Storage Resource Management
Data growth averages around 50% to 100% per year. Organisations face rising hardware-costs and the increased costs of managing their storage. Storage professionals who face out-of-control data-growth are looking at SRM to help them navigate the storage environment. SRM identifies underutilized capacity, identifies old or non-critical data that could be moved to less-expensive storage, and helps predict future capacity requirements.
Providers of SRM solutions include:
- NetApp OnCommand Insight (OCI - formerly known as Onaro SANScreen). Customers[which?] world-wide have been using OnCommand Insight for ~ 13 years now[when?] to manage their heterogeneous storage environments. OnCommand Insight helps large enterprise-customers manage capacity, performance, forecasting, and multi-tenant billing in traditional and cloud environments. Operations teams use Insight for their day-to-day storage operations and to manage risk associated with managing mission-critical storage environments. With a flexible and massively scalable architecture, Insight brings the best of traditional resource management features along with the ability to monitor, report on and bill in private cloud, hybrid-IT and rapidly transforming storage environments.
