Overview: Information lifecycle management (ILM) is a sustainable storage strategy that balances the cost of storing and managing information with its business value. ILM provides a practical methodology for aligning storage costs with business priorities. IT organizations have been experiencing significant growth of storage capacity, particularly for unstructured data. In response, many IT organizations have implemented tiered storage architectures intended to drive overall storage costs down while meeting service-level requirements. This trend is the underlying basis of information lifecycle management, driving the critical need to improve storage management and automate some storage-related tasks.
