Initial Engagement and Pre-Sales

With any engagement for new solutions, the first step in the process is understanding. Epaton engage with their customers to be fully aware of current and future storage requirements together with current and future business needs. The reason for this is that Next Generation Storage Solutions can actually enable organisations save both money and time.

Storage Assessment Service

Exponential growth in storage utilisation has created a storage management and capacity challenge for today’s IT organisations. Information has to be protected, compliant and available in line with businesses expectations.

With these factors in mind, the requirement for on-going storage capacity planning, resource deployment, utilisation management and cost control have become pre-requisites for managing an delivering an e ective storage service.

Storage Assessment Workshop Overview

Epaton understands the success of any storage assessment to be entirely dependent upon a clear understanding of the objectives. With this in mind, prior to the commencement of the formal assessment itself, Epaton recommend a storage assessment workshop.

The workshop will usually take half a day or a full day depending upon the size and complexity of the organisations’ storage infrastructure and requirements.

Project Definition Workshops (PDW)

The length of time to define a project depends on the complexity of the potential implementation. For smaller projects where the requirements are relatively straightforward, this could take as little as half a day. In the case of larger, more complex projects more time will need to be allowed.

This is a fully documented process with a detailed report and outline schedule being produced for review and agreement by all stakeholders.

What is the aim of PDW?

The aim of Epaton's Project Definition Workshop (PDW) is to ensure that project stakeholders understand and agree key information about any given project before it starts.

Hybrid flash arrays, use a mix of flash storage (SSD and NAND Flash) and spinning disk for primary storage, with the "hottest" or most-likely-to-be- accessed data stored on flash media and data less likely to be needed immediately on spinning disk. With hybrid arrays, vendors typically include software that automatically migrates data between the flash and the spinning disk tiers based on anticipated or recent access.

Below is a sample of some of the key areas which would be agreed at a Project Definition Workshop:

  1. Project goals and objectives
  2. Project scope and contents
  3. Outline schedules
  4. Staging and management control points
  5. Risks
  6. Roles and responsibilities

With no spinning platters or sweeping actuator arms in flash-based arrays, there's almost no heat generated and very little noise from devices that use flash storage. More important is the raw speed, reliability and now, durability of all-flash storage.
