Focus Areas:

Information lifecycle management is much more than tiered storage or even hierarchical storage management. ILM is a dramatic change in information management, focusing on the value of information and delivering storage services based on management requirements. Understanding the storage and information aspects of business processes is generally outside the current repertoire of Storage Administrators and Enterprise Architects. This White Paper is intended to discuss the issues and benefits arising from an information lifecycle management (ILM) effort.
