New solution to University data storage
What is happening?
The University recently invested significant funds in a new data storage solution to accommodate our ever increasing requirements. This centralised storage infrastructure will provide greater capacity, higher performance, automated archiving, and improved energy and cost efficiencies.
When is this happening?
Implementation and testing of the new Dell EMC storage system has already begun and should be complete by the end of March 2011. We will begin migrating data from our current servers in April.
Why might this affect me?
The new infrastructure is scalable. However, if we are to make best use of this resource we will gain little by migrating obsolete data onto the new system where it will occupy valuable space.
Growth forecasts indicate that the new system will meet all our medium term data storage requirements. By carrying out some careful housekeeping now, we have the opportunity to extend this period, thereby helping to manage the cumulative long term costs of data storage.
So how can I help?
You can help by reviewing the data currently stored on your H: drive and by deleting all obsolete or duplicate data before 31 March.
As only you can identify this data, your input and support is vital.
We hope you will take this opportunity to contribute to the future success and longevity of the University’s new data storage solution.
