Server and Storage Management - Capacity Planning
Overseeing storage as it breeds in an enterprise is a big test. This is not an easy task to determine the amount of storage space available and to establish where all the storage facility is located. There is also a further step of allocating the storage space to different users and applications. This has brought about terms like data duplication that are trending recently in order to maximise the efficiency in server and storage management.

Capacity planning is way more complex than it sounds. Understanding the server and storage requirement for a firm is a fairly complex process when the idea is to get the capacity planning undertaken in the most efficient way possible.

The move is increasingly trending towards older storage systems being replaced by heterogeneous ones.
