Data Discovery and SAN Optimization
Enterprise-class SAN infrastructures are constantly and rapidly evolving. It’s hard—almost impossible—to have a perfect understanding of your company’s SAN environment. Yet before you embark on a storage migration, consolidation, and optimization initiative, you need to have a thorough assessment of your system. This pre-migration discovery phase is critical to the overall success of your SAN migration project; unfortunately, it is also one of the most challenging.
If you or your company has been through a data migration before, you know how painstaking the data discovery phase is. It takes months of taxing work: compiling data, comparing spreadsheets, and investigating discrepancies. In conjunction with these exacting tasks, the discovery tools that most companies use may cause more problems than they solve—especially if your enterprise has a mix of vendor equipment (as most companies do). Once you’re done with your massive data collection, you still have to match up the various reports from all of your different tools. This process can often take weeks, and, despite all your effort, it is likely that not all the discrepancies in your SAN infrastructure will be resolved, leaving doubt about the reliability of your assessment.
