Stop Buying Storage - Part 2: Maximize Storage Assets With Thin Provisioning, Tiered Storage, and Cluster File Systems
Thin Provisioning represents an opportunity to immediately optimize the storage systems and make more capacity available to the applications. Although thin provisioning is a storage array feature, servers need to be 'Thin aware'. In order to migrate from "Thick" to "Thin," one need tools that makes the transition seamlessly and without downtime. Moreover, Thin Provisioning must be part of a comprehensive storage management strategy that includes tiered storage and clustered file management. Veritas Storage Foundation delivers the comprehensive management infrastructure tools to optimize not only thin storage, but the entire storage infrastructure. The attendee of this webcast will learn how Thin Provisioning can help increase capacity, but why it's not enough by itself.
