“If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It”
My old man used to drill this statement into me like a copper screw, living firmly by the timeless adage of “if you mess with it, you’re going to break it”. For the most part he was right – everything I played with as a kid often ended up in pieces!
But does this statement still ring true in the IT and storage worlds? Maybe – or at least possibly, up to a certain point.
What would be the result of sitting back and doing nothing with your network environment? If you just let it do it’s thing, surely things wouldn’t be so bad – perhaps your IT staff would have a few extra spare hours on their hands?
You can’t cut corners when it comes to storage
Sadly, there’s no such thing as “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” in the IT and storage worlds – or at least, it isn’t an approach that will get you far in the long run. In the storage world, the opposite of our timeless adage is true: constant attention to detail results in the adoption of more powerful and efficient technology, and also makes network infrastructure become more secure and dependable.
Fortunately, there are ways to help you save some time when paying attention to detail, that will also make your environment more robust and dependable. Our affordable solution, SvSAN, provides a simple, cost-effective and flexible means of virtualizing your storage so that you can save time, effort and money.
Maybe it’s not quite as hands-off as the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” approach – but as our customers agree, it’s certainly a straightforward solution that will give you some well-deserved peace of mind (and who knows – maybe it will generate some spare time for the IT guys by cutting downtime headaches).
