Budgeting for your storage

Let's talk about budgeting for your storage infrastructure.

This is the first in a series of videos we have released. These videos talk about how to help solve issues regarding larger decisions like your storage infrastructure, how to budget for storage, and how you value your storage.

The video above explores storage hardware infrastructure, aspects you should look for, and how to avoid overpaying yearly contracts for underperforming storage systems.

Did you know we now offer clustered storage training?

We have combined our best practices, practical research, and real-world discoveries for a well-maintained highly-available storage clustering solution into a two-day Bootcamp about clustered (Ceph) storage systems.

This 45Drives Bootcamp provides a solid foundation of Ceph clustered storage systems. You will begin by learning Ceph theory, laying out all the concepts necessary for the practicum. Then on day two, you will build upon that knowledge and build your cluster from scratch! 

So, if you want a deeper understanding of Ceph and the expertise to maintain your organization's critical systems — this might be the BootCamp for you! 

Get certified in 2 days!
