Welcome to a cost-effective home for your rapidly growing data

Businesses today face a monumental challenge. They need to control and store rapidly growing amounts of data, while trying to cut costs. Yet this issue of storage isn't just affecting big corporations. Small and medium businesses need to overcome similar situations.

At Life IT and IBM, we prefer to get to the heart of the problem before we offer solutions. So we talked to our customers, big and small, and uncovered the three major pain-points regarding storage. Some or all of them might sound familiar to you and your business. If so, we have some solutions that can help overcome them.

"We can't afford a storage area network"

Our solutions offer outstanding performance, virtualisation and energy efficiency for better total cost of ownership. Plus, IBM financing is available, letting you free up cash to reinvest elsewhere in your business.

"We think we can do more with our existing storage network"

With aging legacy infrastructures, sooner or later something will go wrong. We can offer a range of improvements to fit in to your present footprint, including improved performance, the functionality to centrally manage your existing network and better disk efficiency.

"We have a Virtualisation Project coming up"

Because you"ll only invest in the functionality you need, there"s no reason to delay. You"ll also benefit from network free backups and a solution to fit your specific requirements.
