The IDC expects data generated by enterprises to grow by 48% this year and for 90% of that to be unstructured data.  At this rate, demand is far outpacing the reduction in the cost of storage.  With an ever increasing squeeze being put on IT department budgets, how is this problem being tackled?

The issue draws interesting parallels to the energy crisis governments around the world are currently facing, with demands for more energy offset against rising fuel costs and environmental targets.  There are some interesting parallels in the solutions being used by both as well and perhaps a few tips to be learnt.
 

Saying it with a smile

Power boards in the US have been using some well documented psychological principles to reduce consumption rates, with impressive results and best of all - they're incredibly simple to implement. It likely started with an experiment in 2004 conducted by Roberto...

"Symantec Operations Readiness Tools (SORT) is a set of Web-based tools that supports Storage Foundation and NetBackup products.

SORT automates and simplifies some of the most time-consuming administrator tasks. It is designed to help you, the system administrator, identify risks in your data centers and improve operational efficiency, enabling you to manage the complexity associated with data center architectures and scale." - [Courtesy : SORT Website]

When you saw Data Center Down! did you have questions? Wonder why the failover took 4 minutes? What it was like to set up a DR scenario on a roof? How San Jose City Hall let us do this?

In this LIVE show, the production and engineering crews of the Data Center Down! answered these questions and more. They explored what it’s really like to throw a 500lb server rack loaded with enterprise software from the roof and have it all failover to a secondary site - without any visual effects or camera tricks.

The engineers went through the technology that made it happen. The video crew talked about the high stakes production.

Professor John Graham of Indiana University points out that “large amounts of resources are devoted to slight or speculative dangers while substantial and well-documented dangers remain unaddressed”.  It has been well established that people often too much weight is placed on risks of low probability.  Such is the dilemma of complexity within IT infrastructure.  We often talk about hackers, malware, floods, fires, earthquakes, and tornados; while the real crisis is happening right under our nose and it has well over 5,000 risk signatures.  This crisis is the complexity in the IT infrastructure and it is causing considerable losses for companies.

The likelihood that an organization will experience a catastrophic loss from an IT failure is far greater than any catastrophic disaster or "black swan" event.   IT failures are costing companies trillions of dollars every year; worldwide downtime is estimated at over $35 Billion...
