  3. 3. The Iceberg in the Data Center Could it sink you? structured data unstructured 80% of all digital data data is unstructured Unstructured data is growing by 60% CAGR Unstructured data resists utilization and reuse 3 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  4. 4. Customer Challenges • Explosive growth of unstructured data (files) • Regulatory compliance • Storage admin tasks highly manual and redundant • Costs in hardware, power, cooling, administration • More electronic collaboration = more files • Hidden value deep in file systems • Where to start? 4 © Novell, Inc.

  5. 5. File-based Data Growth “The fastest-growing data type is the file. Unstructured, file-based data is growing faster, is consuming more space, and is being retained longer. This is a challenge that touches every tier of storage, from primary to data protection to archiving.” IDC, January 2009 5 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  6. 6. Just Adding Storage is Unsustainable “Simply continuing to add more storage through traditional methods is unsustainable because many datacenters will be unable to provide the necessary power, space, or cooling. As a result, companies need to be more effective and efficient in the way they provide storage resources.” IDC, December 2007 6 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
  7. 7. Do you know... How many orphaned folders are on the network? How many TB of MP3s? How many documents haven't been accessed in the six months? The last year? How many redundant files are stored? Do you know how much space the files above take up on your network? How much does it cost to power and cool? How much time are you spending backing up? Understanding your data better is the first step to rationalizing it 7 © Novell, Inc. All rights reserved.
