ABSTRACT:

Demand for storage capacity grows annually by about 35 percent, and it’s only going to keep growing.

But continuing to purchase additional capacity gets expensive, and no matter how much data growth increases, budgets are shrinking or remaining flat.

Storage capacity utilization metrics provide a framework you can use to analyze and manage SAN storage use across a diverse IT environment. Check out this white paper to explore how capacity metrics can help your organization:

  • Establish a clear link between the purchase of raw capacity and the use of that capacity
  • Measure efficiency gains due to new technology adoption such as thin provisioning and deduplication
  • Create operational thresholds that alert you when you need to add or reallocate capacity before customer service levels are jeopardized
  • And more
