Q

Where to go to for calculating SAN ROI

This Content Component encountered an error

Are there any publicly available documents describing methodologies for analyzing storage infrastructures both before and after SAN implementation? I want to make sure that I've covered all the bases and taken into account every relevant component before purchasing a SAN. I also want to make sure that the SAN delivers on the expected benefits.


I think IT-Centric has a tool for calculating return on investment from SAN implementations. A guy I work with (David Merrill) put together a white paper on the subject and it has received good reviews.

The white paper goes through everything from implementing a storage management group to storage and server consolidation.
