Federal agencies face many of the same IT growth challenges as their commercial counterparts. Demanding data growth. An increasingly multi-cloud world. Emerging Big Data/AI applications. And the need to effectively manage and protect all their digital assets—wherever they reside. But, government agencies also face other demanding and confidential digital use cases. These warrant not just access to the best fit of enterprise or midrange storage solutions for the job, but also the right care and handling of government customer needs by partners already trusted in federal IT environments.
