Storage Strategy: Automated Backup

Storage and data management

GOAL OR METRIC: Have Automated Back Up

RATIONALE:  This metric is related to data tiering and storage cost management.  Efficient organizations automatically place critical data (needed to run the business), on highly available -- and usually higher performing and expensive -- storage.  Other data is moved to lower cost storage, and is tiered according to importance

POTENTIAL RESULTS:  Performance, accessibility and cost are matched with the importance of the data and the need for access.

SIDE NOTES: 

  • Technologies such as Dell EqualLogic provide high levels of storage automation with easy tiering
