This blog post is a continuation of yesterdayâ€™s post about various aspects of Storage Economics as it relates to Hardware Maintenance cost.
Here are a few other components related to storage hardware maintenance services as it fits into a concept of Storage Economics.
So on several occasions, I have written about Storage management and the cost reduction associated with it in terms of CapEx and OpEx. In this blog post we will talk about how your organization may further be able to leverage resources available in the industry to reduce TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) and improve ROA (Return on Assets) for the storage devices you own.
A lot of new storage technologies are up and coming that have either Storage Virtualization or Thin Provisioning built as its core value. Those technologies can help run your storage in a much efficient manner, but what are your options related to your existing infrastructure that may consist of EMC Symmetrix DMX & above, EMC Clariion CX & above, NetApp FAS series, NetApp G Series, NetApp V Series, HDS USP, HDS USPV, HDS AMS, IBM DS Series, HP Evaâ€™s, LSIâ€™s, SUN branded LSIâ€™s, etc.

The end result
Continuing the blog posts on Storage Resource Analysis (SRA), this will be the final series post. This post focuses on the end result of running an analysis in our Storage environment.
The Business Case
Continuing the blog posts on Storage Resource Analysis (SRA), this post focuses on the business challenges on why analysis of our storage platforms is important and how it might help us discover inconsistencies in storage environments eventually saving millions in CapEx and OpEx.
The Technical Case: Continuing the blog posts on Storage Resource Analysis (SRA), this post focuses on the technical case on why analysis of your storage platforms is important and how it might help you discover inconsistencies in storage environments.
