Beyond Backup - a Commonsense Approach to Storage Consolidation

Presented by

StorONE and Seagate

About this talk

Most organizations have five or six different storage systems, often using at least one per workload type in the data center. The multiple storage silos increase storage TCO and complicate data protection. Storage consolidation solves storage fragmentation, but it is a big project, often requiring the organization to "sweep the floor" of many of their current systems. It is an expensive leap of faith. But what if there was a better way? What if you could start solving one of your biggest storage challenges right now, backup storage, then evolve that system, as it proves itself, to cover all the workloads in your environment? Join Seagate and StorONE for our live Tech-Talk "Beyond Backup - A Common Sense Approach to Storage Consolidation." We'll explain how to consolidate storage by first improving backup storage, then gradually adding archive, NAS, VMware, MS-SQL, and Oracle workloads to the same system using the same software. Learn the first logical approach to storage consolidation that eliminates risk and allows you to continue to add workloads to the same system, as previously purchased storage hardware reaches its end of life. During the Tech-Talk, you'll learn the no-risk six-step process to complete storage consolidation: 1. Modernize backup storage to keep pace with modern backup software 2. Cost-effectively and transparently archive old data to lower the need for premium-priced primary storage 3. Consolidate NAS shares into an auto-protecting storage system 4. Consolidate VMware storage to lower costs, improve data protection and improve performance 5. Consolidate high-performance databases like MS-SQL and Oracle, onto the same storage platform 6. Consolidate Cloud Storage to seamlessly move data between cloud and on-premises
