Consolidate Storage to Improve Availability and Lower Costs

The consolidation of storage infrastructure has long been considered a risky undertaking. Aside from the time and expense required by data migration, there is a lingering concern about the fault domain (aka “blast radius”) of large-scale storage systems and their potential impact on critical business operations. Advances in storage software and architecture, along with the need to reduce the cost of storage operations, are changing how IT teams view opportunities for large-scale consolidation.
