Storage Optimization

Definition - What does Storage Optimization mean?

Storage optimization is the collective process, frameworks and technologies that enable the efficient use of storage infrastructure and resources. It is a broad concept that works across all the technological and management layers of storage management to ensure existing storage resources are working in an efficient and cost-effective way.

Techopedia explains Storage Optimization

Storage optimization primarily helps to minimize the disk/storage use across all storage tiers and resources. Typically, the goals of storage optimization are to reduce storage hardware and administration costs, consolidate existing storage resources through server virtualization, gain system-wide visibility into storage resources and minimize storage administration. Data classification and visualization, storage virtualization, tiered storage architecture, integration of storage management software and policy-based storage automation are some of the processes and technologies used in storage optimization.
