Storage Management as Means to cope with Exponential Information Growth.

In: Proceedings of SSGRR 2003, L'Aquila, Italy, July 28 - Aug 3, 2003


The advances in Internet technology have led to tremendous improvements in business, education, and science and have changed the way we think, live, and communicate. Information exchange has become ubiquitous by the possibilities offered through modern technologies. We are able to offer information 24 hours a day through our web sites and can leave messages every time and from anywhere in the world. This change in communication has led to new challenges. Enterprises have to deal with an information amount that doubles every year. The technological foundation to cope with this information explosion is given by Storage Area Networks (SANs), which are able to connect a great number of storage systems over a fast interconnection network. However, to be able to use the benefits of a SAN, an easy-to-use and efficient management support has to be given to the storage administrator. In this paper, we will suggest new storage management concepts and we will introduce a new management environment that is able to significantly reduce management costs and increases the performance and resource utilization of the given SAN infrastructure.
