Enterprise Storage Management
  • To date, storage management is an ad hoc collection of disparate tools, predominately independent device management utilities (aka just buy 3X what we need).
  • ESM is the #1 cost (and potential cost saving) portion of the Data 2000 IT departments moving forward.

Enterprise Storage Management
  • Storage Resource Management
    • SRM provides (at a base level) the ability to discover assets and correlate them to users/application, etc.
    • SRM provides the ability to visualize what data is where – what is duplicate, what is wasting space, what is being backed up that shouldn’t be.

Enterprise Storage Management
  • Virtualization
    • The great equalizer — it allows you to neuter the “brand”, creating equality among array vendors. Creates the ability to “use” disparate assets. Enables heterogeneity.

Enterprise Storage Management
  • Data Management
    • Backup/Restore/Bus. Continuance, H/A, HSM, etc. Data Management delivers the key components of information life cycle management.

  • Storage Network Management
    • SNM delivers topology mapping and discovery, device management, zoning, multi-pathing, etc. in order to enable a visual overview with the ability to drill down.

  • Storage Policy Management
    • User policies are implemented, which feed (ultimately) automated processes in all other areas. Likewise, all other ESM areas feed into the Policy Engine.
