Tiered Storage Strategy
  • Define Business Requirements
    • Access performance
    • Resource availability and service levels
  • Identify Storage Classes
    • Data types and volumes
    • Access patterns
  • Establish Storage Policies
    • Retention periods for data migration
    • Compliance with archival storage regulations
  • Select Appropriate Storage Architectures
    • Optimize data placement on storage hardware

Tiered Storage Strategy

1. Define Business Requirements

  • Access performance
  • Resource availability and service levels

Immediate access to active data

95% availability for active data

5 minute system failover

30 - 90 minute data restore time

2 minute access to archive data

slide5
Tiered Storage Strategy

2. Identify Storage Classes

  • Data types and volumes
  • Access patterns

Active - 2TB

Recently created / modified files

Frequent access to most files

Backup - 5TB

All active data

Infrequent access to specific files

Archive - 10TB

Historic files no longer active

Periodic access to random records
