Storage Virtualization Can Reduce THAT Cost Too???
MCA Article Feed.
Storage virtualization has been proven to reduce many different types of storage related costs. Most notably the costs of migration, asset purchase, cost of waste, floor space, electricity and many others are reduced with controller-based, heterogeneous storage virtualization. When building a business case to move to a virtual, flexible, content-and-information-cloud architecture, these cost areas are most noticeable and demonstrable.
For more specifics on some of these cost areas, here are a few of my earlier blogs for reference:
But perhaps you did not know about other cost sub-cultures where storage virtualization can have a positive impact. My next few posts will present (one at a time) the direct impact due to storage virtualization.
- Part 1 – HW maintenance
- Part 2 – Cost of copies
- Part 3 – Long distance circuits
- Part 4 – Provisioning time
- Part 5 – Cost of procurement
If these 5 blogs are popular enough (I will never know unless you grade these or provide me some comments), then I will commit to another 5 less-thought-about costs that can be reduced with storage virtualization.
