Data Storage Planning Service
It is imperative that you have a plan in place that identifies how much data storage you need in the short, medium and long term, as well as your optimal storage types and most favourable data storage locations.
With the growth in the amount of data you generate, your data storage infrastructure planning and subsequent decisions are incredibly important.

Our friendly team of experienced data storage engineers will work closely with you to ensure that you maximise your storage utilisation by finding the ideal split between your storage needs for your various business applications, as well as your user storage needs.
It is particularly important that you plan for your storage needs when you have a virtualised infrastructure as your needs can scale up and down quickly as your demands change. As such, having virtual machines in your estate makes planning harder and therefore more important.
Our data storage team will profile your capacity, throughput and I/O loads, which will help you understand and implement protocols, redundancy protection and array features to meet your needs. They will also advise on setting up storage tiering and warning thresholds to ensure that you are aware when performance will become constrained based on your workload and applications.
Our knowledgeable team will help plan for your data deduplication, as well as advise whether you can thin provision your storage, where your storage is only allocated when needed rather than being allocated upfront.
