At the University of Minnesota, a three-tiered storage network provides production SAN and NAS storage for applications with a variety of availability, connectivity, and performance requirements. This case study will focus on how a formalized, tiered storage infrastructure was justified, built, and scaled to serve the entire university community. It will also highlight how a commitment to an enterprise storage strategy provided solutions for business continuity, optimized server and desktop backup, interinstitutional collaborative file sharing, and enabled a true data archive service.
