Many vendors offer a storage "on demand" model -- deploying "excess" storage on the floor of the client, which can very quickly be provisioned. Despite the on demand model for storage, few organizations can yet determine the difference between how much storage they own, how much is allocated and how much is used. By simply metering one of these, the owned amount, they have no sense of their efficiency or if buying more seems like a reasonable thing to do.

In this presentation, Richard Scannell, Senior Vice President of GlassHouse Technologies will examine:

  • The current situation in storage provisioning
  • The challenges underlying the accurate metering of environments
  • The impact that poor metering has on overall efficiency
  • The need for re-engineering storage around a supply-chain model
