Snapshot: Managing storage for legacy systems

How do you manage storage for legacy systems?

How do you manage storage for legacy systems?

Do you have any legacy operating systems in-house (e.g., MVS, VMS, OS/2)?
Which legacy systems do you have?
How do you plan to maintain storage for the legacy systems?

Poor Storage readers--a majority (61.2%) of you have in-house legacy systems, many of which haven't been supported by storage vendors in years. What's the solution? Most of you (65%) plan to remain with the status quo and keep your legacy systems on direct-attached storage (DAS). For those of you who can, migrating to a storage area network (SAN) is also an option (23.3%). Some plan to retire the legacy system altogether (20%) and an honest minority (8.3%) has no idea what to do. "Pray?" suggests one not-so-helpful reader.
