and I’d love to have a chance to play with/use the software in a real world situation someday.”
Yes, being able to listen to “Bob” while looking directly at the graphics and examples that relate to the speech is very helpful. The web-based course is more intuitive and interactive than our text book but more importantly than that, the course is up to date.
