UK Organisations Sluggish When Provisioning VM Storage

March 29th, 2017 by Sam Cobley

10% of UK organisations still take weeks or months to provision storage.

Recent research by Computing found that almost 10% of UK-based organisations take weeks, or even months, to provision new storage for VMs.

When asked ‘On average, how long does it take to provision storage for use by virtual machines in your organisation?’, 7% of respondents answered ‘weeks’, with 2% admitting ‘months’. In total, 59% of respondents said it takes them hours or longer, with only 6% answering that storage can be provisioned in seconds. The real picture of how long it takes for this storage to be useful is possibly worse still as, even once provisioned, it still needs to be carved up and assigned to the applications that use it and, in a lot of cases, populated with data, adding yet more time.
