Here is the answer to Storage Management Survival School quiz 1, question #5.


Question #5

According to Jamie Gruener, what's the hardest part of storage management planning?

a) Convincing upper management to buy-in
b) Choosing the right product for your specific environment
c) Predicting growth
d) Implementing a plan

Were you correct?

b) Choosing the right product for your specific environment. Storage vendors have aggressively over-marketed their products, and it's getting harder and harder to classify each individual product. Selecting the right product, therefore, should be the culmination of a process of researching vendor offerings, understanding corporate goals and getting a solid feel for the market at large.
