Stored information is growing in the e-customer base at % In 2000, 70% of systems expenditures will be on Storage. Enterprise is spending 5 times more on managing and protecting information than acquiring storage. Companies bought more storage in 1999 than in all years before combined.

What Decisions Have You Made So Far? Selected Hardware Vendors –Host Servers –Switches / Hubs / Routers –HBAs –Storage Devices Selected Application/s to exploit SAN –Backup, Archive, Disaster Recovery, ERP etc. Selected Services Organization to Install What is left to decide?
How Will I Do SAN Management? How will I maintain availability of the SAN allowing continuous data access for applications? How will I provide a simple, secure method to allocate disk resources to host systems? How can I apply automation to add needed disk resources to maintain application processing? How do I gather needed data to assist in making intelligent decisions for growth and stability? Without adding more personnel overhead !!
How Do I... Discover my SAN interconnections and components? Identify available storage resources? Securely allocate/remove storage to my host systems? Apply policies to automate resource growth? Monitor all SAN components for errors? Isolate problems for corrective action? Launch applications to fix problems? Automate storage administrative tasks? Provide data for event/capacity/performance analysis and decision making? Admin. Issues / Concerns
The Short List of Options Draw/maintain Topology with Paper/Pencil and Sneaker-net. Use multiple consoles and software apps for zoning/masking/monitoring/maintenance. –Switch Vendor Apps. –Intelligent Storage Sub-system Apps. –Individual Host Server Apps. Adding Greater SAN Deployment Risk - More Complexity, Confusion and Costs!!
