SlideShare: Three Steps to Multi-Vendor Storage Excellence

Most data centers have given up on the idea of a single storage system for all the organization’s workloads. Organizations have decided to buy storage systems that solve a specific problem. The multi-vendor storage environment does have some advantages. Individual storage systems can target the particular demands of a workload. Being open to a multi-vendor storage environment can also allow a more controlled adoption of newer storage technologies. The multi-vendor storage architecture does create some challenges, however, especially regarding management and administration.

In our on demand webinar, experts from Storage Switzerland and SolarWinds discuss how IT can have the best of both worlds, a mixed storage system environment that targets the specific requirements of their various workloads, while also expertly managing that environment using its resources efficiently and optimally.

Key Webinar Takeaways:

  1. The Pros and Cons of a Mixed Storage Vendor Data Center
  2. The Value of a Global Storage Dashboard (detect performance and capacity problems across storage systems, deliver and end-to-end / application to storage view, free up wasted disk capacity, reduce time to resolution with visibility to the IT issue source and what it impacts, and adequately place workloads for their required performance)
  3. The Requirements of a Global Storage Dashboard (works across multiple storage vendors, provides end-to-end views, does not replace but compliments vendor tools)
