Information strategy slashes storage costs at GM

Car giant General Motors reduced its worldwide information storage costs by 20% during 2004 by using EMC software, systems and services.


General Motors has standardised its IT infrastructure across its global operations on EMC technology, deploying a tiered storage infrastructure consisting of EMC's Symmetrix, Clariion and Centera (CAS) systems, and combining it with EMC software, including ControlCenter, SRDF, TimeFinder and Documentum to support its information lifecycle management strategy.


EMC said information lifecycle management strategies helped businesses to manage increasing volumes of information from creation to disposal based on its changing value to the business.
