More buffer is deployed as it is utilized
OpenScale streamlines the procurement process so you'll always have the capacity you need, when you need it

We're running very fast here. When we need storage, we don't have the luxury of waiting around. Prior to EMC OpenScale, we had to navigate a lengthy and serial process of determining need, placing an order, receiving the storage, integrating and testing it—then we could go do our work. EMC OpenScale strips out this entire layer of complexity, significantly improves our ability to respond, and gives us the flexibility of a fully configured environment that we can tap into on demand. And, through the new automated billing, EMC has come up with yet another way to greatly simplify our lives. quoteClose
