  Start with Clear Goals

Remember: Different priorities will be met by different kinds of storage at different price points.

Define Your Goals Typical strategic goals include:
  • Enable server consolidation including support for virtualized infrastructure.
  • Provide a central platform for faster and more effective replication and backup of system images and enterprise data.
  • Expand capacity to meet rapidly increasing requirements to store unstructured data (e.g., documents).
  • Provide high-performance storage for large stores of frequently changing structured data (e.g., databases).
Use the Storage Acquisition Business Template to explore and define your network storage goals.
