Storage Economics: Four Principles for Reducing Total Cost of Ownership

Difficult economic times require new perspectives and strategies for reducing the cost of storage infrastructure. The past several years of IT procurement have left many IT organisations with under-utilised and oversubscribed storage capacity. Now, with a squeeze on capital and credit, many organisations are faced with edicts to do more with less and to make tough decisions on where to invest available funds. In particular, there are increased demands to do more with the existing, sunk infrastructure costs in the IT department. This paper outlines methods of quantifying storage infrastructure costs and identifying those that can be reduced, and it presents techniques, developed on the basis of several years' findings, for reducing those costs.
