re: What Is The True Cost Of Storage?
Great start! The challenge for most IT shops is finding the over provisioned capacity. You can only capture so much when you interrogate any of the popular storage arrays deployed today. You wont see file system utilization. You have to get that from hosts that have mounted the file system. I'm looking forward to your series on storage costs.

Yes, you're right on the deduplication front! It can have a dramatic impact on storage efficiency!
