Monitor and Audit Storage- Infrastructure that is used to store, share and protect information / data. - Classification: Primary storage (On-line storage) Ex; DAS, SAN & NAS Secondary storage (Off-line storage) Ex: data Tapes, Optical media - One time setup, continues change of data by users / applications 3
  4. 4. Introduction to Storage Training program Information (Data) Lifecycle Management overview:Access – The storage infrastructure on which applications / users access data. Ex: DAS, SAN or NASProtection – The important element. Data is the asset ! Need to protect the same. Ex: Backup, RAID, Snapshot, DR plan (replication across locations)Prevention – Protection against unauthorized access to the information Ex: Domain controller with password management, Access control on file system Encrypted data on off-site data management etcArchival – Reference data for long term access requirement. Ex: WORM Tapes, CAS etcDisposal – Secured and permanent data deletion on the media (degaussing) Environmental friendly disposal of storage media (HDD, Tapes etc) Information (data) management is the operational challenge of the day 4
  5. 5. Introduction to Storage Training programIT infrastructure Administration: - Design & setup of overall IT infrastructure - Mapping business flow to set of IT applications - Selection of appropriate IT applications - Decision on appropriate Computing and Networks infrastructure - Platform / Operating System environment choice - Appropriate storage infrastructure, the data management policy - The organizational IT Security Policy (both Network and Information security)IT infrastructure Challenges: ➢ Each IT applications demands its own resources from the infrastructure ➢ Performance, minimum down time (High Availability) and management complexities ➢ Shortened product life-cycle, EOL challenges. Migration and replacement issues ➢ On demand expansions, Merger and acquisitions, Integration challenges ➢ Reduced IT budget, increasing OPEX cost year on year. 5
