As business technology continues to evolve, the volume of information available to businesses continues to grow exponentially. Across all industries, more information needs to be stored, managed, and used by the business to drive future decisions. Main drivers for this information explosion include: Compliance - the requirement for legal and regulatory needs to store key information; Business Value - the more a business knows about its markets, customers, competition, and overall business climate the better decisions they can make for the future; Customer Satisfaction - as business technology has increased, so too has consumer technology. Customers in all markets are becoming increasing techno savvy, and demanding more from the businesses that serve them.

In today's environment, when thinking about Information Infrastructure (US), one needs to think global and have a worldwide perspective. Businesses operate 24x7x365, and there is no such thing as "real-time". It's about "all the time". Access to information is critical and an imperative that most companies cannot afford to take a risk on. In the event of an outage or decreased performance, the level of intensity rises exponentially and the problem dramatically shifts to information recovery and damage control. IBM Storage and Data Services can help customers prevent such tragedies and ensure information is securely available at any time, all the time.
