What IBM Storage Utility Offering can do for your business

The IBM® Storage Utility Offering improves storage provisioning and offers a new way to procure storage capacity by linking costs directly to your business needs. We work directly with you to identify your current and future capacity needs and agree on a configuration. Your entire future (typically 3 year) projected capacity is delivered to you, ready for deployment. You simply provision the storage you need as your business needs grow or change. Your costs are calculated monthly based on your usage, and we bill you quarterly. The benefit is that you only pay for the capacity you consume every month.
