IT PRO speaks to Steve Murphy, UK Managing Director of storage technology specialist Hitachi Data Systems

Companies across the board are struggling to cope with data storage demands that are growing at 80 per cent, or more, a year. Yet IT budgets are growing, at best, in single figures.

Businesses need to cope with massive increases in unstructured data, legal and compliance rules that require them to keep more information for longer, and the need to reduce the environmental impact of their data centres.

IT PRO asked Hitachi Data Systems' UK MD Steve Murphy how IT directors can stay on top of the growing storage mountain.
