Storage rightsizing and data lifecycle management
As far as storage is concerned, optimisation opportunities must also be analysed on an ongoing basis, always based on the performance/cost trade-off.
Choosing the right type of storage:
|Block Storage||Storage on disk|
|File Storage||Service of "File System" accessible via API|
|Object Storage||Storage of objects for frequent use|
|Archive Storage||Storage of archived objects (occasional use)|
For example, for the static content of a website, we do not choose disk storage but we prefer object storage.
Choose the right disk size and options.
|SSD||1 Go-4 TB||Throughput Optimized|
And then of course define the life cycle of the data, taking into account the type of data, be it content, logs, backups etc.
