Capacity and usage analysis for investigation of the following points: Free space in the managed disk groups. Is the performance of your managed disk groups suitable to support 100% capacity usage of the groups? Is striping in managed disk groups well balanced? Are all servers connected correctly?
Storage Tier analysis: in what kind of storage should be invested when capacity has to be expanded? Often it is astonishing that often high performance capacities have not to be increased. Just shift low performing volumes to cheaper storage and invest in this class for more capacity! This analysis will not provide a list of volumes because things can change. It will give you a more precise knowledge how you should invest in the future
Storage efficiency analysis How well is your Thin Provisioning and/or compression working?
