Today, enterprises are caught between the continued growth in the amount of data they create, store,and depend on and the need to consolidate IT resources to reduce costs and create a more "green" IT environment. But while organizations have worked to reduce IT footprint, they must balance the need to improve resource utilization with more efficent protection and recovery capabilities, all in the face of increasing capacity pressures.
This IDC Workbook discusses consolidation at the datacenter, server, and storage system levels, including the use of virtualization. This paper also discusses how deduplication can help improve consolidation of resources and reduce storage footprint, as well as improve data protection and disaster recovery under heavy workload conditions. A worksheet to determine organizational readiness for deduplication is included.
