Storage management is a general storage industry phrase that is used to describe the tools, processes, and policies used to manage storage networks and storage services such as virtualization, replication, mirroring, security, compression, traffic analysis and other services. The phrase storage management also encompasses numerous storage technologies including process automation, real-time infrastructure products and storage provisioning.
