Reduce the Overall Costs of Managing Mainframe Storage Using BMC MAINVIEW SRM

Businesses rely on storage and require quick access to the data, whether it is located on disk or tape. Storage is growing in an explosive manner fueled by compliance regulations, application content requirements, and business growth. Technology has made storage inexpensive to purchase and as a result, the need to implement storage management processes have been deferred. Analysts' estimates indicate that storage is growing at a rate of 50 to 70% a year. With the raw cost of mainframe disk storage hovering around .02 cents/MB ($20/GB), storage can be considered cheap. However, this does not cover the real cost of maintaining that storage.
