Gartner’s Latest Report Sheds New Light on Copy Data Management

Tumbleweeds. That’s the image one of our customers recently cited to describe how his data center has been changed and challenged by server virtualization. “Where once there were racks full of energy hungry machines, we have tumbleweeds rolling down the aisles.” Figuratively of course.
