Storage and DBMS Administration

Storage Administration

As the capacity of SAN and NAS devices continue to increase is more critical than ever that Storage allocation be architected before it is implemented.  It is becoming more common to have a single mass storage device for an entire enterprise or multicustomer environments; this requires the logical partioning of the device (LUNs’).  The creation of LUNs involves having knowledge of the Application architecture and the Business activity of the users.  The Storage Administrator has to deal with:

  • Capacity
  • Performance
  • Backup Recovery
  • Data Redundancy
  • Security
  • Disaster Recovery

In a Virtualized environment these issues become even more complex.  Add the flexibility requirements imposed in a Cloud environment and you could have the perfect storm if you do not pick the right service provider.  Our staff of professionals have many years of real world experience, and working with other discipline within our organization have a proven track record of success.
