SAN Storage Economics

The Economics of Enterprise SAN Storage

Enterprise IT companies are turning more to SAN Storage solutions to meet increasingly demanding deployment times and performance needs. End user experience, employee productivity and company growth depend on fully-functioning, efficient business applications.

Because of this, gone are the days that companies choose infrastructure investments with a sole focus on capital and operational expenditures. IT managers are still concerned with reducing OPEX and CAPEX, but increased solution availability means they can keep an eye on other aspects like ROI, $/IOPS, $/GB and IT support.

In other words, investment consideration has shifted from total cost to what IT managers can get for a set price and how quickly they can see a return on their investment. They’re not trying to lower their budget, but are interested in getting more bang for their buck.

Many IT managers with this mindset turn to a SAN storage solution because it:

  • Consolidates all of their business data into one unit.
  • Reduces backup and deployment time.
  • Improves application availability and performance.
  • Implements disaster recovery for multiple apps at once.
  • Provides optimal support.
  • Better utilizes the disk.

All of these aspects, in turn, efficiently lead to lower TCO in the end and quicker ROI in the beginning.
