3 1. Infrastructure Assessment Service Large enterprise storage environments are often like wild forests: organically grown infrastructures of various levels of maturity mix with a wide range of technologies and departmental legacies. Expertise is often lost and even the service levels may be unclear. Missing or incomplete documentation brings huge risk to any upgrade or change. The Infrastructure Assessment Get a complete assessment of all the storage equipment and data silos across your enterprise Gain clarity regarding the actual architecture and configuration of your data storage Assess how close to capacity the whole system is running Identify the service levels the data is experiencing and how that relates to demand Get a clear picture, allowing you to make informed decisions to move forward Uncover the real risks and the untapped opportunities A GSS consultant will detect and measure the physical storage as well as its composition and virtual composition before conducting interviews to assess your business needs. In a one day workshop, the consultant will outline the findings and evaluate potential areas of improvement in line with those needs. 2. Data Classification In this service, GSS consultants organise and classify content related to selected applications according to their business value. The aim of the Data Classification Service is to ensure that data is stored, managed and secured according to its value and compliance requirements. As part of this service, storage architecture is designed and proposed with a storage catalogue. The Data Classification Service from Hitachi Data Systems Organize your date (structured and unstructured) Classify you data Understand the value of your data Improved data quality Better data transparency through new metadata Improved and more efficient data management Better performance Backup and restore processes which reflect the value of the information Trained and experienced GSS consultants use a defined script for interviews of key players, as well as exclusive tools to evaluate the data usage patterns. The consultants then facilitate a two day workshop to bring all stakeholders together to align your data strategy with business requirements. 3. Storage Economics Consulting This service provides a frank comparison of your actual storage infrastructure, its operations and costs, and your own business objectives. Assessing your infrastructure from an economical perspective, GSS looks at alternative architectures and practices, using return on investment (ROI) or total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis. Storage Economics Consulting from Hitachi Data Systems Highlight the gap between the As Is situation and the To Be objective Provide a plan for the rapid development of multiple design options (single versus multitier) Identify the costs of both your risk and hidden infrastructures Get a complete assessment, analysis, design and economical justification of the most appropriate storage architecture to meet your organization s requirements Gain a better view of your business, including ROI and TCO (comparison of alternative strategies) Identify opportunities to reduce cost Identify new opportunities to increase productivity GSS consultants assess your existing architecture, operations, risks and costs via interviews. Assessment results are presented in a one day workshop with your organization s stakeholders. Produce a financial model for TCO comparison of the current and the proposed strategy as well as determine the expected ROI of the proposed solution

4 4. Storage Service Catalogue Design This service is designed to facilitate identification of your own services descriptions as understood by your internal or external end users. The Storage Service Catalogue Design Service allows you to transparently manage your heterogeneous storage environments while demonstrating that IT can provide business value. Therefore, GSS consultants simplify the management of your storage environment by virtualizing the storage assets into one single pool, which provides clearly defined performance levels for the costs. Storage Service Catalogue Design Identify a definition of the key cost, performance, reliability and availability characteristics of your storage in comparison to your specific application requirements Assign initial storage tiers to balance resource utilization and satisfy defined service level objectives (SLOs) for your data Design a data migration plan across all tiers to minimize application downtime and maximize data availability Create a single management pane and processes for transparent management and monitoring Reduces cost and risk of managing storage by eliminating multiple interfaces and management software Substantially increases storage utilization as resources are now shared Enables flexible adjustments of the environment as business objectives evolve Reduces risk by facilitating seamless data migration across storage tiers or subsystems Increases reliability of design and implementation by using proven, effective tools in a formal design process Provides project management at all phases of discovery and design, and during transition to the new storage environment Increases IT efficiency by enabling safe and reliable data mobility without increasing administrative staff workload Simplifies service level agreement (SLA) management Provides transparent financial accountability and traceability for storage and data costs, which meet finance reporting requirements This service is delivered by dedicated consultants who assess your infrastructure, your data and your current SLA requirements before proposing a design that will allow you to increase your business model. 5. Replication Health Check The Replication Health Check Service assists you with costly bandwidth decisions, technology selection and distance data replication challenges. This service produces a detailed study of your current workload environment and makes the recommendations necessary to support and improve your replication and data protection environment. Using Hitachi Data Systems replication best practices as a reference GSS identifies the replication policies that best align your infrastructure with your business model. The Replication Health Check Service from Hitachi Data Systems will help you to: Uncover failures and redundancies in your current replication procedures Understand your replication needs (asynchronous versus synchronous) Make informed decisions about protecting critical data assets against corruption Hitachi Data Systems consultants assess your existing replication architecture, via a standard methodology coupled with interviews. Assessment results are presented in detailed report 6. Replication Design and Implementation The Replication Design and Implementation Service assists you in planning for the architectural design and physical implementation of the technology your storage environment requires. Using Hitachi Data Systems remote replication best practices, software and hardware, GSS consultants produce a detailed design and project plan for your infrastructure, leading to possible service level agreements (SLAs) with end users.
