Storage Optimization Review Services

Sirius’ Storage Optimization Review Services evaluate your current storage performance, utilization, data classification and life cycle; identify areas where improvements in asset utilization can be attained; and quantify recommendations in ROI terms. Sirius can analyze performance and utilization on the storage subsystem(s), host(s) and storage network(s), to help identify potential, latent and actual contention and congestion. Then we help you impose order on your storage infrastructure and ensure that your storage investment is yielding maximum returns.

An initial high-level review is provided to validate that opportunity areas exist in your storage environment. A more detailed review is then provided to identify specific areas of optimization improvement and recommendations, for implementation based on Sirius best practices.
