View now

In this economic climate many things may be uncertain. But, one thing is certain, your business will continue to generate data. IT organizations can expect  to manage 40-60% more storage in the coming year and do so with less budget.

What if you can improve storage utilization by 40%?
What if you could avoid purchasing any new storage in 2009?

The good news is that there are proactive strategies to better utilize your existing storage assets and take the cost out of cost savings.

  • Identify exactly how much storage is not being utilized by applications
  • Reclaim wasted and unused storage capacity, online without business interruption
  • Deduplicate all your duplicate backup data
  • Only store the email once … not 1,000 times

Maximize Storage Assets with Thin Provisioning, Tiered Storage, and Cluster File Systems

Thin Provisioning represents an opportunity to immediately optimize your storage systems and make more capacity available to your applications. Although thin provisioning is a storage array feature, servers need to be ‘thin aware’. In order to migrate from “thick” to “thin,” you need tools that make the transition seamlessly and without downtime. Moreover, Thin Provisioning must be part of a comprehensive storage management strategy that includes tiered storage and clustered file management. Veritas Storage Foundation delivers the comprehensive management infrastructure tools to optimize not only thin storage , but the entire storage infrastructure.

What you’ll learn:

  • How Thin Provisioning can help increase capacity, but why it’s not enough by itself
  • How to migrate from “thick” to “thin” automatically and without downtime by using Veritas Storage Foundation SmartMove
  • Why Windows environments need special help in “thin” environments
  • How to stay “thin” over time using Thin Reclamation API
  • Effective Strategies for tiered storage
  • How clustered file systems can deliver better storage service levels
