Consider the following situations:

  • Ever had the problem where you are running blind on your storage utilization? The application owner asks for more storage every month and you wonder how he is utilizing the  storage you allocated last month.
  • Ever had your CIO ask you tough questions, “What is our global storage capacity and utilization?” And you wish you had the latest consolidated report emailed to you the previous night. Or even better a live dashboard.
  • Ever wished you knew how well aligned are the strategic applications to the underlying storage? You have no idea if your mission critical application is using tier-3 or tier-1 storage without several disparate checkpoints.
  • It’s about time somebody stopped telling you how bad your storage utilization is and actually gave you an easy way to remediate this problem without any application downtime.

Exploding storage growth is the biggest problem faced by storage administrators and giving many a sleepless night forcing them to figure out ways to reduce storage and thus control costs. While thin hardware provides the capability to reduce storage, for the most part its storage reduction remains limited because of lack of information at the array level. Veritas Storage Foundation helps admins get the most of their thin hardware by utilizing the intelligence of the file system to make thin provisioning better.

Veritas Storage Foundation helps admins to get thin and stay thin across disparate hardware. It's Smartmove feature helps admins to move data  to thin capable hardware, while its thin reclamation feature helps them keep data growth ini control on an ongoing basis.

 In this white paper "Thin reclamation for the IBM XIV Storage System and IBM Storwize V7000 using Veritas Storage Foundation Enterprise HA" IBM", IBM...

It’s that time of year again; my car needs a service to ready it for the coming winter. It’s only August and around 25°C here in the UK.  It’s amazing how quick the weather turns these days; on comes the wind and the rain and before you know it there are signs for Halloween and Christmas in the shops.  So upon the topic of servicing the car,  I mentioned in passing this morning to my partner that I should book the car in for its service and her response was “Can’t you do that yourself and save some money?”. Of course I probably could. Thinking about it for that moment, but it’s much easier for someone who knows what they are doing to do this for me. I may of course save some money if I did it myself, but saving money doesn’t always mean saving me time. Also I’m sure she was thinking of spending the savings on a pair of shoes or something else and that’s one battle I would lose.

Let’s think...
