Definition

Standardize and automate the storage environment with the goal of increasing efficiency in the data center.

Challenges

  • Managing storage in complex, heterogeneous physical and virtual environments
  • Low storage utilization
  • Wasting storage with multiple and older versions of the same files
  • Applying and enforcing retention policies across files efficiently
  • Managing and finding information as demanded
Standardize and automate the management of heterogeneous storage platforms to maximize storage utilization, increase IT responsiveness, and lower infrastructure and operational costs.
  • Standardize on a single software infrastructure to improve service levels and reduce costs
  • Reduce costs by replacing dozens of point tools with integrated storage management software
  • Automate storage management tasks to maximize operational efficiency
  • Combine online storage management/virtualization with storage resource management tools to deliver storage as a service
