#3 – Paying for Competing Tools
Are your employees spending too much time switching between tools trying to find the information they’re looking for? While the right tools can help you get the job done more quickly and efficiently, too many tools, or competing tools, are just wasting money and time. It might be time to reevaluate the tools your business is using.
Imagine looking at a photo of a mountain. What do you see? Obviously, the mountain. But what are you missing? What you don’t see is the bear inside the mountain. Is your data only showing you the mountain, but it’s missing what’s happening on a deeper level? Too many native vendor tools need consistent monitoring and a devoted employee to watch the tool, and even then, far too often, they still miss the bear and only show you the mountain.
Not only is VSI simplicity, but VSI shows you the bear, that deeper level, so you don’t miss anything. Don’t make things more complicated than they need to be. Save money and consolidate multiple tools into one with VSI.
#4 – Not Reallocating Orphaned Space
Buying things you don’t need is a guaranteed way to waste money. And buying unnecessary storage happens more often than you might realize due to orphan storage. Do you think you have less storage than you actually do? Maybe you had storage assigned to a particular project that was later canceled, and so that storage was never used. But if that storage was never reclaimed, then it might continue to show up as ‘allocated’ even if it was actually available.
One of the key pieces of information that VSI provides to IT leaders is the amount of Orphaned Space contained in each storage array. In just a few minutes, VSI can help you identify available space, avoid wasting money on new storage and extend the life of your current data capabilities.
#5 – Overspending on Maintenance Renewal
What happens when the warranty on your storage or servers is about to end? You could renew your warranty or purchase new, but both of these options are incredibly expensive. Instead, you could save 50% or more on maintenance renewal costs with VSI. Not only will VSI save you money, but you will also get a better, more complete view of your multi-vendor storage environment.
