Storage Strategy: Tiering

Storage and data management

GOAL: Have Automated Tiered Storage Infrastructure

RATIONALE:  Storage must be managed holistically and efficiently.
First, there should be intelligent and automated tiering of data, to ensure that Tier 1 or 2 data necessary to run the business is readily available on the highest performing machines. Other data should be automatically moved to less expensive (and less available) media. Second, archiving and backup should be automated, to reduce risk and errors, and management costs.

POTENTIAL RESULTS:  Simpler to manage, faster, less management costs, better data protection.
