Overview:

Storage administrators are increasingly revisiting tiered storage strategies to lower asset and operational costs, and to improve application performance. This is accomplished by establishing and assigning tiers according to drive cost and performance. In its simplest form, this means assigning non-critical data to higher-capacity and lower-cost drives.

Recent technology improvements aiding the success of tiered storage include new solid-state disks (SSDs), improved Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and more efficient data movement, classification and quality of service (QoS) software. These developments provide more tiers of storage to choose from, and facilitate moving data to the optimal available storage tier.


This expert e-guide from SearchStorage.com provides all of the information you need about trends and new emerging technologies in tiered storage. Keep reading to make sure you know which storage solution(s) can best meet your company needs.
