The FileCensus ROI is usually achieved quickly through capacity recovery, data migration and departmental chargeback.</p>
<p>XSI Data Solutions was founded 18 years ago and is the largest Australian-owned and managed data storage company. XSI specialises in disk, tape and network-based storage solutions and is an expert in both NAS (network attached storage) and SAN (storage area network) strategies.</p>
