Storage Decisions: Tiered Storage School 101
What is tiered storage, and how does it help?
By placing data in the right storage buckets, real-world companies have substantially reduced storage costs across all their data, while improving business service levels on their most critical data. In many cases, organizations are able to defer additional purchases of high-end disk storage for up to three years.
This session from Storage Decisions Las Vegas, 2006 covers the key to a successful tiered storage strategy by helping you define the requirements of your business data. Before you can design your new storage tiers, you need to understand your application catalog and how your business uses it. This requires looking beyond the traditional IT metrics of recovery time objective and recovery point objective. Focusing on a broader set of key business drivers will allow you to use your storage tiers to offer the appropriate service levels to your business units, while reducing overall costs.
