GOAL: Less than $5 per Gigabyte
RATIONALE: The overall cost of storage is expensive and growing. So storing
as much as possible on the fewest number of devices is critical. One way to measure efficiency is the cost per stored gigabyte. One way
to measure efficiency is the cost per stored gigabyte. Dell believes
that total storage costs should be $5 per gigabyte or less. Lower costs are a byproduct of automated tiering, backup and archiving processes, but also a measure of the overall utilization of the entire system. .
POTENTIAL RESULTS: An efficient data network will not only cost less, but will be easier to manage and perform faster.
