Businesses need to develop a better understanding of the impact that poor connectivity could be having on their efficient transfer of data overall productivity.
This is the view of Tim Lustig, product marketing manager for Brocade, who told Info World that effective data archiving requires low levels of latency within a network, as this enables data to be transferred swiftly both during storage and recovery without holding up other business practices.
“Connections to low latency storage such as SSD’s and hybrid arrays is on the increase, VM densities are on the rise and attempts to keep up with ever increasing SLAs are a growing challenge,” Mr Lustig argued.
He concluded the issue of latency is now becoming more important than ever for firms, as with the widespread recent increase in data volumes being handled by many businesses comes the need for more data packets to be sent. There is therefore an increased likelihood that network traffic could become more congested if businesses do not take action to prevent this.
