SANpulse delivers end-to-end, automated SAN migration, consolidation, and optimization solutions.
Data migration and consolidation projects are a painful experience for any IT team. Even with proper planning [10 Step RFP Process], they are difficult, time consuming, and expensive. Not only do they require an army of consultants, but they are also a highly manual process that involves intense planning, teamwork, and communication. Several people armed with spreadsheets manually collect and analyze data—a situation that leads to errors and increased timelines.
Despite the unpleasantness of data management, consolidation and migration are necessities for all growing companies with enterprise-level data storage. As data grow, IT managers must figure out how to best address their storage needs.
