Achieving Storage Efficiency With EMC Celerra

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The EMC Celerra storage platform has a rich feature set that maximizes storage efficiency through storage pooling, deduplication, virtual provisioning and tiering. With the advent of lower power SATA drives and solid stage storage, storage administrators have the choice of provision storage. Different drive technologies present a range of cost, density, and power consumption and performance characteristics to the storage administrator for selecting the best options for storing data set. This paper describes Celerra features that maximize storage efficiency and explains how the features can be used with latest disk technology to reduce costs of storage and managing increasing data. A simple way is to understand the difference in drive characteristics. Match the performance requirements of a data set to performance characteristics of a specific drive type when allocating storage space for a file system. Consolidating all file systems onto a single Celerra centralizes the administration of the storage architecture. File services for Windows and UNIX clients use a single system regardless of whether the data set is served to clients as a CIFS share or NFS export.
