Storage consolidation is an accepted best practice because it enables organizations to improve operational efficiency, reduce costs, and simplify management. An obvious benefit of consolidation is storage capacity utilization.

To avoid performance utilization problems administrators should provision storage so that loads are balanced across resources evenly.
