Efficient storage management and storage provisioning can help reduce costs and optimize storage and backup resources. But a lack of well-defined storage tiers and service levels may result in overprovisioning and inconsistent archiving.
IBM Data and Information Management Services – Intelligent Storage Service Catalog can enable more efficient storage allocation and governance by helping you establish standards designed to optimize provisioning, backup, replication and archiving.
