Intelligent Storage Capacity Management

An introduction to managing storage capacity in enterprise block-level storage environments. Learn about key activities in the area of performance capacity planning including:

  • Monitoring
  • Pro-Active Management
  • Modeling
  • Tier Planning

Understand the technologies, measurements, processes, and challenges in space capacity planning. Gain insight into both the storage space capacity planning measurements and the performance capacity considerations required for implementing a storage capacity planning process that lowers risk and saves costs. Find out why it is vital that both space utilization and performance utilization are incorporated in the storage capacity planning process. Discover how IntelliMagic Vision provides the ability to assess both the performance and capacity sub-processes associated with storage capacity management.

Summary

In recent years, technology improvements have offered the prospect of significant improvements in the area of storage capacity and performance management. On the capacity side, thin provisioning has provided the necessary functionality to make significant improvements in the area of capacity management. Yet, basic capacity planning disciplines and their supporting technology solutions, such as IntelliMagic Vision, are still required to effectively manage capacity. This paper described some of the technologies, measurements, processes and challenges in the area of space capacity planning.

In the area of performance capacity, the discipline and the associated toolset are fairly new. Monitoring, pro-active management, modeling and tier planning are key activities in the area of performance capacity planning.
