RELDATA's open architecture allows the administrator to choose from a mixture of heterogeneous disk arrays to virtualize, allowing them to tailor the storage to the specific needs of the application. Each wizard adapts by seamlessly and transparently linking to other wizards in order to quickly and accurately complete the storage task requested.
