Cisco® Storage Networking Maintenance
Sitting at the heart of your SAN, Cisco network switches must operate optimally at all times to ensure mission critical data is accessible round the clock. You need support for your SAN switches – but it shouldn't cost the earth.
As your Cisco SAN maintenance contract nears its end, take a moment to consider your options. Your account manager will push for a costly renewal – or even suggest a complete replacement of key fabric switches.
The new contract will naturally be more expensive - an upgrade even more so. Every extra dollar spent on an existing SAN is money taken away from strategic projects. But there is a better way.
