Whiteboard Webinar: Dealing with the Multi-Storage Vendor Data Center

Join Storage Switzerland’s Lead Analyst, George Crump for a Whiteboard Webinar as he discusses a key challenge facing data centers today, the multi-vendor storage infrastructure. Most data centers today have multiple storage systems from multiple vendors each with their own feature set and user interface. Storage sprawl is rampant. The vendor community offers IT three potential solutions to address the storage sprawl problem:

  • Replace all the storage hardware with a single consolidated storage system
  • Keep the hardware variety but consolidate the software by replacing each hardware vendor’s software with a software-defined storage solution
  • Keep using multiple storage solutions and live with the problem

In this 15 minute Whiteboard Webinar, George discusses the pros and cons of each of these potential solutions and provides an alternative. Implement a Global Dashboard that compliments the current storage systems instead of replacing them. Join us live on Wednesday, July 25th at Noon Eastern / 9:00 am Pacific Time.

In it, Storage Switzerland provides ways to manage the multi-vendor storage data center so that IT can have the best of both worlds, workload-specific storage that is better managed and more fully utilized.
