PASIG Webinar:  The Essential Elements Of Intelligently Managed Tiered Storage Infrastructures
Original broadcast:  November 21, 2013

Various concepts and applications of tiered storage have been employed for over 20 years. First in the mainframe space and later in the open system space. During the past 20 years, the prevalence of the open systems enterprises have grown along with the explosive growth of unstructured data, with requirements for that data to be preserved, in many cases indefinitely, yet remain readily accessible. The tiered storage model provides benefits of lower overall cost, lower energy, and lower floor space requirements. However, maximum environmental impact and ROI will now be achieved through expanded use of cloud technologies and intelligent tiered storage management. This talk will focus on the essential elements of successful intelligent tiered storage management, in the context of long-term digital information retention and preservation.
