In the computer world, storage is a place where the clients data is stored in the either an optical or electromagnetic form which can be accessed by the process of a computer. There are two uses where in this can come in handy. They are as follows
.

. For storage resources, there is a single point of control
. The capacity of the systems used for multiple storage are pooled on a SAN
. Using the System X Technology, the pairs of storage engines are clustered accordingly.
. Real-time Compression
. Imaginative and firmly incorporated support or backing for flash storage.
. The configurations for stretch cluster can be enhanced to suit the needs of the customer.
. Snapshot replication and Thin provisioning.
. It is designed in such a way that it helps to enhance the efficiency of the management.
