  1. I have unused capacities on different (virtual) disks. How can I make use of it?

  3. Do I really have to hold spare servers available just to ensure high availability?

  4. At home all my applications are running on a single PC. Why do I need an own server for every single application in my data center?

  5. I have to deal with countless virtual device names and other cryptic terms. How to keep track of things?

  6. How do I circumvent unexpected load peaks in my high-end storage network?

  7. How can I guarantee immediate access to backed up data in case of disaster without having to wait until a restore is successfully completed?

  8. Do I really need to pay for external services when I have to create a copy of my productive application?

  9. Downtime for the roll-out of new storage systems - is that necessary?

  10. Quite common in IT: Service contracts are expensive, even simple support requests are handled long-winded and unrewarding, communication in native language is not granted. How does OSL organize its product support?
