Common IT business Challenges Protecting information given exploding data growth Delivering a powerful and highly available infrastructure Balancing desired data protection P! and "! with costs and budgets #nderstanding and preparing for all types of disasters and outages "esting and assuring disaster recovery plans

Severe ramifications of data loss

Data unavailability results in lost revenue and possibly business failure

Replication is the answer

7itachi N6* replication delivers multiple benefits

7igh 6vailability
8ault9tolerant' failure9resistant streamlined infrastructure with affordable cost foundation

:ontinuous !perations
Non9disruptive bac&ups and system maintenance coupled with continuous availability of applications

Disaster ecovery
Protection against unplanned outages such as disasters through reliable' predictable recovery

Hitachi NAS Replication choices
