EMC OpenScale: Capacity-on-Demand
You need to keep IT spending down, but you also need to respond quickly to changing business needs. EMC OpenScale lets you do both—without giving up control of your IT resources. Get all the benefits of a best-of-breed information infrastructure while paying only for what you use.
Ideal for companies with growing, multi-terabyte installations and complex purchasing processes, EMC OpenScale is a hybrid financing/inventory procurement partnership. It provides an agreed-upon baseline capacity of storage (via lease) and an additional "buffer" of capacity that can be instantly utilized when needed. There is no charge for the buffer until it is consumed; EMC monitors consumption of the non-committed buffer on either a pay-as-you-grow or pay-as-you-go basis.
