Storage Services are available as a custom work request. Storage Services are those necessary to support applications and their use of data volumes. The Storage environment can consist of Direct Access Storage media (DASD), Wide Area Network Storage and Storage Area Networks (SAN). The services include support of the hardware, operating systems, and tools necessary to operate a continuous environment. Standard hardware, enterprise software, and tools will be deployed. The tools will be deployed to provide automation and reporting. These services offer periodic backup archiving and the ability to consolidate data from multiple company locations. Storage Services design and implementation has a large impact on today’s distributed systems disaster recovery. If a storage system is designed with multiple locations, redundancy, and real-time snapshots in mind, the resulting environment can totally replace the need for tape backups. All prices listed as "recurring" are monthly recurring rates.
Additional Fees: Work requests may also include "nonrecurring" implementation fees to cover labor and setup costs.
