    Data Dynamics: Breaking File Efficiency Barriers

    IT shops are looking to achieve greater efficiency and agility, so they are embracing cloud technology, whether to build an internal private cloud, move to a public cloud, or adopt a hybrid mix of cloud technologies. But when it comes to transforming the file storage environment, the road to efficiency is fraught with challenges. File data is often stuck in silos of Windows File Servers and dedicated NAS systems scattered across the enterprise.
