Enabling Data Storage Migration to Speed-Up Your Virtual or Cloud Infrastructure Deployment
Are you in the planning phase or already executing initiatives migrating your IT data to cloud (public or private), virtualized or other forms of efficient, effective dynamic operating environments? Or are you in the process of exploring where, when, why and how to use various forms of abstraction techniques and technologies to address agility, flexibility, resiliency and scalability?
Greg Schulz, lead analyst at StorageIO, discusses the importance of situational analysis of IT resources when moving storage to a cloud or virtualized dynamic environment. This means having insight into how IT resources are being deployed to support business strategies and to meet service objectives in a cost effective manner. Awareness of IT resource usage provides insight necessary for both tactical and strategic planning as well as decision making.
Consider solutions that:
Work with various third party data sources and data movers
Provide insight and tracking of abstracted resources along with their interdependencies
Can automate (where practical) and generate workflow lists when needed
Enable realistic and timely payback or return on investment
Work in traditional environments and virtualized, cloud or abstracted dynamic environments
Facilitate BC, DR and other common Infrastructure Resource Management tasks
