Abstract: 

The presentation will provide a strategy and a automated methodology for Data Center Storage Optimization and Consolidation from Performance, Capacity & Cost perspective for a large multi-vendor multi-tier infrastructure. This methodology shows how to leverage existing OEM tools in a highly efficient and automated manner to extract the data, summarize & aggregate data and then model for a desired target storage configuration. This multi-step automated process has already been implemented successfully in a commercially available tool. This strategy has been used multiple times for up to 30 PetaByte environments.

Learning Objectives

Performing storage infrastructure discovery of current storage infrastructures
How large storage infrastructure can be consolidated into denser footprints
How to create consolidation models for a multi-vendor multi-tier environments
How to leverage the methodology for ongoing Storage Analytics - Performance & CP
