Storage Appropriateness Assessment Tool

513 | 3 files | null PDF,null XLS

Deciding between high-speed networking platforms is a key factor in the success of enterprise storage projects. Use this Excel-based tool to evaluate the leading networking platforms.

With the advent of 10 Gigabit Ethernet, iSCSI SANs are catching up to Fibre Channel (FC) in performance and popularity. FC use may still be an appropriate decision for larger data centers with high-performance needs and a previous investment in an FC structure.

This tool provides:
  • Questions for establishing your storage consolidation situation.
  • Recommendations for considering Tier One FC SANs, Tier Two iSCSI or FC 
  • SANs, NAS, or iSCSI-only clusters.
Use this tool to gauge which storage type is the best fit for your enterprise. FC has superior performance, but comes with a very high price tag. The most appropriate solution is one that fits business needs.
