Storage Array Assessment

Today’s businesses are faced with the demands of efficiently running the business’ core applications while addressing the deluge of data coming from internal and external sources. Your IT department is charged with storing, serving, and protecting this data, often with strict service level agreements to adhere to for compliance purposes.

Is your data storage solution optimized for your workloads? Are you due for a technology refresh or looking to expand your existing storage environment?  Have you considered the potential for significant reduction in data center space, power and cooling requirements that are available with today’s modern storage offerings? Works Computing can assist your team in addressing these questions and more, with an evaluation of your data storage needs and assessments of your storage arrays.

The Works Computing storage assessment begins with a discussion with your team to understand your environment and learn about the pain points you may be experiencing.

One of our certified Solution Architects will work with your team to gather data from your array(s) for an assessment that will provide:

  • A snapshot of the workloads running your array(s)
  • A detailed analysis of the data to understand how your system is performing with the workloads currently running
  • Average and peak IOPS, throughput, capacity, block size, and service time latency
  • Pool configuration, drive types, RAID configuration

Following the array data collect and analysis, we will schedule time with your team to review and discuss the findings, and a develop a go-forward strategy that meets your own unique storage requirements.

Focus on your core business initiatives and let a Works Computing Professional help with the rest. Please contact us at 952.746.1580.
