Storage Workload Consolidation: When Is It Feasible and Why

By: Eric BurgenerResearch Vice President, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group

Abstract

This IDC Perspective examines the ability of new technologies to support broader consolidation of both primary and secondary storage workloads onto the same platform for improved efficiencies. Maturing technologies are changing the conventional thinking in this area, and CIOs should revisit their storage consolidation strategies in light of these trends. The opportunities for lower cost, higher productivity through more centralized management, and improved efficiencies are very real.

"New storage technologies that have matured over the past several years provide the opportunity for CIOs to consider denser consolidation of primary and secondary storage workloads than they have in the past to improve efficiencies and lower costs," said Eric Burgener, research vice president of Storage. "These new technologies include flash, web-scale architecture, software-defined storage, and cloud."
