Data Reduction in Primary Storage: How to Improve Performance and Lower Costs with StorCycle

More than 80 percent of data is being stored on the wrong tier of storage, costing organizations millions of dollars a year. The cost benefit of managing data to different storage targets based on usage is generally well accepted in the data storage industry, and modern storage management software can be used to reduce the overall cost of storing data by up to 70 percent. However, organizations can be hesitant to put their data on these lower-cost storage locations because it may be difficult to identify and move the inactive data. Read More


The Simple Truth About Storage Tiering: Stop Wasting Money on Costly Data Management

Tiered storage is generally accepted as the prime methodology to reduce data storage costs and improve storage efficiency. Its objective is to minimize storage costs by storing data on a range of different storage media that balance performance, functionality and capacity needs.

Traditionally, data storage has been defined by the technology leveraged to protect data using a hierarchical pyramid structure, with the top of the pyramid designated for SSD to store ‘hot’ data, SATA HDDs used to store ‘warm’ data and tape used for the base of the pyramid to archive ‘cold’ data.
