Ohio Savings implements storage management strategy with EMC

Ohio Savings Bank is implementing a full suite of lifecycle storage management services from EMC in an effort to satisfy regulatory requirements, lower operational costs and protect information assets.

The bank's information lifecycle management (ILM) strategy is based on multiple tiers of EMC networked storage - including high-end, mid-tier and archive storage tiers. This strategy is supported by EMC's storage resource management software, business continuance software and consulting services, as well as e-mail archiving software from Legato.

Jo Ann Boylan, Ohio Savings Bank's chief technology officer, says that growing data volumes and changes in regulatory requirements along with pressure to contain storage costs have made ILM a necessity.

"In the past our default had been to put just critical data on expensive disk storage and then back it up to tape," she says. "The definition of 'critical' has expanded, and we can no longer afford to do that for all of our information types."

The idea behind ILM is to make critical and frequently accessed records highly available and then move them to less-expensive storage as they age.

"We can match the right type of data to the right price point of storage and manage the evolution of that data's life span," says Boylan. "ILM will help us manage our many record types as specified by regulations. ILM makes us more competitive because it reduces our costs and lets us focus our people and IT investments on growing revenue."
