Using Cloud computing in Storage Management is not just a new IT fad. The concept is a highly viable solution for any company seeking to enhance their presence across geographic markets without too much overhead or capital expenditures; or for companies overwhelmed by their current capital expenditures.

Storage as a service is highly seductive from a business perspective because it removes the cost and responsibility of maintaining large infrastructures from the customer and places it on the provider.

Storage Management is one of the fastest growing segments of the information technology (IT) industry because it provides a more cost-effective alternative for enterprises to achieve their business objectives than traditional packaged applications.

This book covers just about every aspect of Storage Management, from high-level overviews of the different technologies that might be appropriate for upper management, to a very nice series of "hands on" chapters that walk you through experimenting with several of the Storage Management options.

Whether you need a quick primer on Storage Management so you can talk shop with those with more detailed knowledge, or want to get a sense of the benefits of the different technologies and how they fit into the big picture of the data center, this book is an invaluable resource. It gives you the vocabulary and understanding of how all the pieces fit together than websites and technical manuals often miss.

All of the major Storage Management technologies are discussed, along with the various drivers for implementing Storage Management, and how to manage migrating to a Storage Management environment.

This book delivers precisely what CEOs, CIOs, IT managers, and technologists need to know.
