A hospital uses an application that stores patient X-ray data in the form
of large binary objects in an Oracle database. The application is hosted
on a UNIX server, and the hospital staff accesses the X-ray records
through a Gigabit Ethernet backbone. Storage array provides storage to
the UNIX server, which has 6 terabytes of usable capacity.
¡¡ Explain the core elements of the data center. What are the typical
challenges the storage management team may face in meeting the
service-level demands of the hospital staff?
¡¡ Describe how the value of this patient data might change over time
