Assessment of Automated Tiered Storage for Midrange Arrays
Automated tiered storage (ATS) isn't a new concept, but the latest generation that exists today is vastly more beneficial for organizations than its volume-based predecessor. Previous generations did not allow for the dynamic movement of data at any time that modern ATS enables. The basic business case for ATS is three-fold: Reduced storage and storage management costs, and long-term reduced risk.
Last year, Wikibon published research on ATS for higher-end storage arrays, and this report contains detailed analysis of five vendors' ATS offerings. Access this resource now to get Wikibon analysts' nine major findings, including:
- Who came out on top: Dell, EMC, Hitachi, HP or IBM
- Which ATS has the best automation features
- Which vendor is least supportive
- And much more
