  • Is It Even Possible?

    • The Patriots Won The Super Bowl, Anything is Possible

    • It Will Take a New Infrastructure Paradigm

      • Pirus, Cloverleaf Communications and a slew of smart switch makers are on the horizon

    • It Will Take Enterprise Storage Management

Enterprise Storage Management Framework

  • 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.

  • What Do IT Objectives call for?

    1. The ability to understand what they have

    2. Understand usage patterns by storage assets

    3. Understand usage patterns by line of business

    4. An easier way to guarantee information availability in order to meet business objectives

  • What Does IT Operations Want?

    1. The ability to modify their storage world

    2. The ability to create storage policies

    3. The ability to restore — 100% of the time

    4. The ability to USE disparate hardware assets

Enterprise Storage Management Framework

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
