The year 2011 ended with a staggering 5.9 billion mobile phone subscriptions, especially significant considering that the total world population is around 7.011 billion. Of course, a direct comparison is not fair since many people have multiple subscriptions, but it represents a window into the pervasiveness of these devices and how they are an integral part of people’s lives today.

Enabling mobility in the workplace is a top-of-mind goal for decision-makers within every organization. This necessity is brought about by the consumerization of IT and the requirement to develop policies to manage the “bring-your-own-device” (BYOD) trend.
By 2014, smartphones and tablets will put power in the pockets of a billion global consumers, including your employees and partners and customers.

Hence, network savings begin at the production server and backups are significantly faster since only changed data is transmitted from the production server to the storage solution.
