Most companies are not using all of their available storage space. Much like any other stage in an enterprise-class data migration, optimization, and consolidation initiative, storage reclamation is complex, time consuming, and resource intensive. Although many vendors are able to identify potential reclamation opportunities, none are able to mitigate the task of actually reclaiming the identified space.
Most companies have a low storage utilization rate but are unable to reclaim a portion of their unused allocated storage due to the largely archaic and cumbersome processes that exist in today’s corporate storage landscape.
As a result of inefficient storage use, companies often continue to spend on new storage space despite the tremendous amounts of reclaimable storage available within their existing infrastructure. This practice increases capital expenditure (CAPEX) spending, which in turn increases operational expenditure (OPEX) because of the need to manage associated new storage.
Don’t waste space. Reclaim unused storage.
SANpulse software and services bring automated intelligence to your reclamation project. Select a SANpulse solution to identify potential reclamation opportunities, thereby keeping data current and accurate. Accelerate the identification process by automatically generating the actual, executable commands required to reclaim the identified data, while calculating and communicating the possible impacts of any reclamation(s) on the performance and daily operations of your system. SANpulse is able to gather, analyze, correlate, and execute within a single framework, thereby alleviating the need for multiple resources and extended lifecycles.
