Wikibon ROI Study: Business Case for Unified Storage Consolidation for Microsoft Windows Installations

Unified storage has been a hot topic of discussion in the storage business for the last 18-24 months. The discussion has largely focused on which vendors offer which products and functionality, and the degree of unification that is actually delivered. Unified storage is particularly attractive in Microsoft Windows installations because the size of installations is big and varied enough to require the use of multiple types of storage (e.g. file and block or Ethernet and FC), but not so big that silos of storage can be justified.
