  4. How long can you manage data the same way? SO WHY IS STORAGE SO EXPENSIVE? Data Growth is out of control… • Storage capacity is growing ~60% p.a. (Gartner) • Companies are only using 40~50% of their installed capacity (ESG) • Total Cost of Storage is growing faster than IT budgets Virtualisation of Servers and Desktops drives even more data into your datacentre….

  5. How long can you manage data the same way? Future Years – Expansion Costs Storage Upgrades Drive Future Capex Spend Requirements • Assuming conservative 40% growth assumption • e.g. £250k initial investment • Assumes “forklift upgrade” to replace SAN in year 5 at same cost as original (to be conservative) Forklift Upgrade
